Earl Simmons, rap legend better known as DMX, has passed on after suffering a heart attack from an apparent drug overdose.
The 50-year-old breathed his last on Friday at White Plains Hospital in New York after spending about a week in the medical facility on life support.
The Yonkers-bred MC died after suffering from a “catastrophic cardiac arrest.”
Celebrities and fans have taken to social media platforms to pay their last respect to the deceased rapper as words of his death spread.
“Even though you had battles you TOUCHED so many through your MUSIC and when you would PRAY so many people FELT THAT!. This is heavy for the HipHop family but your LEGACY LIVES ON & your SPIRIT,” Missy Elliot wrote.
“RIP DMX. Thank you for being the soundtrack of my childhood,” Burna Boy wrote.

RIP DMX. No one radiated more agony, pain, and atomic energy. The Cerberus from Yonkers, who suffered for all of our sins and his own. Maybe the rawest rapper of all-time, no pretense or frills, just pure adrenaline, lawless genius, and reckless abandon. The struggle incarnate. pic.twitter.com/P80t1GQHEa

As a young man I quickly wrote off the faith of DMX. Now I understand the complex subjectivity of his spirituality too well. May his life teach us to be honest about pain, success and self reflection . #RIPDMX

I photographed DMX 3 or 4 times and I was always hyped about seeing him perform. Imo whatever garbage he was doing in his life it seemed to disappear once he hit the stage. Always entertaining to see him on stage and hear his unmistakable voice. #RIPDMX pic.twitter.com/7xig39nEXJ
