DMX has received a ton of support from fans and fellow rappers over the past week following the news that he suffered a heart attack following an overdose in New York. Since that time, X has been in the hospital where he has very little brain function due to the lack of oxygen sustained while in Cardiac Arrest. His family has been able to be at his side throughout all of this, and they have been holding out hope while X has been battling for his life.
On Wednesday, DMX went through a wide variety of tests to check his brain activity and whether or not his condition has improved. According to TMZ, X has not regained any brain function and the outlook remains grim. In fact, the publication is saying that his family could be met with some very difficult decisions over the coming days.
