DMX has reportedly struggled with drug addiction throughout his adult life – and has openly addressed the issues within his songs.

In 2016 Page Six reported DMX stopped breathing and had no pulse after suffering a drug overdose in a Westchester, New York parking lot.

Luckily, a medic on hand administered Narcan, an anti-opioid used to reverse the effects of a heroin overdose, according to police.

The rapper became “semiconscious” and was rushed to a nearby hospital where he received treatment. 

This is a breaking story. More to come.
