DMX Official Death Report Was Released. The Medical Examiners office gave a detailed report. And, there is no more speculation.
No More Speculation on DMX’S Death
Finally, the true cause of DMX death is out. A report from Victoria Bekiempis from Vulture said that DMX died from a cocaine-induced heart attack.
As a result, there was a lack of blood circulation to his brain, as reported by Complex. Apparently, the Westchester County medical examiner’s office presented the documentation.
Although, DMX did not have an autopsy. Medical examiners took documentation from law enforcement and medical officials.
Also, the report mentioned DMX was brain-dead before he was rushed by ambulance to the hospital. So, the chance of his survival was virtually impossible.
In actuality, once the brain dies the person has very little chance of recovery. And, in DMX’s case, excessive long-term cocaine use may have been the culprit.
“When someone is brain dead, it means that the brain is no longer working in any capacity and never will again. Other organs, such as the heart, kidneys or liver, can still work for a short time if the breathing machine is left in place, but when brain death is declared, it means the person has died.
Unfortunately, it was public knowledge that DMX had issues with addiction. In fact, DMX had been very vocal about his battle with substance abuse for years.
Tabloid headlines of DMX either going to prison or in Rehab were constant. Keep in mind, in 2017 DMX had to cancel his tour, as reported by Showbiz Cheat Sheet. He tweeted this message to his fans

Having said this, we must not forget that DMX almost overdosed in 2016. DMX was found with no pulse and he had stopped breathing.
Fortunately, Narcan was administered to him in a parking lot in New York. He was rushed to a hospital. Thankfully, DMX fully recovered in just a matter of days.
Of course, DMX lost his battle in April. Rest In Power DMX. There will never be anyone like you.
