DMX, an American hip hop star, was rushed to a New York hospital on Friday, April 2, after apparently suffering a heroin overdose that resulted in a heart attack.

According to sources loyal to the musician, the incident happened at his home about 11 p.m.

The 50-year-old New York musician, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was admitted to White Plains Hospital in New York and is still in critical condition.

 

The report also said he has “some brain activity” with one source stating that he’s in a “vegetative state” and doctors have cautioned he may not make it.

A family member of the rapper told the publication that paramedics tried resuscitating him for 30 minutes, and during that time he was deprived of oxygen.
