    Report: DMX almost dies from drug overdose

    The rapper DMX almost died from a drug overdose in Yonkers on Monday night — but cops saved his life, a police source said Tuesday.


    The 45-year-old “Slippin” singer collapsed next to a white BMW — and stopped breathing — in the parking lot of a Ramada Inn at around 6:20 p.m., the sources said. He also had no pulse.

    Four cops gave him CPR and a medic injected him with Narcan, an anti-opioid used to reverse the effects of a heroin overdose, the police source said.

    A witness at the scene, who knows the rapper, said he had taken a powdered drug before he collapsed, the police source said. He became “semi-conscious” and was rushed to a nearby hospital, the source said.

    “The cops did a great job, they saved [his] life — no doubt about it,” a police spokesman said.

    A rep for DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, claimed early Tuesday he had suffered another asthma attack.

    But a source familiar with the situation fired back, “They’re trying to cover up by saying it was an asthma attack. Obviously they don’t want to put out that this was an overdose.”

    No drugs were found at the scene and no criminal charges were filed, the police source said.

    Simmons was arrested in October for allegedly failing to pay $10,000 a month in child support, according to the Journal News.

    I worked with X about 10 years ago.
    He was kinda funny actually.
    VERRRY stereotypical (if you know what I mean) big posse, lotta weed and Heinekens.
    And he was always offering crew people money to do weird stunts
