Reports stating DMX is currently in grave condition after overdosing Friday (April 2) night have set social media ablaze with well-wishes. The enormous outpouring of love and concern for X, born Earl Simmons, is certainly justified. He’s one of the most iconic rappers hip hop has ever seen, delivering consecutive chart-topping albums in the latter half of the nineties and early 2000s.
Earlier this morning, Swizz Beatz shared a cryptic post of a sunset on Instagram. Ja Rule took to Twitter where he said “Prayers up for my brother DMX” with several praying hands emojis. Missy Elliott did the same: “Prayers for DMX and his family,” she tweeted.
Killer Mike tweeted “May God Bless the Dog (DMX). Praying for him as I have just heard the horrible news.” Viola Davis shared her sentiments, as well as Gabrielle Union and Rick Ross.
TMZ’s original report states the Ruff Ryders rapper has “some brain activity” but he’s in a “vegetative state” after suffering a heart attack. X is in the critical care unit inside of a hospital in White Plains, NY.
