World-famous American rapper, DMX, has landed in hospital.

The entertainer suffered from a drug overdose on Friday night and is currently in critical condition in the hospital. Sources close to the rapper told TMZ that the overdose occurred at his home at around 11 PM and it triggered a heart attack.

DMX was rushed to a hospital in White Plains, New York and is in the critical care unit. 

While some sources state that the rap artiste has ‘some brain activity,’ others say he is in a ‘vegetative state’ and doctors have cautioned that he may not make it.

Years ago, DMX, who was the cornerstone of the Ruff Ryders label, battled substance abuse and has been to rehab several times. His last rehab stint was in 2019 after he completed a 12-month sentence for tax evasion.

At the time, he hadn’t relapsed as he checked himself into rehab out of fear that he might again, as he felt tempted to use drugs.

DMX made his return to the stage following rehab in December 2019 when he hit Hakkassan in Las Vegas, chatting it up and taking photos with fans before he hit the stage.

During the Vegas show, he took a moment to tell fans, “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.”

The last time he performed was in July 2020, when DMX faced off with Snoop Dogg in a Verzuz battle, which saw more than 500,000 viewers tune in, proving he still had an incredible ability to thrill an audience.
