Who is DMX's brother Montana?

NEW York rapper DMX was hospitalized the evening of April 2 after suffering an apparent drug overdose.

For years DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, has struggled with drug addiction throughout his adult life, after he smoked a marijuana cigarette laced with the crack cocaine.

Who is DMX's brother Montana?

DMX's brother Montana has kept a low profile, despite his brother being a multi-platinum selling artist.

Montana managed the Ruff Ryder rapper during the heyday of his music career in the late 1990s.

At one time Montana was the Director and President of Ruff Ryder entertainment imprint.

However, it is unclear whether that is still his role.

Why is DMX in the hospital?

DMX's overdose is said to have taken place in his home on the evening of April 2.

X is currently in a hospital in White Plains, New York in a critical care unit.

A source told TMZ that he is in a "vegetative state," while another claims the Harlem born musician has "some brain activity."

Information first started to circulate when famed NY rapper Eric B shared an image of himself and DMX.

He captioned the image: “Please pray for my brother DMX,” along with the hashtag #DMXhospitalized.

DMX's brain was starved of oxygen for 30 minutes as paramedics tried to save him following a drug overdose, a report says.

Yet, a family member told TMZ that the star's brain was deprived of oxygen as paramedics tried to resuscitate him for 30 minutes.

According to the report, doctors told relatives that the lack of oxygen has severely impacted the rapper's brain.

One insider said: "It's not looking good."

His attorney Murray Richman said that DMX has been joined in the hospital by his first wife and some of his 15 children.

Richman yesterday told reporters that the 50-year-old was breathing on his own but later retracted that statement saying he had been given "the wrong information."

DMX's team then released a statement saying: "Last night Earl 'DMX' Simmons was rushed to the hospital after collapsing at home.

"At this time he remains in ICU in critical condition. Earl has been a warrior his entire life.

"This situation represents yet another road he must conquer. The Simmons Family appreciates the overwhelming outpouring of heartfelt love, encouragement, support and prayers for Earl.

"Earl is someone whose life and music have been a source of inspiration and strength to so many people around the world.

"It is reassuring to see his fans return that same passion and energy to him during his time of need."

What is DMX's current state?

DMX fans held a vigil outside the New York hospital as the rapper remained on life support after "his overdose triggered a heart attack".

The family of the rapper said in an email on April 4 that the vigil will be held outside White Plains Hospital in New York at 5pm on April 5.

In an email seen by AP, the family said: "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."

A second email confirmed that the rapper is still in a coma and was currently using a ventilator.
