Rapper DMX is reportedly in a critical condition after suffering a heart attack, according to a report in TMZ.

TMZ reports that DMX, real name Earl Simmons, had a drug overdose on Friday night around 11 p.m. in his home in New York that triggered a heart attack. He was transferred to a hospital in White Plains, New York and is in the critical care unit.

TMZ also spoke with sources who said he has “some brain activity” while another said he is in a “vegetative state.” DMX is 50 years old.

A representative for DMX did not immediately return TheWrap’s request for comment.

Other musicians and rappers however on Saturday morning responded to the grim news by sharing their prayers and support, including Missy Elliott and Ja Rule.

DMX in 2019 made his return to the stage in Las Vegas in December 2019 following a rehab stint and told the crowd, “When you fall down, get back up, everyone here has been through some s**t and you never know what God is willing to do for you until you need him to do something for you.”
