Rapper Tone Loc collapsed on stage during a weekend performance in Iowa, and according to reports – refused to be taken to the hospital…


Tone Loc collapsing on stage during a concert on Friday night proved to be a wild thing indeed — as when the rapper he woke up he then performed the same set of songs he did before he passed out.

TMZ reports:

Rapper Tone Loc collapsed on stage last night during his concert, after suffering from heat exhaustion, TMZ has learned.
The “Wild Thing” rapper was performing Friday night at The Moody Theater in Austin, TX … when he suddenly hit the deck mid-performance.

Loc’s manager tells TMZ … the inside of the venue felt like it was over 100 degrees, which caused the rapper to fall. He was immediately helped off stage, given water and cooled off for 30 minutes before returning to finish his set.

According to tweets from numerous eye witnesses however, the rapper weirdly performed the exact same songs as before the fall.

Stay Tuned.
