It was revealed yesterday that Rapstar DMX had suffered a massive heart attack after an apparent drug overdose. MTO News spoke exclusively to a member of the DMX family who tells us the rapper is in an extremely serious condition and it doesn’t look like he’s going to get through.
The family member told MTO News that DMX children and other family members are expected to all gather around the rapper’s bedside and that all medical decisions about the rapper are “made as a family.”
According to MTO News, these decisions may include “pulling the plug” on the rapper – if his condition worsens.
The family member who asked to remain anonymous told MTO News that they were pessimistic about DMX’s ability to prevail.
The exact state of DMX is not known.

Initially, TMZ reported that DMX was “life sustaining” and in a “vegetative state”. Then DMX attorney Murray Richman told Pix11 News early yesterday that the rapper is getting better, particularly that he has “been taken off the life support system and is breathing on his own.”
At the time, the rapper’s fans were a little optimistic.
But late at night the news turned bad again. Later that evening, Murray Richman pulled back and told Rolling Stone that he had “received false information” and that the rapper was still life support.
The DMX attorney could not confirm whether the heart attack was drug related.
