Rick Ross has been hospitalized after being found unresponsive.

Rick Ross' family has denied the reports that the rapper has been taken to the hospital and is now hooked into life support.

A source claimed to TMZ that Ross was taken to the hospital, where he received respiratory treatment, possibly for pneumonia.

TMZ says law enforcement was called when Ross came to and became "combative". Hopefully, Rick Ross gets out of the hospital soon.

Rick Ross has opened five Wing Stops in the Memphis area. While speaking with "The Breakfast Club", Ross said, "You know, I never did it because I always thought, like, I would end up [expletive] a female rapper and [expletive] the business up". In Oct. 2011, the rapper was taken to the hospital after suffering from two seizures on two separate flights. "It was a case of me not getting enough rest, enough sleep", he later told BET's 106 & Park (via Us Weekly).

Ross also is famous for his feuds, as with fellow rap star 50 Cent, and for run-ins with police.
