BREAKING: Rapper Actor DMX Dies At Age 50!

The family was holding out for a miracle but it never came.

We are truly sad to report that rapper, actor DMX dies at the age of only 50-years-old. Read on… reports that his family announced in a statement that rapper DMX has died.

The artist had been hospitalized since last week when he suffered a heart attack at his home in New York, according to his longtime attorney, Murray Richman.

A rep for his family released this statement:

We are deeply saddened to announce today that our loved one, DMX, birth name of Earl Simmons, passed away at 50-years-old at White Plains Hospital with his family by his side after being placed on life support for the past few days.

He loved his family with all of his heart and we cherish the times we spent with him. Earl’s music inspired countless fans across the world and his iconic legacy will live on forever. We appreciate all of the love and support during this incredibly difficult time. Please respect our privacy as we grieve the loss of our brother, father, uncle and the man the world knew as DMX. We will share information about his memorial service once details are finalized.

The announcement came shortly after news broke that his brain function never returned, and by Thursday his organs began failing while he remained on life support in a New York hospital.

DMX’s health is rapidly deteriorating as he remains on life support, with not much more doctors can do … and he’s experiencing significant organ failure.

By Friday morning, X’s “organs are failing by the minute” … a sign, under the circumstances, indicating the end of life.

We’re told friends and family have been told to fly in immediately to be with DMX and his loved ones.

Hours before he was taken off life support, Twitter was prematurely saying RIP DMX after someone posted the hashtag. So X manager Steve Rifkind asked people to stop spreading fake news.

DMX Career History:

X became the top dawg in hardcore hip hop back in 98 when he dropped his Ruff Ryders debut studio album “It’s Dark and Hell is Hot” to critical and mainstream acclaim. From there DMX career skyrocketed. His music was notorious with his dawg bark and growl. There will NEVER be another X.

RIP DMX “Dawg for Life”
