DMX reportedly suffered an alleged drug overdose on Friday night (April 2) and is in grave condition at a White Plains, New York, hospital, reports say.
According to TMZ, the incident occurred at his home at around 11 p.m. and triggered a heart attack. The rapper is currently in the critical care unit and sources close to him told the celebrity news outlet that X has “some brain activity” and is in a “vegitative state.” Doctors, according to TMZ, are cautioning that “he may not make it.”
DMX, whose birth name is Earl Simmons, has battled substance abuse for years and has been to rehab several times. His last stint was in 2019.
That year, Simmons checked himself into rehab out of fear he might relapse again, but the effort reportedly failed, reports say.
One of DMX’s latest musical headlines was when he faced off against Snoop Dogg in a July 2020 Verzuz battle, which saw more than 500,000 viewers tune in.
