Tone-Loc Collapses Onstage During Iowa Show

Rapper Tone-Loc collapsed during a concert Saturday night on a bridge in downtown Des Moines, Iowa, The Associated Press reports.

The 47-year-old MC fell after finishing a song, and the show was called off several minutes later while Loc was being treated. Though paramedics arrived on the scene, Police Sgt. Steve Woody told the Des Moines Register, Loc refused to be taken to a hospital.

Tone-Loc Pleads Guilty to Gun and Domestic Violence Charges

According to the AP there was no official word from Loc's camp regarding the incident or why Loc, real name Anthony T. Smith, collapsed.

This isn't the first time the "Funky Cold Medina" and "Wild Thing" rapper has collapsed on stag, either: In 1995 he passed out during a Los Angeles Lakers game. He suffered a seizure during a 2009 concert in Penascola, Florida, and in 2011 he collapsed during a show in Atlanta, reportedly from exhaustion.
