DMX: Rapper Hospitalized After Being Found Unconscious in Yonkers, NY, Parking Lot

DMX is out of the hospital and recovering after he collapsed in a New York hotel parking lot on Tuesday.

The 45-year-old rapper — whose real name is Earl Simmons — was rushed to a local hospital after someone found his seemingly lifeless body outside of a Ramada Inn and called 911.

First responders gave him CPR and oxygen when they arrived on the scene.

He he had an asthma attack, his lawyer Murray Richman said.

That is the latest, but earlier TMZ reported it was a drug overdose:

Yonkers cops responded to a call about an unconscious male at a Ramada Inn just after 6 PM. We’re told when cops arrived DMX was on the ground in the parking lot next to a parked car. Cops quickly determined he was lifeless, not breathing with no pulse and immediately began CPR.

After a minute of CPR X’s pulse came back.

A witness on scene told cops DMX had ingested some sort of powder before lapsing into unconsciousness. Cops gave him Narcan, an antidote to narcotic ODs. DMX became “semi-conscious” and was taken to the hospital.

Initially, DMX’s camp reported the It’s Dark & Hell Is Hot rapper suffered a massive asthma attack, but cops maintain that it was an overdose.

DMX is set to hit the festival circuit this spring; we wish him a full and speedy recovery.

It seems like X’s attorney might be trying to save face….
