Reports of DMX’s death on April 8, were premature according to manager Steve Rifkind. The rapper reportedly remains on life support in a vegetative state, according to numerous news agencies on April 9, 2021.
Rifkind published a video on Instagram refuting the rumors that were spreading across social media. The manager stated his condition had not changed.
Reports released earlier in the day on Thursday indicated DMX’s brain scan and other test results were not promising. “X is still in a coma, and sources have said the test results were not good,” wrote Joe Price for Complex Network.
Price added the family was wrestling with the difficult decision of whether or not to remove DMX from life support. Rifkind is scheduled to fly in on Friday to be with the family.
