DMX

Rapper DMX is recovering at home after he was found "unresponsive" in a Yonkers hotel parking lot.

PIX 11 reports the 45-year-old rap artist, whose real name is Earl Simmons, wasn't breathing when paramedics found him in the parking lot of a Ramada Inn on Monday.

Emergency responders resuscitated Simmons and rushed him to an area hospital.

He was released Tuesday morning. Reporters are presently camped outside his Mount Kisco home.

    DMX (new entry) just made the Celebrity Death Pool of 2016!

  • mela.reign77

    I read somewhere else that he suffered a asthma attack. He's been suffering with asthma for a while now. Whatever the cause I pray that he deals with his demons, begin the healing process and get his life on track. Never seen someone with so much potential just through it away like that.

  • hotntot95

    Earl told y'all the luminatti was coming for him ...this is sad tho.

  • Fendi

    SR:

    I just saw on Twitter that a 23 yo Black Lives Matter activist reportedly committed suicide on the steps of the Ohio statehouse. He reportedly posted a suicide note on FB, and said the demons won... But not before he urinated on the steps.

    Strange report. I'm not sure I believe it.

    When I say that my summer jam!!! Being at a party when that came on...just hype! #goodmemories

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    It's true. Read about it on the NY Daily News site

  • Fendi

    I'm not saying I don't believe he is dead, but I question the events happening as reported.

    The other BLM members should be very cautious at this time.

  • Finding Forever…

    THAT'S A BAD PICTURE OF HIM & NOT IN A GOOD WAY...MY UNCLE HAS HAD A MANY STORY ON HIM & HOW DOWN TO EARTH HE IS (WHILE COMING ACROSS HIM IN BALTIMORE), BUT OF COURSE HE WOULD SAY THIS WHEN YOU HAVE THINGS IN COMMON BESIDES A PENIS, LOL...DO FOR THE KIDS & GET IT TOGETHER, THIS IS WHO YOU LEAVE TO HURT.

  • Fendi

    I dropped off a couple "packages" under the Morning Wood post, if anyone cares. ??

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Okay. Either way it's sad. He's a very young man who seemed to be doing great work for the Black community.

  • Angela

    Hurt people hurt people. He has had a million and one chances to get help and he refuses to change yet he keeps hurting his million and one kids. I do not feel sorry for him. He wants to smoke rocks and does not care about not one thing but a rock a pipe and a BIC.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Noooooooo.

    I used to love this man. He was a beast lyrically.
    Get help man.

  • Finding Forever…

    Wonder how Mrs. Tashera Simmons is doing now? That episode of Fix My Life & that son...the tears...LORD ADDICTION, that mess will HURT those NOT on the product worst than the ADDICT...LIVED IT & SEEN IT!

  • Fendi

    These devils love breaking a young Black person's spirit, particularly that of a young Black man. BW support BM, but the support isn't reciprocal. BM will learn the hard way that when they forsake BW, don't expect to prosper. (Not saying the latter applies to him, but it applies to some.)

  • Too Many Colors

    Ruff Ryders was a movement musically

  • Canary Red™

    I thought the same thing. In my First Responders class the Captain said DO NOT perform CPR if you DO NOT have your CPR Mask, and he advised us that when he is off duty he will not get involved, and advised us not to either. I looked at him like he was crazy, and he felt it - talking about 'hey its your own discretion, but I do not and will not', he said he just walks by...smh.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    P-R-E-A-C-H!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let the hip hop church say, AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    You should report him! I would! That defeats the whole purpose of the Innocent Bystanders Law (I think that's what it's called).

    Mines told us that it's a personal decision, but I carry my lil blue mouth thingie in my bag :yes:

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    YES! :woot:

    Tashera is in the cut with her fur on chillin waiting for Dark Man X to take her back. SMH. And Deb Gotti is with her.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    They were EVERYWHERE! Couldn't turn on the radio and not hear a RR song.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    I was a BIG TIME Ruff Ryders fan, ummmkay. Not only the Ruff Ryders together, but even the individual artists were beasts. Still rock with my LOX to this day.

    The new Onyx + Pearl toys for couples in a long-distance relationship.

    While most people who try and keep their relationship afloat from afar have to rely on phone sex or over Skype and Facetime, the toys from brand Kiiroo are allowing people to connect with one another from afar.
    Literally.

    Note: This is going to get a little graphic, so if you’re the sensitive “I wish MN would write about sex in a different way” type I see from time to time, then this story is not for you.

    Anywho, the product, which makes its debut in the BBC III documentary The Virtual Reality Virgin,comes with a rectangular box and a dildo. The woman takes the dildo, and her partner takes the box. He inserts his penis into it (the box is supposed to act as your vagina), and the woman inserts the dildo into her vagina. When you ride the dildo, the man can feel the pulsating sensations through the expanding hole in the rectangular box. The man can stroke the top of the box to make the corresponding dildo vibrate inside of you. Freaky, right? (Pun absolutely intended.) For those in same-sex relationships, they have similar toys that do the same thing. While it may not be skin-to-skin sex, it’s a good option, especially since you weren’t having any skin-to-skin sex with your partner anyway.

    Because the toys come as a pair, they cost a pretty penny. Specifically, $369. However, when it comes to finding a way to make sex enjoyable as a couple in a long-distance relationship, this product definitely seems to do the trick. Therefore, it just might be worth it.

  • Gina

    DMX is one the most talented rappers ever! These rappers today can't match his lyrical skills, he's a real legend in the rap game and I would hate to see him go out in an undignified way. DMX is also a God fearing man and I believe that is what has kept him alive this long. Please get some help X we don't have many real rappers or artists left. You're one of a kind and it would really hurt us to lose you..I'm praying for you!

