DMX’s 5-Year-Old Son Battling Stage 3 Kidney Disease

DMX’s 5-Year-Old Son Battling Stage 3 Kidney Disease 1


The late DMX’s 5-year-old son has been diagnosed with stage 3 kidney disease.

The rapper’s son Exodus has been dealing with health issues. Last week, X’s fiancée, Desiree Lindstrom, first revealed the boy has been diagnosed with kidney disease. “Exodus is stable,” Lindstrom shared on the It’s Tricky podcast Raquel Harper. “He still has stage 3 kidney disease, and I continue to keep his potassium down. He can’t eat no high potassium foods. He goes to the doctor very often.”

She shared the clip on Instagram along with the caption, “Exodus is an amazing child! Blessed to be his mother through this journey. March is the month that brings awareness to kidney disease. Take the time to learn about CKD. Knowledge is key. Thank you for the support @nationalkidneyfoundation and #columbiapresbyterianhospitalnyc. Prayers are much appreciated! #ForeverX.”

On Thursday (March 10), Lindstrom shared a video of Exodus, the youngest of X’s 15 children, celebrating National Kidney Day. “National Kidney Day…March 10th! Blessings from our family to yours!” she captioned the short clip. “Exodus is a CKD Warrior and an amazing child! Thanks for all the love and support from @NationalkidneyFoundation #columbiapresbyterianhospitalnyc #ForeverX.”

According to kidneyfund.org, stage 3 kidney disease is categorized as “mild to moderate damage to your kidneys. Your kidneys do not work as well as they should to filter waste and extra fluid out of your blood.” This can lead to other health problems such as high blood pressure and bone disease.

DMX died of a heart attack at the age of 50 on April 9, 2021. His final album, Exodus, was released a month later and featured Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Swizz Beatz, Alicia Keys, Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine, Benny The Butcher, The LOX, Moneybagg Yo, Bono and others. The LP debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 chart.


Birthdate: Dec. 18, 1970
Died: April 9, 2021
Cause of Death: Heart attack
DMX suffered a heart attack that was reportedly brought on by a drug overdose in his home in White Plains, N.Y. on the night of April 2. He was taken to White Plains Hospital, where he was admitted to the ICU and after undergoing tests, X was reported to have little brain activity. For one week, X was on life support before his death was announced on April 9. He was 50 years old.
X will be remembered as an artist who helped define an era in hip-hop. His 20-plus year rap career features multiple multi-platinum albums including the critically acclaimed It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot and Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood, and an impact that can not be quantified.
At the time of his passing, X had completed his final album, Exodus, which was released on May 28.
