The rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, has reportedly been unresponsive and in a “vegetative state” since he suffered an overdose on Friday and then had a heart attack, TMZ said.
DMX’s attorney Murray Richman told the New York Post on Saturday that “it does not look good”, but did not confirm the overdose.
Prior to that, a family member told TMZ that paramedics had tried to resuscitate Simmons for 30 minutes, which depleted his brain function due to the lack of oxygen.
