After being hospitalized in the hospital and falling into a coma on the weekend, DMX’s family told about the rapper’s condition.
The family of the 50-year-old rapper issued a brief statement on his condition and announced that a vigil will be held outside the New York hospital on Monday. He will survive a heart attack.
“Our brother, son, father, and colleague DMX (Earl Simmons), whose name was on Friday night, April 2, 2021, was taken to White Plains (NY) Hospital and faced serious health problems.” We ask you to let Piaget/DMX and us keep your thoughts, wishes and prayers and respect our privacy when facing these challenges.”
Another statement issued on Sunday afternoon stated that the rapper was still in a coma and was on a ventilator.

Simmons’ long-term lawyer, Murray Richman, said the rapper was taken to the intensive care unit of White Plains Hospital due to a cardiac arrest. Richman said he could not confirm reports of overdose of DMX at the age of 50, nor was he sure of the cause of the heart attack.
Richman told the New York Times: “He is indeed an amazing man.” “He walked into a room and illuminated the room. In front of him, he can’t help making you feel good.”
In a separate interview with PIX11 News in New York, Richman pointed out that he was “worried” about the current situation of the rapper.

A source initially reported to TMZ that DMX had a heart attack due to an overdose. However, this has not been confirmed. As we all know, the “party (join here)” rapper has previously struggled with drug abuse. The report stated that he was sentenced to one year in jail for tax evasion and completed his recovery for the last time in 2019. At the time, the rapper claimed that the time of recovery was not the result of relapse, but a preventive measure.
