Eminem Reacts To DMX News


DMX is one of the most legendary rappers of the 90s and 2000s. This weekend, the rapper’s family confirmed in a statement that the “Where The Hood At” artist, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was in a “vegetative state” following a drug overdose. Conflicting reports stated that he was taken off of life support and was breathing on his own, but those were later revealed to be false through a statement by DMX’s manager.

“Prayers out 2 @DMX & his family!! True legend!! Pullin 4 u please stay strong,” said Eminem on Saturday. 

Eminem’s career has coincided with DMX’s on multiple occasions. While they were rumored to have beef at some times, they were generally amicable throughout their respective runs, respecting one another from afar. Eminem actually presented an award to DMX at the 1999 Source Awards in a moment that has been remembered this weekend on social media as fans continue to send love to DMX and his family.
