DMX almost lost his life on Monday, January 8, according to TMZ.
Police were called to a Ramada Inn in Yonkers, New York when the 45-year old rapper reportedly stopped breathing and had no pulse. Cops were able to bring his pulse back after a minute of CPR.
He was then given Narcan, a drug used for the complete or partial reversal of opioid overdose, including respiratory depression. X became semi-conscious and was taken to a hospital where he is listed in stable condition.
Dark Man's camp says he suffered an asthma attack, but a witness told police that he had ingested "some sort of powder" before losing consciousness.
X, real name Earl Simmons, has had a long battle with drug addiction.
