The rapper DMX is hospitalized in his native New York in Westchester County in grave condition, according to a report by TMZ.

DMX, age 50, whose birth name is Earl Simmons, suffered an overdose around 11 p.m. Friday, April 2, which led to a heart attack, according to TMZ.

He is hospitalized in the critical care unit in White Plains, the report said.
