Black Rob pays tribute to DMX in video from hospital bed leaving fans concerned for his health

RAPPER Black Rob paid tribute to DMX in a video from a hospital bed, leaving fans concerned for his health.

The video was posted to Instagram by DJ Self, and appears to show Black Rob struggling to speak as he sends "big love to X."


In the beginning of the video, the rapper says the pain he is in is "crazy," but has made him realize he has "a lot to go on."

It's unclear what health issues the rapper, best known for the 2000 hit Whoa!, is dealing with or why he was hospitalized.

DJ self urged fans to keep Black Rob, whose real name is Robert Ross, in their prayers.

"Get well man," he wrote in the caption for the video. "Please people out there take care of yourself … BR was one of the greats.

"Had NY on his back like Whaoooo," he added.

Fans were concerned by the shocking video, but sent prayers and love his way on social media.

"We can't lose 2 legends in 2 week," wrote one. "Pull through Rob."

"Peace Rob. Prayers to you brother," wrote another.

The rapper, 51, was formerly signed to the Bad Boy label and has put out four studio albums.

DMX, whose real name was Earl Simmons, suffered a drug overdose that triggered a fatal heart attack last week, according to reports.

Stars have been posting videos and tributes to DMX since the rapper's family confirmed on Friday that he has passed away after spending a week reportedly in a "vegetative state" in the hospital.

"Very Very Very few will EVER do it like you homie…. Man! This sucks… Tooooo Fn young to go. Rest easy X," ICE T wrote while sharing a video of DMX performing.

"DMX. His gift meant so much to so many. Sending love to his family," wrote actress Halle Berry.

Snoop Dogg was short on words after DMX's passing, as he shared a compilation of pictures of several iconic rappers including DMX, Tupac, Notorious B.I.G. and Jay-Z, and wrote: "Thank you, hip-hop."

New York Congressman Jamaal Bowman posted a video mourning the rapper to his Twitter.

"DMX was born in Mount Vernon and raised in Yonkers. But his energy, his passion, his art, touched people across the globe," he wrote.

"I will never forget seeing him at Summer Jam in '98 and literally feeling like the atoms were jumping out of my body. Rest in Power. X for life."
