TMZ reports that Ross' girlfriend and a few of his close friends packed into a white Rolls-Royce and dashed to the Miami hospital he's staying at on Friday.

Ross' family later in the night denied that he was placed on a life support machine despite wide-ranging reports that the rapper and label head was clinging to life.

The police were called when Ross became "combative" with the paramedics who arrived to help him. "We didn't write a report on it".

"I'm still losing weight, and now I'm starting to build hard muscle in places", Ross, who once weighed 350 pounds, told Men's Health at the time, according to People. Back in 2011, he suffered serious seizure attacks during a flight forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing. Ross attributed the incidents to lack of sleep, but has since changed has lifestyle and diet.

Meanwhile, hundreds of artists from the hip-hop community went on Twitter to send their prayers and well wishes to the MMG founder.
