Rapper DMX Has Passed

Posted by: Kelsey Sousa

On Friday April 2nd DMX suffered a drug overdose and was taken to the hospital where the prognosis was not good. 

According to sources the OD occurred at the rapper’s home around 11:00 PM which triggered a heart attack. DMX was then rushed to a hospital in White Plains, New York where he was in the critical care unit. Sources say that doctors have advised he may not make it as he is in a “vegetative state”. 

Sadly this is not the first instance in which the rapper has struggled with substance abuse. DMX has been to rehab several times, the most recent occurred in 2019 after he had completed a 12-month sentence for tax evasion. During that time the rapper checked himself into rehab in fear that he might relapse due to the overwhelming feeling of temptation. 

Following rehab in December of 2019 DMX made his return at the Hakkassan in Las Vegas. At this time it was apparent the rapper was in better spirits as he took photos with fans and expressed his vulnerability in saying

“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.” 

The rapper’s last performance was in July of 2020 when he faced Snoop Dogg in a Verzuz battle. This battle received more than 500K viewers, proving that DMX still had the ability to bring in an audience. 

On Friday April 9th DMX passed away. He leaves behind his family, 15 children and loving fans from all over the world. Rest in Paradise DMX.
