Rapper Tone Loc has collapsed on stage while performing in Iowa.

Loc, whose real name is Anthony T. Smith, collapsed after finishing a song during a Saturday night concert in Des Moines. Three of the newspaper's workers who were at the show said people attended to Loc for several minutes before fans were asked to leave.

Loc's condition wasn't immediately clear Sunday.

It's not the rapper's first time collapsing on stage. Loc, who is best known for his 1980s hits "Funky Cold Medina" and "Wild Thing," collapsed and had a seizure during a 2009 concert in Pensacola, Fla. Authorities said he had apparently overheated.

Loc also collapsed in 1995 while attending a Los Angeles Lakers game. The reason he collapsed wasn't given.
