DMX reportedly suffered a drug overdose on Friday night and is currently in critical care.
Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ the overdose triggered a heart attack at his home at around 11pm. The rapper was rushed to a hospital in White Plains, New York and remains in critical condition. Some sources close to the rapper also say the 50-year old Ruff Ryder has “some brain activity,” while others say he’s in a “vegetative state,” with doctors fearing he may not make it.
DmX has battled with substance abuse for years 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.
Several hip hop stars including Mike Will Made It, Rick Ross, Ja Rule, Ice T and Missy Elliot have taken to social media to share their support and prayers for the rapper and his family.

DMX’s story is so heartbreaking. He was truly one of the most captivating artists of my lifetime. It’s hard to explain just how massive he was in the late 90s/early 00s. He touched people in a ways I can’t explain. Prayers up for the legend.
