DMX on Life Support Following Heart Attack After Drug Overdose by HipHopNewsGTV(m): 11:32pm On Apr 03
“It would be disingenuous of me to suggest that I am not a worried man,” rapper’s attorney says

DMX was taken to a New York hospital Friday night following a reported drug overdose. The rapper’s attorney confirmed to Rolling Stone that he is currently hospitalized and on life support.

TMZ first reported Saturday that DMX was in “grave condition” — two sources said the rapper is in a “vegetative state” or has “some brain activity” — after a drug overdose triggered a heart attack. DMX was rushed to a White Plains, New York hospital late Friday night and placed in the critical care unit.

The rapper’s health status was murky as of Saturday evening due to conflicting reports. DMX’s attorney Murray Richman first confirmed to Pix11 that the rapper had suffered a heart attack and has “been taken off life support system and is breathing on his own.” He added, “It would be disingenuous of me to suggest that I am not a worried man.” But speaking to Rolling Stone later that evening, he says he was “given wrong information” and said that the rapper remains on life support. He could not confirm if the heart attack was drug-related.

“Last night, Earl ‘DMX’ Simmons was rushed to the hospital after collapsing at home,” the rapper’s rep said in a statement to TMZ on Saturday. “At this time, he remains in ICU in critical condition. Earl has been a warrior his entire life. This situation represents yet another road he must conquer.” The site added that, per a family member, the rapper’s children have flown in to see him

The influential Yonkers rapper has long struggled with drug issues, most recently in October 2019, when DMX canceled a series of tour dates in order to return to a drug habilitation center.

“In his ongoing commitment to putting family and sobriety first, DMX has checked himself into a rehab facility,” DMX’s Instagram told fans at the time. “He apologizes for his cancelled shows and thanks his fans for their continued support.”

Drug overdose right? What/who should I blame? The drug, DMX or the manufacturer? By natural phenomenon, the drug and the manufacturer have no case to bear, DMX you are drilled and done with.

Y'all Gon Make Me Lose My Mind.. with this news sad

Since i was in Sec School.. This guy been struggling with this!? This path he finds himself is not alien to him.. Please recover fast Dawg..

Drug addiction can be very hard to leave especially when it has become a habit or when even your body craves for it via withdrawal symptoms..

But to me, its more of a mental thing.. Once you control the mind, your body inevitably has to follow..

I am currently on a pathway to stop completely binge consumption of Ethanol.. (maybe except Red Wine but just a cup) .. And have made so far a Lil amount of progress...

even social drinking I would like to stop because from there the urge can come back plus my tolerance is so high I did have to consume a considerable large amount to feel the buzz..

Am sharing this for those that are in my situation, please let's take it easy on the bottle, our health, family, finances, social life and lots more are at risk and deep down you know it.. If we can't at the very least make an attempt to take care of ourselves, why then should we expect ppl or a divine being to go all out for us?

Peace..
