Tone Loc

Collapses on Stage

Concert Canceled

breaking news

0814_tone_loc_getty_2A Tone Loc concert was cut short last night after the rapper suffered from an apparent seizure on stage ... and it's FAR from the first time it's happened.

According to various reports, Loc had finished a song during his show in Des Moines, IA when he collapsed. The Des Moines Register says Loc was attended to for five minutes on stage before the audience was asked to leave.

It is unclear what his condition is now.

This isn't the first time Loc has taken a nose-dive mid-concert. In 2009 he was rushed to a Florida hospital after collapsing on stage and in 2011 he was hospitalized in Atlanta for exhaustion after another mid-rap fall. 

Then in June 2012 he collapsed on stage from his manager said was heat exhaustion. And in August 2012 he suffered from an apparent seizure while watching a comedy show. His manager attributed that episode to food poisoning.

Loc once told police who suspected him of DUI that he simply had a seizure behind the wheel.

What is going on with rapers, seizures, and collapsing on stage these days? Seizures can be controlled with medication. Why do these people not take it or why are they doing things to cause their brains to seize? Crazy world we live in!

He really does have issues with this. I had him play a show in Austin back in 2010 and he fell out. We took him downstairs for a few minutes and he finished out. It was pretty scary.

One hit wonders have to work way too hard to keep bread on the table. So much so that they wind up suffering exhaustion. Trying to pimp one hit for the rest of your life can be dangerous to your health!!! Might as well get a regular real world job......

You arent a bad @$$ rapper until you have had a couple seizures. Its part of the charter for getting into the HipHop hall of fame.
