Hundreds reportedly gathered Monday to pray and offer support for DMX as he remains hospitalized following a heart attack he suffered on Friday.

CNN affiliate News 12 reported that as many as 500 people gathered outside the White Plains, New York, hospital where the rapper and actor is currently being treated.

His longtime attorney, Murray Richman, confirmed to CNN Sunday that DMX had suffered a heart attack around 11 p.m. on Friday at his home in White Plains and was taken via ambulance to a local hospital.

Richman said then that the artist was on a ventilator. The attorney said he did not know what may have caused the rapper to have had a heart attack.

CNN reached out to representatives for DMX on Tuesday for an update on his condition.
