Richman said the rapper suffered a heart attack at his home in White Plains at around 11 pm on Friday and was taken to a local hospital by ambulance, where he was still on a ventilator. The lawyer said that he did not know what caused the heart disease.
Richman said he has known DMX for 25 years and said Saturday night that he stayed in touch with the rapper’s family all day long. He said he knew the medical prognosis of the rapper, but declined to comment.
DMX’s real name is Earl Simmons, and in the late 1990s he made a name for himself on the rap stage with rap “Party Up” and “Get At Me Dog” songs. His first five albums are number one on the Billboard charts. The 50-year-old actor is also an actor and has appeared in many movies.
