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.

"a show on average of once every 5 days" ... Spending an hour or more singing, dancing, and jumping around in the heat from the lights would probably be sort of like running a marathon, at least as far as water loss goes. So just doing that once a week for 2 months can really throw your system out of balance. Add to that any sort of drug or alcohol use and you can end up in big big trouble.

If all he needed were some fluids, it was probably an electrolyte imbalance related to dehydration.

Have none of you heard of EPILEPSY?? Let me let you all in on something one out of every 100 people has EPILEPSY. SEIZURES. I have Epilepsy so does my daughter and my niece. It is a neurological disorder. Anyone that has 2 or more seizures in thier life has Epilepsy. Here we go Rick Ross has Epilepsy, Tone-Loc has Epilepsy, Elton John Has Epilepsy, Neil Young Has Epilepsy, Lindasay Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac has Epilepsy- just google "Famous people with Epilepsy" EDUCATE yourselves!!

There are clearly health issues being ignored by these guys as well as poor judgement being made by the younger successful rappers in the industry, poor management, lack of common sense, all these things play a roll, know when its time to retire, move on to better things that suite your lifestyle, leave the drugs alone, be thankful, and pray for the best.

People people these folks are old. And on top of that exhaustion with an IV means that you did not have enough fluids in your body. The shows are what you see. There could be several other things going on that would cause exhaustion in his life. You just never know. We have to learn not to assume the worse from everyone. He may be suceptable to seizures but does not want people to know because he wont be able to book gigs with such a serious health issue. I mean even Toni Braxton did not want people to know that she had lupus for that reason.
