Reacting, DMX’s manager, Steve Rifkind, in a video via his Instagram account said he is still on life support.
“I would like to plead that everybody should stop with posting these rumours.
“DMX is still alive. Yes, he is on life support, but please, it’s not helping anybody by having them see these false rumours.
”Let the family relax for a night,” he said.
He also affirmed that the rapper’s family will publish a statement today.
