Rapper Earl Simmons known professionally as DMX has died a week after suffering an overdose.

DMX had virtually no brain function after he was deprived of oxygen for nearly 30 minutes following his overdose. Unfortunately his brain function never returned, and by Thursday his organs began failing while he remained on life support in a New York hospital.

Many people in DMX’s family were at the hospital over the last week, including his mom, fiancee and many of his kids.

A rep for his family states, “We are deeply saddened to announce today that our loved one, DMX, birth name of Earl Simmons, passed away at 50-years-old at White Plains Hospital with his family by his side after being placed on life support for the past few days. Earl was a warrior who fought till the very end. He loved his family with all of his heart and we cherish the times we spent with him. Earl’s music inspired countless fans across the world and his iconic legacy will live on forever. We appreciate all of the love and support during this incredibly difficult time. Please respect our privacy as we grieve the loss of our brother, father, uncle and the man the world knew as DMX. We will share information about his memorial service once details are finalized.”

DMX is survived by girlfriend, Desiree Lindstrom, and their child together, Exodus Simmons, 5, and 17 children in total, by the last count, 4 children with his ex-wife (Xavier, Tacoma, Praise Mary Ella, and Sean Simmons) and various children from different relationships.
