DMX has been hospitalized following a reported drug overdose, a source close to the rapper confirmed earlier today.
According to TMZ, DMX overdosed on Friday night at his home around 11 p.m., which caused a heart attack. The 50-year-old rapper is currently in a hospital in White Plains, N.Y., and is in the critical care unit. Sources told TMZ that he has “some brain activity,” while others said that he is in a “vegetative state.”
DMX has been open about his past struggles with addiction, and has attended rehab several times. In 2019, he canceled a series of live performances and checked into rehab for substance abuse after serving a year-long jail sentence for tax fraud and evasion earlier that year.
