DMX suffering from a heart attack brought on by a drug overdose at his home on Friday night. Currently hospitalized, he’s in grave condition.
DMX In Grave Condition After Overdose And Heart Attack
DMX, real name Earl Simmons, the 50-year old rapper is in grave condition after suffering a drug overdose.
After his overdose, he then suffered a heart attack, reportedly. Late Friday night around 11 PM, Simmons was rushed to the hospital in White Plains, New York. Now in the critical care unit, it is not known if he will survive this.
The last time we saw DMX, he was part of a Versuz battle with Snoop Dogg, bringing upwards of half a million viewers.
No stranger to substance abuse, Simmons has tried rehab more than once. Several times, he passed out, including an incident that occurred back in February of 2016. On that occasion, DMX was found unresponsive in a Ramada Inn parking lot in Yonkers.
In 2017, several shows were canceled when the rapper again tried his hand at rehabilitation.
As reported by TMZ, his last stint was back in 2019, where he tried rehab after a year-long sentence for tax evasion.
After that event, Pat Gallo, his manager stated –
“It is important right now that he take some time off to focus on his health so that he can be a better father, friend and entertainer…”
DMX had this to say during a Las Vegas show shortly after completing his 2019 rehabilitation –
“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.”
As spoken from his own mouth, DMX claims he has bipolar disorder and has had an addiction to crack cocaine for a time now. Starting his drug habit at the tender age of 14, it’s always haunted him.
