DMX, rapper and actor, dies at 50 1


DMX, a rapper known as much for his troubles as his music, has died, his family announced in a statement. He was 50.
"We are deeply saddened to announce today that our loved one, DMX, birth name of Earl Simmons, passed away at 50-years-old at White Plains Hospital with his family by his side after being placed on life support for the past few days," family's statement read in part.
The artist had been hospitalized since last week when he suffered a heart attack at his home in New York, according to his longtime attorney, Murray Richman.
DMX (Dark Man X) began rapping in the early 1990s and released his debut album, "It's Dark and Hell Is Hot," in 1998.
With the deaths of fellow rappers The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur before he burst on the scene, DMX became one of the reigning stars of hardcore hip hop and was the premier artist signed to the Ruffhouse Records label.
His single, "Ruff Ryders Anthem," helped to seal his critical and commercial success.

      @valglass12 I could respond all day and it wouldn’t suddenly become valid or even right. And DMX never said to rob anyone or hurt innocent. Besides not too many young kids are even under his influence.

      But anyway pal nothing was burnt anything down by me and I didn’t hurt anyone. Now just go back to FOX or 4chan or whatever racists like you do for fun.

      The devil is in me. And I don’t care. He killed him. Attack me with your words. I don’t care. I’m not my Christian self. I feel odd towards the death, nothing. I don’t feel sad. I’m not my Christian self right now. Satan has me. Inside me. Everything is falling apart. I, the devil inside want to hurt my psychiatrist. So why would I be sad about death. Death is what I want. I want to be like DMX, dead. Come at me if you want, I want to be verbally attacked. I like it. I might not respond. Nothing matters.

  16. Actually wept after I heard the news. His spiritual struggles that came through his music were so relatable to me, and helped me face my struggles as a young man. RIP My Brother!

  17. R.I.P DMX you are a real legend. Now you’re in the heavens with God you don’t have to suffer anymore, but you will be missed

    “They” always have to air your dirt while claiming to honor you. RIP DMX! One of the few emcees that didn’t brag about material things.
