This evening’s prayer vigil is the latest showing of love for the 50-year-old rapper. Members of the “Ruff Ryders” motorcycle crew rolled up to the hospital last night to pay tribute, and several hospital staff members held their own little vigil Sunday evening.

The Ruff Ryders first came onto the scene back in the late ’90s, when DMX put out an anthem dedicated to them.
DMX’s kids began arriving today; they were only allowed to visit their father one at a time in the ICU. His current reported condition is that he is on life support and his outlook remains grim. Desiree and DMX’s mother have been with him since the weekend.
DMX overdosed Friday night, and was hospitalized in grave condition after suffering a heart attack at his home around 11 p.m. Upon being admitted to the ICU, DMX had to be resuscitated and was put on life support. TMZ reported he was left without oxygen to his brain for nearly 30 minutes, resulting in very little brain activity.
