People around the world are continuously offering prayers and positive thoughts for Earl Simmons. The Hip Hop superstar better known as DMX was hospitalized after apparently suffering a drug overdose on April 2.
According to TMZ, DMX’s manager confirmed that the 50-year-old rapper/actor is still in a coma and on life support at a New York medical facility. The website reports:
