On Saturday, it was reported that DMX was in "grave condition" after he experienced an overdose and a heart attack on Friday night and was rushed to a hospital in White Plains, New York. Doctors determined that DMX's reported overdose was the reason behind his heart attack. There was some confusion over the rap legend's state following this emergency situation, with one source telling TMZ that there was "some brain activity" and another saying that he was in a "vegetative state" and that doctors were worried that he wouldn't make it.
It was later reported that DMX's children were traveling to the hospital to see him as his condition remains "critical." Shortly after this news broke, his family released a statement to TMZ. They noted that it was "reassuring" to see the outpouring of support amongst DMX's fans. Their statement read, "Last night Earl 'DMX' Simmons was rushed to the hospital after collapsing at home. At this time he remains in ICU in critical condition. Earl has been a warrior his entire life. This situation represents yet another road he must conquer." They continued, "Earl is someone whose life and music have been a source of inspiration and strength to so many people around the world. It is reassuring to see his fans return that same passion and energy to him during his time of need."
