DMX Taken Off Life Support

According to X’s attorney Murray Richman, there’s some good news – finally – regarding X. However, despite the positive direction Earl Simmons is going, the lawyer acknowledges he’s still not out of the life-threatening situation quite yet.

“He’s been in the hospital as the result of a heart attack. He has been taken off life support and he’s breathing on his own. But we are concerned. It would be disingenuous of me to suggest that I’m not a worried man at this point. Earl Simmons, DMX, in my opinion, is one of the great poets of our time and what he had to say, if people bothered to listen and they could overcome their hostility to rap would learn a great deal.” (PIX 11)

DMX Possibly Facing Death

According to reports, the drug overdose took place last night before midnight and placed X in a hospital. The OD triggered a heart attack and initial reports claim things are looking grave for the ex-Def Jam icon.

DMX was rushed to a hospital in White Plains, New York and is in the critical care unit. We’re told he has “some brain activity.” Another source says he’s in a “vegetative state” and doctors have cautioned he may not make it. As we have reported over the years, DMX, who was the cornerstone of the Ruff Ryders label, has battled substance abuse and has been to rehab several times. His last rehab stint back in 2019 came after he completed a 12-month sentence for tax evasion. (TMZ)
