Cyclists pay tribute to sick rapper DMX outside New York hospital


Fans of rapper DMX demonstrated Sunday in front of White Plains Hospital in Westchester, where the 50-year-old rapper remains on life support after an overdose and heart attack.

Supporters of rapper “X Gon ‘Give It to Ya,” who were riding motorcycles and sports apparel from their “Ruff Ryders” collective, gathered outside the hospital to offer their support, according to video posted on Twitter by Fox 5 reporter Lisa Evers.

The Yonkers native, whose real name is Earl Simmons, overdosed on Friday night at 11 p.m., TMZ reported. Simmons later had a heart attack and has not responded and is in a “vegetative state,” according to reports.

A family member told TMZ that paramedics attempted to resuscitate Simmons for 30 minutes and that the lack of oxygen at the time severely depleted his brain function.

DMX attorney Murray Richman told The Post on Saturday that he could not confirm the overdose, but said, “It doesn’t look good.”

The rapper is surrounded by friends and family, Richman said.

“A lot of people are gathering at the hospital,” he said.
