His manager clarified that the legendary rapper is on life support after overdosing on drugs, but he’s still very much alive.

This right here is why you have to be careful about what kind of information you spread on the internet when it comes to people dying.

Twitter was on fire Thursday night with the rumor that DMX had passed onto the other side after overdosing. Clearly, it’s not true.

Unfortunately, the situation still sounds incredibly grave, and the family is making a statement Friday. It sounds like things aren’t trending in the direction we’d all hoped for.

Let’s hope DMX is able to bounce back. The man is a living legend, and you just hate to see people meet an unfortunate end.