    Initially, Harvey's incompetent, leather-faced @$$ reported that DMX had an asthma attack. I said, "it probably was a crack attack." The website removed my comment, only to turn around and post an article claiming a source told them DMX's medical crisis may have been drug-related.

  • Kee

    "Please visit other blogs for updates on this story." ? ? The shade is real. Hell, at some point, all incurable junkies get rushed to the hospital. I'm only interested in a post that documents him living clean and sober for 2 years.

  • 1/8

    OMG! X is only 45?! D@mn! ?

  • Li

    He should be thankful for the police and EMT. They didn't have to resuscitate his ar se.

  • Li

    If he's smoking (whatever) it can agitate asthma, if he has it.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Addiction what a sad thing to see he's blessed to be here still..

  • SG

    He looks really bad.

  • Meme81

    I knew something was going to happen when I saw him in that Iyanla episode. He couldn't complete one sentence or sit still the whole time.

  • jussaying

    This is so sad. He's struggled so long with addiction. He is one of my favorite rappers. Such diversity in his catalog, realness, and a unique delivery. I really hope he gets the help he needs to find peace. Hang in there X. Either way, you've made a mark on the industry that can never be marred.

  • AnonymousRose

    Our people are really going thru it, we need to help each other. So sad other rappers won't even step in to help him, no damn unity amongst our people. Everybody want to out shine the next man, so sad the state black people in........

    This was another BS TMZ click bait article. I've never heard of someone with no pulse, not breathing, and in critical condition, yet he's released from the hospital the next morning.

    They've been doing that a lot, lately.

  • leapyearpisces

    Hey Jenie. I get it. I had the pleasure of hanging out with DMX around 1998, he and Mary came to Charlotte for a concert, and my neighbor who I happened to get cool with (I babysat her daughter alot) was childhood friends with X. Long story short, the short period I was around him, I remember him being a VERY kind soul, somewhat the opposite if his rap persona, and he was VERY, VERY passionate about GOD. It was something very different about his spirit, and at 22 years of age I couldn't put a name on it, but now I can say without a doubt, this man operates on a higher level of consciousness than the average human being, and I find with them types this world can wreck havoc on their pysche, hence the drug usage, etc. with those types, also talented as he is, after meeting him I knew THE LAST PLACE he needed to be was in the entertainment industry. The entertainment industry eat those types up. Believe me when I say that DMX needs to be in a pulpit and not the industry, and Satan knows this, and he is trying to devour him before this man can get right and become one of the fiercest warriors for GOD the world has ever seen. Real talk, I am telling no lies.

    This man has been fighting demons for years, even before we knew who DMX was. We are not exempt from the possibility of going down this same road.......as we do NOT know what the future holds. I have seen the strongest people fall down this path, so never say never. I pray that someone can help him and I don't mean Iyanla.

    LOL! That's what he told us, because we started mumbling like "is he crazy or what'. But he was adamant its policy that he doesn't have to due to liability issues if he is not on duty.

    In the late 80s, I was at a friend's house when some dudes showed at an adjacent apartment and practically kicked the door in. When an old lady answered the door, they started cursing her out and threatening to kick her @$$! When I asked my friend to call the cops, he said, "that b!tch is a crackhead and I'm not getting involved in her drama!" The woman appeared to be in her 70s, and was on crack! That shit blew my mind!

  • ebonics

    Thats so true, and we dont know what demons he faces in the industry. The top people that run the industry find your "drug" of choice whether it be sex, alcohol, crack/heroin etc and they give it to them in heaps. Once you get in its hard to get out. DMX knows the lord too and they know that so they come at him stronger/harder. The man needs prayer for sure, and real help.

  • ebonics

    Soo sad, poor guy. I know im late but I watched the Amy Winehouse documentary last night, and maaan that ish was sooo sad. It really showed how the industry will take you on a high and spit you out. All the girl needed was someone to tell her the truth and to help her get away from the drugs and alcohol. Her father was a pos to the fullest and Blake brought in the drugs that ruined her. Its sad that these musicians fall down so hard and when they are at their lowest noone seems to care or try to help esp their so called friends in the industry. All in all what they really need is some GOD in their life, some real love. Amy was such a hurting soul and it showed thru her lyrics. True talent taken too fast, and DMX is headed down the same path addicted and he cant break free. I pray for him to get better, and really get away from all the darkness, drugs, etc in his life before its too late.

  • ebonics

    He is a God fearing man, and I believe thats why the demons come at him harder! The industry ruined him, took him on a high then chewed him up and spit him out. I hate how they always try to portray him as a drug addicted loser instead of trying to help him. Its sad, and goes to show sometimes its better to NOT get the fame.

  • God’s child to the end

    Suffering asthma.....suffering soul! Both can kill.

  • ebonics

    Fa real, back when hip-hop was REALLY hip-hop not hip-pop! These so called rappers today would have been booed off stage if they tried to come with their weak lyrics and tight nut hugger jeans in the 90s when Big L, Pun, Onyx, Pete Rock & CL, etc were doin their thang. Its really sad how fast rap music has went down the drain. Feels like just yesterday you could turn on the radio and hear some goood music. Those days are over. Homo emotional thugs are killin the game lol.. and not in a good way!

  • ebonics

    Wow thats great to hear! Its so true too the ones that know GOD get attacked harder by the demons on a daily basis. I pray he can break free of the chains that have him bound up. We all get attacked daily by demons and its our choice if we let them win or lose, but it just seems if your in the industry they come at you 100x harder, esp if you have a relationship with the almighty father.

  • mzwhang90210

    I can appreciate your sentiments but addiction is a helluva pull. Oftentimes Jesus Christ Himself couldn't stop an addict from chasing that next drink/high. Addicts have to WANT to quit...no manner of help or aid will work until THEY are ready for the help.
