He was hospitalized on April 2 after suffering a heart attack following a reported drug overdose, and had been in a vegetative state, according to his manager.

The mainstream rapper has never shied away from sharing his Christian faith despite his sometimes vulgar music. He has recorded several songs talking about his faith, including “Lord Give Me a Sign” and “Damien.”

DMX has openly said in the past that he wants to become a pastor. In a video posted on Facebook in 2016, he stated that his dream of becoming a minister is slowly becoming a reality.

The video showed the emcee behind a pulpit preaching about the miracle that is birthed from tragedy.
