Rapper DMX was rushed to the hospital on April 2. He suffered a a heart attack at his home that may have resulted from a drug overdose. His manager, Steve Rifkind, told NBC News, that the rapper's condition has not improved; he is still in coma and life support.
"DMX is currently on life support and in a coma. There are multiple people with inaccurate information about his well-being and it is not helpful and productive," Rifkind told NBC News Tuesday night. "Tomorrow he will undergo further tests on his brain function and his family will determine what's best from there.".
"We appreciate your prayers and support," Rifkind added. A vigil was held Monday outside the White Plains, New York hospital where DMX is being treated.
DMX claimed to be a Christian and he used to read the Bible every day. He is currently a transitional deacon in the Christian Church and aspires to become ordained as a pastor. DMX also revealed that he received his calling to be a pastor via his first sermon in the church in 2012. "That's gonna be like incredible for me and I hope it'll be incredible for the congregation of that church," adding, "I hope I'm able to reach somebody you know and touch somebody and bring them closer to the Lord."
He confessed that he came to know Jesus while he was serving a sentence in prison: "I came here to meet somebody...Don't know who it was, but I'll know when I see him. And I came here to give him a message. And that message is Jesus loves them." He even promised that he will release a Gospel music album one day.
