With DMX battling for his life after suffering a heart attack as a result of an overdose, the rapper’s family has issued a formal statement.
Their words come as fans and contemporaries clamor for definitive word about the star’s condition after his attorney claimed he was taken off life support and breathing on his own — only to recant the comment citing the fact he was given the wrong information.
In reality, sources say DMX currently still has little brain function and is not responsive.
