Rapper Tone Loc collapsed and passed out and had a seizure during an outdoor concert in Florida.

 

According to reports, Tone Loc, born Anthony Smith, was performing at the Capt’n Fun Beach Club early Friday morning (May 29).

 

He apparently suffered the seizure due to overheating, although the temperature of the atmosphere was listed in the low 80’s.

 

During his six-song set, he made several references to the heat, before he passed out on the stage.

 

The rapper was rushed to a nearby hospital in an ambulance, where he is currently being treated.

 

According to reports, this is not the first time Tone Loc has suffered from a seizure on stage.

 

He also had one during a performance in Charlotte, N.C. on January 2008.

Tone Loc is known around the world for his voice and hit singles “Wild Thing” and “Funky Cold Medina,” which helped introduce Hip-Hop to new audiences.

 

He has also done extensive voice work for commercials and cartoons.

 

Tone Loc has also appeared in a number of high profile movies, including 1994’s blockbuster, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, which also starred Jim Carrey.
