Rick Ross' family has denied the reports that the rapper has been taken to the hospital and is currently hooked into life support.
Fellow hip-hop artist Fat Trel, whose real name is Martrel Reeves, also gave fans an update on the "Purple Lamborghini" singer's condition.
"HE IN DA HOSPITAL BUT HE IS NOT ON 'LIFE SUPPORT," Trel wrote on Instagram. "HE GOOD."
On Friday, March 2, TMZ reported that Ross was rushed to the hospital after a 911 caller reported that the rapper was unresponsive and "slobbing at the mouth." The publication revealed that the 42-year-old was admitted to the cardiac unit of a hospital in Miami, which strongly suggests that he suffered a heart attack that was initially thought to be a respiratory issue.
Sources added that the medical team in the hospital has placed Ross on a machine called ECMO, a technique used to oxygenate his blood outside of his body before pumping it back in.
The site added that the procedure is essentially a form of life support.
An update on TMZ stated that the family denies the music mogul is on life support and even denied that Ross was hospitalized.
Ross' friends in the business, including Missy Elliott and Lil Wayne, have sent their love and prayers for the rapper's fast recovery over on social media.

According to the Rolling Stone, Ross has been hospitalized before following a seizure attack. He was on a flight heading to Memphis when the plane had to make an emergency landing in order to provide him proper medical attention. He suffered another seizure on a plane around the same time.
A couple of weeks after, he told the press that his seizure was caused by exhaustion. He explained that his doctors tested him for cancer, diabetes, and HIV but found nothing.
"I would get two hours of sleep and keep moving," he shared in an interview. "That has to stop."
At the time, he told the site that he has not gotten a decent amount of sleep in five years to attend to his activities as a hip-hop star.
