DMX Health Issues/Death

DMX has been frank about his crack cocaine addiction, which started when he was 14 years old after smoking a marijuana cigarette mixed with the substance. He also appears to be suffering from bipolar disorder. DMX was discovered unresponsive in a Ramada Inn parking lot in Yonkers on February 10, 2016. Before being taken to the hospital, he was resuscitated by first responders and given Narcan. While a witness said he swallowed something before collapsing, police discovered no illegal drugs on the premises. It was due to an asthma attack, according to DMX.

DMX was rushed to a hospital in White Plains, New York, at approximately 11:00 p.m. on April 2, 2021, where he was confirmed to be in critical condition after a heart attack at his home that could have been caused by an overdose. Other musicians, including Ja Rule, Chance the Rapper, Missy Elliott, and Rick Ross, as well as athletes Julian Edelman and LeBron James, have expressed their support for him, and a prayer vigil was held outside the hospital on April 5.

Murray Richman, DMX’s solicitor, said he was on life support on April 3. Richman later claimed that he was off life support and breathing on his own later that day, but he later clarified that DMX was still on life support and that he had “been given incorrect details.” The same night, TMZ, the first to post on the hospitalization, said that DMX’s brain had been deprived of oxygen for 30 minutes as paramedics tried to resuscitate him.

DMX’s former boss, Nakia Walker, revealed on April 4 that he was in a “vegetative condition” with “lung and brain failure and no current brain function.” On April 7, DMX’s manager, Steve Rifkind, announced that he was comatose and that he would be subjected to tests to ascertain his brain’s functioning, allowing his family to “determine what’s best from there.” On April 8, it was confirmed that DMX’s brain function had not improved.

His family announced his death in a statement. He had been on life support at White Plains Hospital after suffering from “a catastrophic cardiac arrest” a week earlier.

DMX Career

In 1984, DMX began his career in the music industry by beatboxing for a local rapper called Ready Ron. Following his release from jail, he started writing his own songs and performing at a local recreation center for younger children. After being imprisoned for the second time in 1988, he started to take rapping more seriously, devoting almost all of his free time to writing songs and meeting and rapping with K-Solo.

When DMX was released that summer, he started making and selling his own mixtapes, rapping over instrumentals from other songs and selling them on street corners, which helped him develop a local fan base all over New York. In 1991, The Source magazine’s Gabriel Grevenstuk praised DMX in his Unsigned Hype column, which featured unsigned hip-hop artists. Unstoppable Force and Three Little Pigs, his first demos, were captured the same year.
