Rap legend DMX Taken Off Life Support After Heart Attack, Dead At 50



Rap legend DMX, known for being a pinnacle in the ’90s and 2000s hip-hop scene, died on Friday at age 50, according to a statement from his family given to The Associated Press.

The rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was rushed to a hospital in White Plains, New York on April 2 after suffering a heart attack.

On April 3, the rapper’s longtime New York-based lawyer Murray Richman told The Associated Press the hip-hop star was on life support but said he could not confirm reports that DMX overdosed on drugs and was not sure what caused the heart attack.

The Ruff Ryders rapper has battled with drug addiction in the past and was last in rehab in 2019 after spending a year in prison for tax evasion, which the IRS had been pursuing him for since 2005.
