Has DMX the rapper passed away?

Earl Simmons, better known as DMX, passed away at the age of 50 at White Plains Hospital with his family by his side after being put on life support for a few days, according to a statement from his family.

The Westchester County medical examiner’s office officially declared that DMX passed away in July 2021 as a result of a cocaine-induced heart attack that prevented blood flow to his brain.

According to the source, acute cocaine intoxication had “caused this chain of events,” adding that there had not been any blood flow to the brain for a while because of the cardiac arrest.
