AllHipHop News reports that Miami rapper Rick Ross has suffered another seizure and canceled shows because his medical condition makes flying unsafe. 

From AllHipHop:

“The artist has suffered a medical emergency and has been ordered by his doctors not travel,” promoters Hits and Jams Entertainment said in a statement.

Reps for Rick Ross have stated that he will make up the canceled date in Guyana, but there could be issues with a missed date in Houston the night before.

The rap star was also supposed to perform at the Bayou Music Center in Houston on April 8, but missed that performance as well.

Rick Ross will not be rescheduling the stop in Houston. 

After a similar incident last October, when Ross had to cancel performances after suffering two seizures while aboard a flight, he attributed the health problems to lack of sleep, saying in an interview, "I would get two hours of sleep and keep moving ... that has to stop." At that time, Ross noted that a "battery of tests" for cancer, diabetes and HIV had turned up nothing.
