Default DMX has died, aged 50

Very much a breaking story, some are reporting that he's died, others are refuting it.

Quote:
DMX suffered a drug overdose Friday night and is currently in the hospital ... and the prognosis is not good.

Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ, the OD occurred at his home at around 11 PM. Our sources say the overdose triggered a heart attack.

DMX was rushed to a hospital in White Plains, New York and is in the critical care unit. We're told he has "some brain activity." Another source says he's in a "vegetative state" and doctors have cautioned he may not make it.

As we have reported over the years, DMX, who was the cornerstone of the Ruff Ryders label, has battled substance abuse 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.

At the time, we were told DMX hadn't relapsed, but checked himself into rehab out of fear he might again, as he felt temptations to use creep up on him again.

DMX made his return to 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.

During the Vegas show, he took a moment to tell fans, "When you fall down, get back up, everyone here has been through some s**t and you never know what God is willing to do for you until you need him to do something for you."

Some updates

Quote:
7:25 PM PT -- We just got an official statement from DMX's rep ... "Last night Earl 'DMX' Simmons was rushed to the hospital after collapsing at home. 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 rep goes on ... "The Simmons Family appreciates the overwhelming outpouring of heartfelt love, encouragement, support and prayers for Earl. Earl is someone whose life and music have been a source of inspiration and strength to so many people around the world. It is reassuring to see his fans return that same passion and energy to him during his time of need."

5:40 PM PT -- A family member of X's tells TMZ ... his children are flying in to see him.

5:20 PM PT -- A family member of X's tells TMZ ... paramedics tried resuscitating him for 30 minutes, and during that time he was deprived of oxygen. Doctors told the family the lack of oxygen severely impacted X's brain. One family source said, "It's not looking good."
There were some rumours going around that he'd been taken off life support and was breathing without assistance but those seem to have been erroneous.

He seems to have had a strangely stressful life from the snippets Iím seeing .. absent father , abusive mum , placed in childrenís home ... addicted to cocaine at a very young age , fathered at least 15 kids , mainly from multiple extramarital affairs during his marriage ..
registered for bankruptcy a few years ago despite being a remarkably successful rapper ..

Thatís just what I remember

Yes he chose a Wrong turn.
On his way out of life, sadly.

Life In The City.
According to an interview with him, he was actually coaxed into crack cocaine addiction at the age of 14 because his so-called "mentor" would lace joints with the stuff without his knowledge.

I know addiction is a sensitive issue and some would say he's responsible for his later actions but if he was literally hooked on the stuff as a minor, I have huge sympathy for him and think he had part of his life stripped away from him in such a cruel and covert way.

...this is so, so sad and Iím not really familiar with him as an artist...his life seems to have been filled with much sadness and itís so tragic that he could never escape that...


During the Vegas show, he took a moment to tell fans, "When you fall down, get back up, everyone here has been through some s**t and you never know what God is willing to do for you until you need him to do something for you."...may he rest in peace and with his God.....
