It looks like DMX is doing just fine!
As we previously reported, the X Gon Give It to Ya rapper was rushed to the hospital on Monday for allegedly suffering from a drug overdose. Oh no!
However, on Thursday, the 45-year-old seemed to be on the mend after being spotted en route to a performance at the The Lively nightclub in the Meatpacking district of NYC. Well, someone's recovered quickly!
In fact, due to HIPAA laws, the authorities were unable to confirm DMX's identity following the incident.
Still, Lieutenant Patrick McCormack DID reveal that
What a frightening situation!
Authorities say they responded to a report of an unconscious male at the Ramada Inn in Yonkers, New York late Monday night. When they arrived, police encountered a lifeless man's body (DMX) next to a parked a car. Since the musician had no pulse and was unconscious, the cops began CPR right away.
Now here's where things get dicey. A witness told law enforcement they watched the 45-year-old snort some kind of white powder before falling to the ground. Based off of this information, cops gave the father Narcan, a very effective antidote to narcotics. Narcan would have been very helpful in the Lamar Odom case — it can prevent a lot of damage if administered quickly.
Luckily for DMX, the antidote rendered him conscious and he's now in stable condition. Additionally, no charges have been filed against him at this time.
We wish the New York native the best.

This is scary!
Rapper DMX, real name Earl Simmons, is currently recovering in a hospital after collapsing outside of his room at the Ramada Yonkers in New York on Monday evening.
The 45-year-old is believed to have suffered a pretty nasty asthma attack, which left him with shortness of breath and chest pains. Ouch!
The rapper/actor apparently complained of the pain before he collapsed as members of his entourage frantically
Things aren't looking too good for DMX.
The rapper AKA Earl Simmons was arrested in New York on Tuesday for allegedly failing to pay $10,000 a month in child support for his four children with ex-wife Tashera Simmons, according to the Westchester County Clerk's office.
Did we mention the 44-year-old just got out of jail in September after being charged for not paying $400,000 in child support to another woman?
The Party Up singer spoke in front of Judge Paul Marx — where he argued that he needs to be able to perform in order to make money to pay the child support:
"It's not like I can hide. All I have is my name and my reputation. [Rapping is the] only way I can make a living."
Marx decided to give X a chance, and he was set to be released. The next scheduled court appearance is November 18.
This is just another infraction to add to a long list of legal problems for the rapper ranging from: alleged robbery, jumping bail, resisting arrest, reckless driving, drug possession, and identity falsification.
We just hope the kids are taken care of.
