Fans and Ruff Ryders alike gathered outside White Plains Hospital in Westchester NY where DMX is said to be on life support after a reported overdose and heart attack.

It happened late Friday night where it was first reported X was unresponsive and in a vegetative state. Word is he overdosed and it took 30 minutes for first responders to resuscitate his brain function to get severely depleted.

There were several unconfirmed reports which were later walked back including one where his attorney said he was off life support and breathing on his own which later turned out to be not true. He is now saying his prognosis does not look good.

His manager is asking for people’s prayers and in an official statement from his family, they said he does remain in ICU in critical condition and they appreciate all the love and support from his fans across the world.
