Tone Loc

Collapsed on Stage in Atlanta

10/16/2011 9:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tone Loc
Tone Loc collapsed on stage during a performance in Atlanta last night ... TMZ has learned.

Loc's manager tells TMZ he was suffering from exhaustion. Loc was transported to a nearby hospital and given an IV ... but the manager says he is fine now.

TMZ received emails from several people claiming to be present at the concert who said Loc suffered from a seizure, but we cannot confirm this.

The manager added ... Tone was merely exhausted from doing 12 shows in the last two months. It does seem curious that doing a show on average of once every five days would lead to such extreme exhaustion.

Loc's episode comes just a day after rapper Rick Ross was hospitalized TWICE in one day for seizures.

I see we have once again resurrected the old excuse of "exhaustion".


In the past, exhaustion usually led to rehab...

Something is happening to the "rappers" in America.
They have shifted from carrying guns to health disasters
I hope this with produce the badly needed PR they are aiming for.

Why is it that only "entertainers" get exhaustion? Twelve shows in 2 months and he has "exhaustion". When someone has a job that requires 12 hours a day for 6 days a week, if they cry exhaustion, they are replaced. Have fun in rehab "Tone". You're an adult, use your real name.

Wow, twelve whole shows in two months, huh?

I think there must be some especially bad drugs going around with the rappers right now.

I thought you needed sleep for exhaustion. Apparently sleep now comes in IV form?

Never once have I known or even heard of a non-celebrity being hospitalized for exhaustion. This is like saying that a person who has been sick for years died of respiratory failure; it's a non-descriptive excuse. Sadly, too many celebrities abuse their health, no doubt sometimes pushed by overwork. But he's a middle-aged man and they are vulnerable to heart attacks, even with no prior symptoms. Hopefully, he's not doing drugs, or abusing alcohol. Good luck to him and I hope that he recovers soon.

I think the problem may be the lay person's definition of seizure (and for the Rick story, CPR). OR TMZ trying to use any word they think sounds ominous. Think you might want to Google that, guys.
