Rapper Who Sang About Killing Cops Has Life Saved — By Cops
Rapper DMX, who once rapped that he “hate[s] cops” and sang about murdering them, was revived by police officers in New York on Monday after falling unconscious due to a suspected drug overdose.
According to TMZ, DMX, real name Earl Simmons, was found unconscious in a parking lot at a Ramada Inn in Yonkers, New York, Monday evening. The rapper reportedly had no pulse and was not breathing, and police immediately began administering CPR.
The rapper reportedly began breathing again after about a minute of CPR. When a witness told police on scene that DMX had ingested an unidentified powder prior to collapsing, they gave him the drug overdose antidote Narcan. The rapper reportedly became semi-conscious and was taken to a hospital for further treatment.
TMZ reported that DMX is now in stable condition at the hospital and no criminal charges were expected to be filed.
