DMX suffered an overdose on Friday night which ultimately led to a heart attack. According to TMZ, paramedics attempted to resuscitate him and while they were eventually successful, the lack of oxygen to his brain caused severe damage, leaving him in a vegetative state. Now, the rapper is in the ICU at a hospital in New York and he is trying his best to fight and stay alive. It is extremely sad news that has led to an outpouring of support amongst his fans and peers.
