DMX believed to be in grave condition after overdose, heart attack

Hip Hop icon DMX’s life is hanging in the balance after the rapper suffered a drug overdosed Friday night.

According to TMZ, sources close to the “What’s My Name” artist claim the OD occurred at 11 p.m. Sources added that the overdose then triggered a heart attack.

DMX is currently in the critical care unit of a White Plains hospital where he reportedly is exhibiting “some brain activity.” Another source told TMZ that the artist is currently in a “vegetative state” and doctors have cautioned he may not make it.

The Ruff Ryders MC has long struggled with drug addiction, last checking into rehab October 2019.

The rapper claims his problems with addiction began when he was tricked into smoking crack at 14 — by his mentor.

“I was in Yonkers. This guy, ‘Ready Ron,’ he was like an older brother to me,” DMX told fellow hip-hop star Talib Kweli on his “People’s Party” podcast.

“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.”

“The person that I loved was a snake.”
