Rapper DMX continues to be on life support and is in a vegetative state, former manager says
The rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, is still on life support and has little to no brain activity or function, his former manager told The New York Times and BuzzFeed on Sunday. Hundreds of people showed up to support DMX's family as they held a prayer vigil outside White Plains Hospital on Monday. DMX had a heart attack over the weekend and was not taken off life support despite previous reports.

This one hurt, one of the rappers that got me into rap, carried the east coast on his back for awhile, raw energy that few have these days. RIP to the legend, would nearly guarantee that whatever he OD’d on was laced with Fentanyl

My favourite DMX story is his getting signed by Def Jam in ‘97/‘98, by rapping for Lyor Cohen with his jaw wired shut, after having been badly beaten up days beforehand.

Are you mixing that up with Kanye?
"Through the Wire" is the debut single by American rapper Kanye West. West wrote and recorded the song with his jaw wired shut after a car accident in October 2002.
