Rick Ross according to reports has been placed on life support, reportedly, at a Miami-area hospital.

Sources close to TMZ say the MMG mogul was hooked up to a machine that is performing the functions of his heart and lungs. He’s currently getting treatment in the cardiatric unit.

The insider describes the procedure as ECMO, or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. It’s a technique used to oxygenate his blood outside of his body, before it’s pumped back into his body.

This latest development comes after initial reports indicated that the Rick Ross is down with possible Pneumonia after he was found breathing heavy and unresponsive on Thursday morning.

However, MMG rapper Fat Trel who is signed to Rick Ross’ label debunk the report that he is on life support.

“JUS TALKED 2 MY BIG HOMIE… HE GOOD… HE IN DA HOSPITAL BUT HE IS NOT ON “LIFE SUPPORT” … HE GOOD,” Trel wrote.
