Pensacola, F.L. - Rapper Tone Loc, best known for the 1980's hits "Wild Thing" and "Funky Cold Medina", collapsed early Friday morning while performing at the Capt’n Fun Beach Club on Pensacola Beach.
The rapper was taken away in an ambulance to an area hospital. He did not appear to be conscious. According to an Escambia County Sheriff’s deputy who was working security at the show, the rapper apparently fell down and had a seizure. Those details have not yet been confirmed by medical officials.
Tone Loc has a history of having seizures while performing. He suffered a seizure during a January 2008 performance in Charlotte, N.C. Officials won't say whether or not the heat and humidity at the open-air club contributed to his collapse.
