Rapper DMX still alive – Manager Confirms
DMX’s administrator of three decades, Steve Rifkind, has proved to the contrary reports that the rapper is dead, ascertaining that the fifty-year-old is still on life support.
In a video uploaded on his Instagram page, Rifkind said, “Everybody, please stop posting these rumors. DMX is still alive. Yes, he is on life support, but please, it’s not helping anybody by having them see these false rumors. Let the family relax for a night.”
Rifkind substantiated that the rapper’s family will disseminate a declaration on Friday.
Rumors of DMX’s death trended on social media on Thursday night after comedian Luenell Campbell posted a message on her Instagram story which suggested that the rapper had passed away.
In the Instagram story, she wrote: “It is over. My friend is gone. Soar with the birds. Join the best that ever did it. RIP… DMX.”
Aso Naija had earlier reported that DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, had suffered from a drug overdose on April 2 and is currently in the momentous condition in the hospital, with sources who are close to the rapper saying that it accelerated a heart attack.
The rapper has not recovered any brain function nearly a week after his apparent overdose and the family may have to make the unfortunate verdict of whether or not to withdraw his life aid.
