Controversial rapper DMX was recently rushed to an emergency room in Florida due to health related concerns.

According to TMZ, the former Def Jam artist was reportedly taken to a medical facility yesterday (September 22) in Aventura for an alleged “fear of stroke.” X’s last stint at a center was when he missed a court date last month due to allegedly being admitted into a Miami hospital with intent to attend a rehabilitation program on the same day.

Ironically, X was also scheduled to appear in an Arizona court today but it is unlikely he will be able to do so.

As previously reported by SOHH, the multi-platinum selling rapper was extradited from Florida to an Arizona jail earlier this month to face charges he accumulated in the state.

As reported in the Arizona Republic, X was moved from a Miami Dade County on September 10 and taken to Phoenix, Arizona’s Maricopa County Jail. In addition to facing felony drug possession charges, X is also expected to defend his numerous traffic violations, animal cruelty accusations, plus defrauding a hospital with an invalid Social Security number and name.

He was held on a strict $25,000 cash-only bond.

As of press time, there has been no word from X’s reps.
