As Radar reported, DMX was hospitalized after overdosing at his home on Friday around 11 PM. According to reports, he also suffered a heart attack that was brought on by the OD. 

He's been on life support with sources telling TMZ that doctors are preparing the family for the worst and some saying the rapper is in a "vegetable state." 

Over the weekend, a group of motorcycle riders who named their crew after DMX's Ruff Ryders family, rolled up to the hospital to pay tribute to the star.
