US rapper DMX is reportedly in hospital in serious condition, after a heart attack.
An update from his lawyer says he has now been taken off life support (as of Sunday morning, NZ time) and is breathing on his own again.
"We are concerned. It would be disingenuous of me to suggest that I'm not a worried man at this particular point," Murray Richman, the rapper's lawyer, said.
According to TMZ, the heart attack was triggered by a drug overdose. The entertainment news site states the rapper's prognosis is "not good".
