Controversial rapper DMX (pictured) was hospitalized, after suffering a concussion that resulted from an accident in an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) outside of his South Carolina home, according to the Daily Mail.

DMX, whose actual name is Earl Simmons Jr., was riding down a hill in the ATV when he lost control, crashed, and landed on his backside. The rapper-turned-reality TV star reportedly blacked out after the incident and came to at the flashing lights of the ambulance.
ATVs actually cause an increasing number of injuries and is even considered to be a public health issue. With all things considered, DMX is lucky to not have sustained a brain or neurological injury, which is very common with accidents involving ATVs.
DMX posted an image of himself lying in a hospital bed with his fingers crossed and his eyes closed (pictured right). He also tweeted the following on his Twitter page:
FLIPPED MY F**KN FOUR WHEELER OVER !
Earlier this year, DMX was hospitalized due to a severe bout of food poisoning, after reportedly eating a batch of “bad shrimp.”
And only last month, it was announced that DMX’s group, the Ruff Ryders, which includes group members Eve and Jadakiss, would join the 2012 Rock the Bells Tour.
