Tone Loc recovering

By Robert Kirchgassner,

Rapper Tone Loc is recovering after collapsing onstage during a concert Saturday.

Loc, whose birth name is Anthony Terrell Smith, was performing the song "Funky Cold Medina" in Atlanta, GA when the attack occurred. His manager said that the collapse was due to exhausting from performing over the last few months. But, following a brief hospital stay, Loc is reportedly fine.

Loc had previously collapsed onstage during a concert in Pensacola, FL in 2009. His manager attributed that collapse to flight delays and the heat.

Loc was arrested on Dec. 2010 in Los Angeles on suspicion for DUI.
Loc’s recent collapse occurred 11 days after he pled no contest to charges of domestic violence and weapons charges in connection to a June incident with the mother of one of his children.

He was sentenced to one day in jail, three years probation, community service and anger-management therapy.
