Rapper DMX remains in the ICU following a heart attack over the weekend and several of his children have rushed to his sickbed.
According to the latest TMZ report about the rapper, a few of X’s kids arrived at the White Plains hospital where their father is staying and will be permitted to see him one at a time due to the medical center’s COVID-19 regulations. It’s not clear how many of his children are waiting to see him, but they will join X’s mom, Arnett Simmons, and fiancée, Desiree Lindstrom, who have reportedy been by his side since the incident.
As previously reported by REVOLT, a prayer vigil is set to take place outside of the hospital today (April 5). It is said to be a joint effort between the family and the Ruff Ryders to the Rescue Foundation.
News of DMX’s hospitalization shocked fans who woke up early Saturday morning (April 3) to learn that he suffered from a drug overdose that resulted in a heart attack. Social media feeds were filled with posts from supporters, peers and members of the hip hop industry. The tributes honored the rapper’s contribution to rap music and expressed his desires to see him overcome this tragic obstacle.
In person, fans blared his music all weekend. Additionally, a crew of bike riders pulled up to the hospital and played X’s “Where The Hood At?” in hopes to show their support of the rapper.
“The Simmons Family appreciates the overwhelming outpouring of heartfelt love, encouragement, support and prayers for Earl,” DMX’s family said in a statement to TMZ. “Earl is someone whose life and music have been a source of inspiration and strength to so many people around the world. It is reassuring to see his fans return that same passion and energy to him during his time of need.”
Praying hard for DMX.
