Ying Yang Twins’ D-Roc Collapses On Stage During Concert

by Taylor Cunningham

D-Roc of the Ying Yang Twins reportedly collapsed and had to be carried off the stage mid-concert this weekend.

The rapper was in Springfield, MO at the Ozark Empire Fair headlining for Vanilla Ice on July 29th. About 30 minutes into the show, he fell to the ground. Security team members rushed to help him stand, but he could not. And they were forced to carry him away to medics.

According to a video of the incident that is circulating on Twitter, the 43-year-old was conscious as he was taken away.

As TMZ writes, it is still unclear why D-Roc collapsed. Though some people believe he suffered from heat exhaustion as the temperatures were in the upper 80s. There is no news on his current condition nor has the group announced if he was taken to the hospital. However, the music continued without him. So it is likely that his condition was not life-threatening or serious.

The Ying Yang Twins are a Grammy-nominated hip-hop group that rose to fame in the early 2000s. The members include D’Angelo Holmes (D-Roc) and Eric Jackson (Kaine). The rappers are most famous for collaborating on the Britney Spears album In The Zone in 2003. They also lent their vocals to songs such as Lil John’s Get Low.

The group also released the hit singles, Salt Shaker, Wait, and Badd.

The Ying Yang Twins are currently touring until October. The group has yet to release if this weekend’s incident will affect any of the upcoming event dates.

This is a developing story.
