Iconic rapper/actor DMX has passed away after suffering a heart attack, stemming from an alleged overdose, less than a week ago.
For the last several days, many media outlets were publishing conflicting stories about DMX’s condition. Some were prematurely delivering the news of his death, while others were sticking to the fact that he remained in a vegetative state.
DMX’s manager, Steve Rifkind, released a video statement a couple of days ago, giving an update on the icon’s condition. But, unfortunately, that was short-lived and the world suffered the loss of a talent that definitely changed the game of hip-hop when he rose to fame in the late 1990s.
Earl Simmons, also known as the gruff-voiced, Grammy-nominated rapper DMX, passed away this Friday (04/09) at the tender age of 50. DMX, best known for hits like, “Up In Here” and “Ruff Ryders’ Anthem” has been survived by his fifteen children, and close family and friends.
He will truly be missed!
