Travis Scott Names His Favorite DMX Song, Shares Well Wishes! DMX is arguably one of the most legendary rappers of the 1990s and 2000s. The rapper’s family confirmed in a statement last weekend, that the “Where The Hood At” hit maker, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was in a “vegetative state” following an alleged drug overdose. Following his hospitalization, conflicting reports hit the news that he was taken off of life support and was breathing on his own, but those were later confirmed as false by DMX’s manager through a statement.
The Hip Hop community continues to show unwavering support and love for DMX after he reportedly suffered a heart attack following an alleged drug overdose last Friday (April 2). Travis Scott could not go without sharing a couple of uplifting words for the rapper when TMZ caught up with him Monday afternoon (April 5).
The outlet was lucky enough to find Scott chilling in his exotic sports car and promptly wanted to know about his favorite DMX song, to which he immediately replied with …And Then There Was X‘s “What’s My Name.”
Travis Scott went ahead to send his positive thoughts the legend’s direction, “We love DMX. X for life!“ he said.
The news of X’s unfortunate illness has shaken the hip-hop community to its core. Even as prayers for DMX’s recovery continue, some of music’s all-time legends have reacted on social media by sending in their prayers. Eminem was not left out too, sending his prayer via a message on Twitter for Dark Man X.

DMX reportedly remains on life support at White Plains Hospital in New York. TMZ described the 50-year-old in a report as being in “grave condition.”
Hundreds of his fans came together Monday evening outside the hospital to hold a vigil in an attempt to help raise the spirits of DMX’s loved ones through prayer. DMX’s ex-wife Tashera Simmons and fiancée Desiree Lindstrom were both in attendance along with his 4-year-old son Exodus accompanied by god-daughter/actress Paige Hurd.
During the event, classic cuts by the rapper such as “Lord Give Me a Sign”, ”Where the Hood At,” and “Party Up” played throughout filling up the streets. The Ruff Ryders Motorcycle Club revved their engines riding around to show their support for DMX as well.
