There is still no word on the status of Rick Ross‘s health or whereabouts since he suffered two medical seizures on Friday (Oct. 14) in a span of six hours. The Miami rapper canceled his scheduled Saturday concert (Oct. 15) in Greensboro, N.C., in conjunction with North Carolina A&T’s homecoming celebration. No further information was provided.

Rozay’s medical scares started Friday afternoon when he had a seizure aboard his flight from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to Memphis, and he was hospitalized briefly. After leaving a Fort Lauderdale hospital, Ross boarded a private jet and defiantly tweeted, “Memphis here I come,” along with a short video. Then he suffered his second seizure while on the plane, which had to make an emergency landing in Birmingham, Ala.

Ross reportedly was rushed to the University of Alabama hospital for treatment. A UAB rep told the Birmingham News that no one under the name Rick Ross, or his real name — William Leonard Roberts II — was listed as a patient. Under federal law, patients can choose to not have their medical condition or admittance disclosed, the rep cited.

Meanwhile, Young Money rapstress Nicki Minaj is keeping Rozay in her prayers. “We actually been talking about him and praying for him because he’s such a crucial part of hip-hop right now and we’re just hoping he’s healthy,” she told MTV News. “That’s all we can do is pray and hope that he gets some rest and comes back stronger.” Cash Money CEO Birdman concurs, “Ross is a friend of the family I sure hopes he’s alright,” he says.

We are still a little concerned about Ross since his Twitter account has been silent for the entire weekend. Previously, he was tweeting up a storm. We send our prayers to Rick Ross and his family. Get well, Rozay.
