DMX In Grave Condition Following Overdose, Heart Attack
DMX is in grave condition after reportedly suffering a heart attack triggered by a drug overdose. The rapper was rushed to a hospital in White Plains, New York last night and is currently in the critical care unit. Sources tell TMZ that he is in a “vegetative state” with “some brain activity” and the prognosis isn’t good.
DMX has struggled with substance abuse issues throughout his career. He last checked himself into rehab in 2019, fearing a relapse after serving a year-long prison sentence for tax evasion. He performed a Verzuz battle against Snoop Dogg last year and has reportedly been working on a new album featuring Bono, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Alicia Keys, and Usher.
UPDATE: Murray Richman, DMX’s attorney, says that the rapper has been taken off life support and is breathing on his own. “But we are concerned,” Richman adds. “It would be disingenuous of me to suggest that I am not a worried man at this particular point.”
