Rapper DMX, best known for his early 2000s hits has been hospitalized since he collapsed in a parking lot on Monday, police have confirmed to The Daily News.

The rapper fell unconscious outside of a Ramada Inn hotel in Yonkers, and apparently did not have a pulse when officers arrived. They immediately began to perform CPR and were able to revive him after about a minute.
While there hasn't been an official statement from DMX or his team, it is being reported that he will likely be okay. He is in stable condition at the hospital and is not expected to be charged with a crime for the incident.
"This was an excellent job by the officers and they definitely saved the life," Lt. Patrick McCormack told The Daily News, though per privacy laws he did not refer to DMX by name. "They found him in a lifeless condition with no breathing. They were able to bring back some breathing."
Many people thought that the attack had to do with asthma, since the rapper has long battled the condition, but a witness to the scene said that he saw the rapper ingest a powdery substance before he collapsed. Police also were reported to have given DMX Narcan, which is frequently used as an antidote for drug overdoses at the scene.
The rapper is no stranger to trouble with the law, however. Just this last July he was sentenced to 6 months in jail after he didn't pay $400,000 in child support. He was released after two months but was then arrested against in December when he missed a court hearing.
