DMX has expressed his gratitude for the police officers who saved his life after he was found unconscious outside a Yonkers, New York, hotel in February.

To return the benevolent act, the rapper recently gave a free show on Oct. 21 during the annual “Toughman Competition,” a charity boxing event for the police and fire departments of Yonkers. For the 45-year-old, the life-saving experience was a stark contrast to his past run-ins with the law.  

“There’s a few officers here tonight that, on Feb. 8, saved my life,” he said during his performance. “To go from at one point running from the police to get away from what I was doing to having police save my life. True heroes. And I’m not speaking from what somebody else told me or someone else opinion, this is my personal experience.”

According to the Associated Press, X resumed breathing after he was given a opioid reversal medication by paramedics, in addition to oxygen and CPR provided by officers. His lawyer, Murray Richman went on to confirm that the rapper had stopped breathing and suffers from asthma, but did not know the cause of the incident.

Proceeds from the event will go toa number of local service organizations including the Ronald McDonald House of New York, and the New York Firefighters Burn Center Foundation to help assist wounded service members.

  ummmm  Since he's soooooooooooo grateful and all.  Let's see if he's gonna start SUPPORTING all those kids he has and be the father THEY need.  This is nothing but puff.  Shall I call  him a coon eunuch now?  Or wait to see if his gratitude has change his life to be a better person?  I think I'll just go to the former and wait and see if the latter will be true.  But!

I can't see any human being be anything but grateful to the person/people that saves their life, and considering how lucky he was that they were not racist cops that would have did nothing [or held EMS at bay] until they were sure he as dead, who could blame him for being grateful.  

   I hear ya my sista.  But he needs to KNOW why the universe saved him one mo' time.  He has asthma and has  had several episodes...of not catching breathe.  And since he's been a druggy too?  My thought is where the children are.  When I say when is he gonna realize that he has a higher responsibility?  This isn't the first time someone saved  his life.  He's not reading the memo.  But!
