DMX’s family is by his bedside as he lies on life support, practically without brain activity at a White Plains hospital.
The 50-year-old rapper collapsed at his home late Friday following a drug overdose that deprived his brain of oxygen for around 30 minutes as paramedics tried to revive him.
The extended lack of oxygen severely damaged DMX’s brain with one family member reporting him unresponsive and not looking good.
“Last night Earl DMX Simmons was rushed to the hospital after collapsing at home,” the artist’s team said.
“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.”
“Earl is someone whose life and music have been a source of inspiration and strength to so many people around the world.”
“It’s reassuring to see his fans return that same passion and energy to him during this time of need.”
DMX’s fiancée, mom, ex-wife, and his 15 children all rushed to be by his side as he fights for yet another chance.
Back in 2016, the star miraculously survived a brutal drug overdose that left him not breathing and without a pulse.
