Recently crowned 2014 Freshmen Rich Homie Quan suffered two seizures during a video shoot for his new single 'Walk-Thru' Tuesday night in Atlanta. The rapper Problem was also at the shoot and bore witness to Quan having back to back seizures and falling and hitting his head.
The rapper is alright today and has been in the hospital since. Quan blames the seizures and head injury on working too hard and putting a lot of stress on his body. He also blames heat exhaustion.
Quan is experiencing scrutiny from media websites like TMZ stating that the accident was caused by the rapper going on a 'sizzurp' drinking binge for several days prior to the video shoot.

This drink is popularized in modern hip hop culture and has been the cause of rappers, like Lil Wayne, suffering from seizures.
Rich Homie Quan denies these rumors and states that the fall was simply due to his hard work and over exerting himself. He promises his fans that he won't stop the hustle now, but thanks God that he only suffered minor injuries after this scary incident.
