Last night, it was reported that DMX was in the hospital recovering after allegedly suffering a major asthma attack.

Well, according to other reports he was actually rushed to the hospital for a suspected overdose.

via TMZ:

Yonkers cops responded to a call about an unconscious male at a Ramada Inn just after 6 PM. We’re told when cops arrived DMX was on the ground in the parking lot next to a parked car. Cops quickly determined he was lifeless, not breathing with no pulse and immediately began CPR.

After a minute of CPR X’s pulse came back.  

A witness on scene told cops DMX had ingested some sort of powder before lapsing into unconsciousness. Cops gave him Narcan, an antidote to narcotic ODs. DMX became “semi-conscious” and was taken to the hospital.

We’re told DMX appears to be in stable condition and at this time, no criminal charges are expected.

Still, DMX says that he didn’t take any powder or drugs. He says all he remembers is having shortness of breath after suffering bronchitis for a couple of days.

A family member says X asked for his inhaler (for asthma) right before he fell unconscious. They were not able to get it to him in time.
