Master P called him an “icon” and he told TMZ that he hopes “God spares him.”

“I hate that we have to wait until something happens to these guys, to one of us, before everybody really starts saying how much they care and they love you.

“We have to do something about that,” he insisted.

“The truth hurts. Drugs have killed a lot of our great ones. It’s sent a lot of them to prison. I’m praying for DMX and his family.

“We’ve got to celebrate a lot of these icons when they’re alive, all these things we could have done for DMX to help him,” Master P added.

Master P added that there will “never be another DMX,” stating “he’s one of a kind.”

“I hope that God spares him so he can be with us even longer,” he told TMZ.

It was revealed on Thursday that the family of the famed rapper may be forced to make a hard decision today after the results of his brain tests.

The music star, whose real name is Earl Simmons, remains in a coma and had reportedly had no brain activity since he was hospitalized last Friday.

TMZ reported on Wednesday that the brain tests “showed no improvement” of activity since late Friday.

He is said to be in “vegetative state” after suffering a heart attack on Friday night and having to be revived three times.

Citing a source, ET reported how medics “tried to revive him twice in the house, and revived him again in the hospital.”

The insider said: “This is a very difficult time for the family. They are standing by his bedside, holding his hand and praying. They are really in prayer mode.”

On Tuesday, Hospital staff made an “X” sign with their arms out the window as some of the famed rapper’s 15 children joined the emotional vigil.

In another sign of “dwindling hope,” DMX’s longtime manager and friend, Steve Rifkin, has reportedly been asked to fly out to New York.

The family of the rapper asked in an email on Sunday that fans keep the rapper in their “thoughts, wishes and prayer.”

In an email seen by AP, the family said: “On Friday night, April 2nd, 2021, our brother, son, father and colleague DMX, birth name of Earl Simmons, was admitted to White plains (NY) Hospital, facing serious health issues.

“We ask that you please keep Earl/DMX and us in your thoughts, wishes and prayers as well as respect our privacy as we face these challenges.”
