DMX in Critical Condition

2021-04-03 by Trundle | 72 Comments
Earl Simmons, better known as DMX, overdosed alone in his home on Friday night, resulting in a heart attack.

Doctors have told his family that he may not survive, but in a statement from his representatives, DMX is "breathing on his own and not currently in need of life support."

Damn I hope DMX pulls through! Dude was a huge part of my childhood and has always been a very underrated artist in my eyes. Hope he makes it and gets his demons in check.

DMX kinda reminds me of Scott Weiland. Two talented guys, with a lot of sucess in their early careers, but due to addiction they both became more known for their problems than music made.

Scott is already 6-feet under, DMX is on his way.

”He would rap, and I would do the beatbox,” DMX said. “I loved this guy like an older brother.”

One night after the duo “did a robbery one night… it was his birthday and we came back and split the money. I said, ‘Here you go, go get something nice for your birthday.’ So he came back with a blunt rolled up, and I’m counting the money, he pass[ed] the blunt.”

Holding back tears, he continued, “I hit the blunt and … I was no longer focused on the money. I’ve never felt like this, it just f–ked me up. I later found out that he laced the blunt with crack. Why would you do that to a child? He knew I looked up to him. Why would you do that to somebody who looks up to you? A monster was born. I wouldn’t do that to my worst enemy. Especially to someone that you supposedly love.”

DMX has had a really tragic life starting from his childhood, he was basically never a child to begin with. Unfortunately he has been plagued by addiction problems for years. Looks well and healthy, then goes back to the dark side every time unfortunately. Really a one of a kind rapper. This stuff makes me think of his song Slippin.

@grungil yeah but DMX acknowledges he had a problem, Scott Weiland pretended he was sober for years and lived in denial until he died.

Never knew about him experiencing crack first unexpectedly through a laced blunt. I had that experience with wet. That's a pretty shitty way to get introduced to a new drug for sure

If he’s breathing on his own, I’d say he’ll get better. My dad was on life support last year and it was a big deal to get him breathing on his own.

"If he’s breathing on his own, I’d say he’ll get better. My dad was on life support last year and it was a big deal to get him breathing on his own."

Problem is his brain didn't get enough oxygen when he was brought to the hospital and it looks like he might be brain dead.

Hate to see this about anyone. Addiction is a horrible thing and no one should have to suffer through it. I had a friend, he was much older than me, that couldn't seem to kick the habit of popping pain pills. He reached out to me on FB messenger occasionally just discussing life and his depression. I had a missed call in my notifications the morning I found out he had overdosed. He literally tried to reach out mere hours before he died. I wish I had answered the phone.

aren't you pretty much dead though if your brain dies. I mean technically you aren't dead as far as your body, but the person you were dies.

update: he is still not confirmed to be dead. No doctor has said that he's dead, or brain dead, or anything of the sort -- they're doing tests and analyzing the progress.


“Everybody please stop with posting these rumors, DMX is still alive,” he said in a video posted to his Instagram page. “Yes, he is on life support, but please, it’s not helping anybody by having them see these false rumors. Let the family relax for a night, you will be hearing a statement from the family some time tomorrow. I’ve been with DMX for the past three years, so the only thing I ask is just stop with the rumors. He is still alive and he is on life support. Thank you.”
