Rap Legend DMX hospitalised following drug overdose


DMX was hospitalized Friday night after suffering a heart attack that was triggered by an apparent drug overdose, TMZ reports.

After overdosing at his home around 11 p.m., DMX was rushed to a hospital in White Plains, New York. He is currently in the critical care unit. A source close to the family tells TMZ that the 50-year-old rapper has “some brain activity.” Another source says he’s in a “vegetative state” and doctors have cautioned he may not make it.

DMX has battled substance abuse for years, last checking into a rehab facility in October 2019, less than nine months after he was released from prison on tax evasion charges.

Several of X’s peers in the hip-hop community took to social media to share their support, including Rick Ross, T.I., Missy Elliot, and Ja Rule.
