Rapper Earl Simmons, better known as DMX, has been hospitalized in White Plains, New York, after suffering a heart attack, his attorney told CBS News. Details on what may have caused the heart attack were not provided.
Attorney Murray Richman initially said DMX had been taken off life support and was breathing on his own, but when asked later by CBS News to confirm those details, Richman said “not to my knowledge.”
DMX has been nominated for three Grammy awards over his career, receiving two nominations in 2000 and another in 2001. He’s also been nominated for several other awards, including a BET Award in 2006 for Video of the Year, an MTV Movie Award in 2002 for breakthrough male performance for “Exit Wounds,”
