Rapper Rick Ross is reportedly fighting for his life right now after a medical emergency last night in his home. According to TMZ Ross is currently hooked up to a machine that is controlling the functions of his heart and lungs.
Rick is in a Miami area hospital getting treatment in the cardiac unit — a strong sign he might have suffered a heart attack which manifested itself as respiratory issues early Thursday morning.
Rick was rushed to a hospital after a 911 caller reported he was unresponsive and “slobbing at the mouth.”
We’re told doctors have put him on something called ECMO, or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. It’s a technique used to oxygenate his blood outside of his body, before it’s pumped back into his body.
