DMX has been in hospital since last Friday, and has been unresponsive ever since.
His lawyer confirmed that he suffered a heart attack late last Friday evening. It also came out that the heart attack might have been the consequence of a drug overdose.
Sources close to his family told the media that he is in a “vegetative” state ever since his arrival at the hospital. Furthermore, they mentioned that DMX also suffered “lung and brain” damage.
His former manager, Nakia Walker said that DMX has been “in the same condition” during the weekend.
Walker also added, [he is] in a vegetative state, [with] lung and brain failure and no brain activity,”. “We are just praying and waiting. Praying and waiting” as reported by BuzzFeed News.
DMX, unfortunately, has been struggling with drug abuse for most of his career. In 2019, he also checked himself into rehab.
