Days after suffering a heart attack that left his brain deprived of oxygen for half an hour, rapper DMX’s condition remains unchanged as he lays in a coma at White Plains Hospital.

“DMX is currently on life support and in a coma,” the artist’s manager Steve Rifkind said. “There are multiple people with inaccurate information about his well-being and it is not helpful and productive.”
