DMX In Vegetative State; Fighting For His Life In ICU

Updated: Apr 4, 2021

Rap star DMX is right now battling for his life in a White Plains, New York area hospital.

While it has not been confirmed, a source claimed DMX suffered from an apparent overdose, while another told AllHipHop that the rap star had preexisting heart and lung issues that led to emergency hospitalization sometime last night (April 2nd).

The same source said the 50-year-old rapper, conceived Earl Simmons, flat-lined, however thankfully doctors had the option to resurrect him, although he's apparently in a vegetative state.

The Ruff Ryder's addiction to drugs started when was 14-years-old after accidentally smoking a cigarette laced with crack cocaine and he has battled substance for quite a bit of his adult life.

As we have detailed throughout the long term, DMX, who was the cornerstone of the Ruff Ryders label, has battled substance abuse and has been to rehab multiple times. His last rehab spell back in 2019 came after he finished a year sentence for tax evasion.

At the time, we were told DMX hadn't relapsed, yet took a look at himself into rehab out of fear he may again, as he felt temptations to go through creep on him again.

DMX made his re-visitation of the stage following rehab in December 2019 when he hit Hakkassan in Las Vegas, chatting it up and taking photos with fans before he hit the stage.

In October of 2019, DMX's twentieth anniversary tour was canceled after he chose to examine himself into a rehab facility trying to get calm.

Despite his issues with substance abuse, DMX has gotten perhaps the best rapper to touch the mouthpiece, and he has had an effective career as an actor as well.

DMX has released seven studio albums, It's Dark and Hell Is Hot (1998) Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood (1998)… And Then There Was X (1999), The Great Depression (2001), Grand Champ (2003), Year of the Dog… Again (2006), and Undisputed (2012).

DMX re-endorsed to Def Jam in 2019 and was apparently chipping away at a batch of material with Ruff Ryders' in-house maker, Swizz Beatz.

On the acting side, DMX starred opposite of major stars like Aaliyah and Jet Li in motion pictures like "Gut" (1998), "Romeo Must Die" (1998), "Exit Wounds" (2001), and most as of late, "Fast and Fierce: Death Race" (2020).

Last year, fans were excited to see DMX get back to the spotlight during an epic battle with Snoop Dogg, as part of Swizz Beatz and Timbaland's popular Verzuz arrangement.
