The rapper suffered a heart attack on Friday, which was triggered by a drug overdose. He was rushed to a hospital in White Plains, New York, where he has remained in a coma for the last week. Last night, there were multiple reports that DMX was taken off of life support, which were immediately refuted by his manager, Steve Rifkind. “Please stop with posting with the rumors. DMX is still alive,” he said in a video statement. The latest update from this morning regarding X’s health is not promising.
