Rapper DMX remained hospitalized at a New York hospital and was still on life support, his attorney said late Saturday.
DMX’s attorney, Murray Richman, said that the rapper was off life support and was breathing on his own. Richman said that DMX is currently “surrounded by family” and was in “grave condition.”
“I’m very sad about it, extremely sad. He’s like my son,” Richman said “He’s just a tremendous person, tremendous entertainer, tremendous human being. And so much to offer, so much to say. Not the run-of-the-mill rapper. A person of great depth.”
