Rapper Rick Ross suffered a medical emergency that forced the plane he was on to return abruptly to a Florida airport.
Authorities say Ross suffered the unspecified problem aboard a Delta Air Lines flight Friday afternoon. The flight was on its way to Memphis, where Ross was scheduled to perform later Friday.
Officials say the flight landed at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and was met by paramedics. Officials say he was conscious and breathing. Ross was taken to a local hospital. His condition was not immediately known.
A Memphis official says Ross called and promised he would still make Friday night's event.
