Rick Ross will perform tonight as scheduled, despite a serious medical scare yesterday, this according to the venue he is supposed to perform at.

As TMZ first reported, Ross was hospitalized twice for seizures as he tried to travel to Memphis for a show last night. He never ended up performing.

Ross is slated to perform at the Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina as part of homecoming at North Carolina A&T State University. According to an employee at the venue, Ross' people called the venue this morning to confirm that he is doing better and will be on stage as planned tonight.

Calls to Ross' reps were not returned.

He's going to look like a black Ric Flair up there. He'll be struggling after 5 minutes.

I wonder how much he's getting paid for the performance then. It can't be pocket money if he's so determined to risk it all.

Is he going to try and fly there? My money is on another seizure if he does. He obviously has something going on in his brain, and possibly it's also affecting his judgement.

It is painfully obvious that money means more to him than his health. God is trying to tell him something and Mr. Ross is not listening. I do not listen to rap period but I do wish his recovery to be expedient.

Wow...dude just needs to take a hint and focus on his health. This is just foolish. I hope we don't see a post soon saying he's died.

He had a seizure twice for a reason...something is seriously wrong and he's not listening to his body. If the doctors gave him medicine for his seizures and said he could perform then fine, but I don't think that's the case

I don't wish ill will on anyone but Rick is playing with his life. He will have seizures again and next time he might not be so lucky.

TMZ stands for The Militirized Zone. Just like f-ing Vietnam man. Taking pictures is dangerous.

I am not sure if you read TMZ Rosie but seriously this is a great time to stop the tour and really find out whats going on with your health and get it right.You can't take it with you but you can live another day and make a great new album if you slow down and take care of yourself.

good luck fam but keeping it 1000 the hustle can wait.

Holla!!
