Prayer vigil planned for stricken rapper DMX
WHITE PLAINS, NY (AP) — A prayer vigil is planned outside the suburban New York hospital where rapper DMX remains on life support following a heart attack.
The family of the rapper says in an email that the vigil will be held outside White Plains Hospital at 5 p.m. Monday.
The family says DMX remains in a coma and is on a ventilator as of Sunday evening.
His longtime New York-based lawyer, Murray Richman, said the rapper was admitted to the intensive care unit but said he could not confirm reports that the artist overdosed on drugs.
DMX made a splash in rap music in 1998 with his first studio album “It’s Dark and Hell is Hot,” which debuted No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
