DMX’s condition is improving, less than 24 hours after a drug overdose which triggered a heart attack leaving fans offering prayer and tribute.

The Ruff Ryders rapper’s longtime lawyer, Murray Richman, spoke to PIX 11 in New York on Saturday (April 3) and confirmed X suffered the heart attack but would not dive into details of whether it was triggered by a drug overdose or not.

“He’s currently in the hospital as the result of a heart attack,” Richman said. “He’s off life support and he’s breathing on his own, but we are concerned. It would be disingenuous for me to suggest that I’m not a worried man at this particular point.”

He added, “I’m very sad about it, extremely sad. He’s like my son. He’s just a tremendous person, tremendous entertainer, tremendous human being. And so much to offer, so much to say. Not the run-of-the-mill rapper. A person of great depth.”

Throughout the day, X’s peers such as Eminem, Ice Cube and more have offered a prayer for him as he continues to fight and regain his health. Due to privacy concerns, the hospital has not released an official update on X’s condition, not have they listed him as a patient.

“Prayers for DMX and his family,” Missy Elliott wrote.

“Prayers out 2 @DMX & his family,” Eminem wrote. “True legend!! Pullin 4 u please stay strong!!
