On Friday, rapper DMX was admitted to the hospital in White Plains following a heart attack and was put on a ventilator, according to Rolling Stone.
On Sunday, a group of people from the Ruff Ryders Motorcycle Club showed up outside to show their respect and support. Their name is licensed from the hip-hop collective, but they seem to take their allegiance more seriously than a licensing fee would demand.
Fox News reporter Lisa Evers arrived on the scene to show the motorcycles pulling up and the sound of DMX’s music filling the street:
A more official vigil is being held on Monday, April 5th, at 5 pm and this will be hosted by the Ruff Ryders to the Rescue Foundation. The family shared an official statement about DMX’s condition and the planned vigil:
“On Friday night, April 2nd, 2021, our brother, son, father, and colleague DMX, birth name of Earl Simmons, was admitted to White Plains (NY) Hospital, facing serious health issues. We ask that you please keep Earl/DMX and us in your thoughts, wishes, and prayers as well as respect our privacy as we face these challenges. Thank you.”
“The Family of Earl Simmons a/k/a DMX. NOTE – The Ruff Ryders To The Rescue Foundation will have a prayer vigil outside of White Plains Hospital (41 East Post Road, White Plains NY) on Monday, April 5th, 2021 at 5 pm EST. The press is welcome. Please be respectful of the hospital and its staff. Thank you.“
The cause of DMX’s heart condition has not been confirmed by the family and on Sunday, the Associated Press reported the rapper was still in a coma and on a ventilator.
