DMX is in a ‘vegetative state’ after overdose, family asking for prayers

DMX’s family is asking for prayers as the famed rapper is in a “vegetative state” following a drug overdose and heart attack last week.

“We ask that you please keep Earl/DMX and us in your thoughts, wishes, and prayers as well as respect our privacy as we face these challenges,” the family of the rapper (born Earl Simmons) wrote in a statement to People.

Bikers sporting gear from his “Ruff Ryders” collective have gathered around White Plains Hospital in Westchester, where the 50-year-old “X Gon’ Give It to Ya” rapper remains on life support, and plan to hold a prayer vigil Monday.

DMX is currently in a “vegetative state,” his manager, Nakia Walker, told the New York Times on Sunday.

“We’re just praying,” Walker said, noting that some of his family members have been allowed to visit the Yonkers native in the hospital.
