Bikers linked to DMX’s hip-hop collective Ruff Ryders also appeared in front of the hospital to offer their support.
After news broke that claimed he was in a “vegetative state”, DMX’s attorney has updated fans on his wellbeing, saying that he is presently breathing on his own.
Previously, DMX has been open about his use of illegal drugs and has spoken about entering rehab in 2019 after serving time in federal prison on a tax fraud conviction.
“In his ongoing commitment to putting family and sobriety first, DMX has checked himself into a rehab facility. He apologises for his cancelled shows and thanks his fans for their continued support.” said a statement at the time.
After checking out of rehab in December 2019, the rapper told fans during a concert in Las Vegas: “When you fall down, get back up. Everyone here has been through some s***, and you never know what God is willing to do for you until you need him to do something for you.”
DMX made a huge mark in rap music in 1998 with his first studio album It’s Dark and Hell is Hot, which peaked at No 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The multiplatinum-selling collection featured hits such as “Get At Me Dog”, “Ruff Ryders’ Anthem,” and “Stop Being Greedy”.
