DMX Rushed to Hospital for Food Poisoning

Bad shellfish sends DMX to the ER.

DMX took one messy plane ride from Miami to Charlotte, NC, last night. Suffering from a severe stomachache, the veteran rapper threw up throughout the flight and was rushed to the emergency room upon landing in Charlotte.
According to TMZ, X was treated for food poisoning at Gastonia Memorial Hospital outside of Charlotte as soon as he landed. The victim of some "bad shrimp" he ate before boarding his flight, the multi-platinum-selling MC spent four hours in the hospital. X has since recovered from the illness and made his way home.
In related news, DMX and the Ruff Ryders crew are planning to reunite this year for a reunion tour. Swizz Beatz, Drag-On and Murda Mook are reportedly already on board for a tour. Previously, Eve also indicated that she is willing to get back with the group, while X said he still needs to talk to members of The Lox (Jadakiss, Styles P, Sheek Louch).


DMX will be releasing two albums of his own this year — Undisputed and another yet-to-be-titled project, both comprised of previously unreleased material.
