OT : DMX OD’s - in critical condition 

Post#1 » by Ramed Nazored » Sat Apr 3, 2021 10:59 pm

Judging from the avatars, sigs, and usernames on this board, I thought this would be of interest to some of you.

Legend and icon DMX has OD’ed and is fighting for his life. I’ve lost a lot of friends and family to overdose, and I feel deeply for his loved ones right now.

X is a special talent who put out a ton of brilliant music. I’m a hip hop head who came up in the 90’s. Guys like X helped me through a lot of tough times.
I hope he makes it through and finds the peace he deserves.

Let’s send the man our good vibes and positive energy.

The fact he's breathing on his own is huge. He should survive, but as you said, he could have substantial brain damage.

Arguably the most recognizable voice in hip hop.

Hope he's ok.

It's well known when he was 14 or 16 he was offered a blunt laced with crack.

He is important to old school values
