Veteran Los Angeles, California Tone Loc was performing on Friday (June 15) at The Moody Theater in Austin, Texas, when he suddenly collapsed.

TMZ reports that Loc’s collapse is being blamed on heat exhaustion. Loc’s manager reportedly said that the venue was extremely hot.

After falling, the longtime Delicious Vinyl Records rapper was helped off stage, given water. He returned to perform the rest of his set 30 minutes later. He allegedly performed the same songs as before he fell.



This is at least the third time Loc has collapsed during a performance. In 2009, he was rushed to a hospital in Florida after collapsing, and the same happened in 2011 in Atlanta, Georgia.
