WOW this is very sad to have to report but rapper/actor DMX, real name Earl Simmons, had a drug overdose on Friday night around 11 p.m. in his home in New York that triggered a heart attack. He was transferred to a hospital in White Plains, New York and is in the critical care unit. He’s reportedly brain dead.
While really awful and sad news it’s not shocking as he’s known to have a bad drug habit for decade even having some rappers diss him by calling him “Crackman X” and some thought he wouldn’t make it as long as he has. I’ve held out hope for years that he was getting it together but from the looks of it the man couldn’t say no to the drugs, and he might now become another sad statistic of an artist gone before his time should have ended due to drugs. Let’s pray for him.
The Ruff Ryder legend and movie star is the father of several children, including four with his ex-wife Tashera Simmons. My prayers for a miracle for DMX are going out and hope the rest of his fans, and family also place him under their prayers. I’ll keep everyone informed on the followup on his condition as soon as I have them.
