DMXThe latter’s grim prognosis has taken a positive turn.
After being admitted to the intensive care unit following a overdose and heart attack Friday night (April 2), X is better than before, according to his lawyer, Murray Richman. On Saturday April 3, Richman spoke with New York City PIX11News and gave an update on the rapper’s state of health.
“He was hospitalized with a heart attack,” said Richman. “He’s been taken out of the life support system, he’s breathing on his own, but we’re worried. It would be dishonest of me to suggest that I am not a worried man at this point. Earl Simmons, DMX, in my opinion, is one of the greatest poets of our time. And what he had to say, if they bothered to listen, if they could overcome their hostility to rap, would learn a lot. “
News first broke that X was hospitalized on Saturday morning on TMZ. According to their reports, the rapper from the Yonkers in New York City suffered a drug overdose, which resulted in a heart attack. He was rushed to a hospital in White Plains, New York, where he was reportedly “brain dead” or in a “vegetative state”.
Many rappers in the hip-hop community jumped on social media to offer good wishes to the 50-year-old MC, including Snoop Dogg, Rick Ross, TI and more. “Let’s keep the vibes positive and prayers high for my brother,” Swizz Beatz suggested on Twitter.
XXL contacted the DMX team for comment.
