As previously mentioned, on Saturday, TMZ reported that DMX is in "grave condition" after experiencing an overdose on Friday night. According to a source who is said to be close to the rapper, DMX experienced an overdose at around 11 pm local time at his home. He was subsequently rushed to a hospital in White Plains, New York and was transported to the intensive care unit. There are conflicting reports about DMX's current state following this overdose. One source told TMZ that he has "some brain activity," while another said that he is in a "vegetative state" and that doctors fear that he may not make it. At the time of the article's publication, DMX's representatives or family have released a statement about his current status.
DMX has a long history when it comes to drug addiction, finishing his last stint in rehab back in 2019. He reportedly voluntarily checked into rehab at the time as he was worried that he might relapse again. The rapper went to rehab following a 12-month stint in prison for tax evasion. Following his time in rehab, he returned to the stage in December 2019 in Las Vegas. During his concert appearance, DMX told his fans, "When you fall down, get back up, everyone here has been through some s**t and you never know what God is willing to do for you until you need him to do something for you."
