DMX's family has finally decided to send the popular rapper home. MTO News learned that they decided to pull the plug on the rapper earlier today. DMX has been in the ICU since last week, after suffering a massive heart attack, where he remained in a vegetative state.
The decision to pull the plug, we're told, was made as a family - and was made over the past few days as DMX failed to show signs of brain activity. Over the past few days, however, he was visited by his loved ones - his fiance, ex-wife, and children as they and others prayed for his recovery.
The family released an official statement on his passing today. May Earl Simmons Rest In Peace.
