Tone Loc is doing fine after he suffered a collapse on stage in Atlanta, Georgia, a similar one he had in Florida. The “Wild Thing” performer suffered a seizure and was transported to a nearby hospital. He has since been released and his rep said he is doing fine.

Loc, who’s real name is Anthony Terrell Smith, had a similar collapses in 2009 during an outdoor performance in Pensacola Beach, Florida. The cause was said to be overheating and exhaustion.

The latest collapse comes 11 days after Loc pleaded no contest to weapons and domestic violence charges, stemming from an arrest in Los Angeles on June 18 following an alleged physical altercation with the mother of one of his children.

The rapper was found in possession of an unregistered assault weapon, although a release from the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office specified that it was not used in the assault.

He was sentenced to one day in county jail, three years of formal probation, 30 days of community service and 52 weeks of anger-management counseling by Burbank Superior Court Judge Patrick Hegarty.

The collapse also comes just days after another rapper Rick Ross suffered two seizures in one day, resulting in the cancellation of two performances. The 35-year-old rapper, whose real name is William Roberts, became unconscious due to a seizure on Friday shortly after his plane took off from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Tone-Loc’s rep claims he is just exhausted after performing 12 shows in just two months.
