In 2021 fans of the iconic DMX mourned his untimely passing. It was a shock to many when the inspirational rap star got hospitalized with reports of being in a coma. He received prayers and well wishes from around the world, but DMX would not overcome the reported accidental overdose. Dark Man X left behind a fiancée Desiree Lindstrom and a their five-year-old son, Exodus, on her own. In a recent interview with It’s Tricky with Raquel Harper, Lindstrom shared some sad news.It was the revealing of her son, Exodus, combating health issues, but is fighting well, with all things considered.

“Exodus is stable, he’s been stable since I had him,” said Lindstrom. “He still has stage 3 kidney disease and I’ve just continued to keep his potassium down, he can’t eat high potassium foods. He goes to the doctor very often… He’s an amazing child.”

Desiree shared that portion of her interview to her Instagram page and added to her remarks.

“Exodus is an amazing child! Blessed to be his mother through this journey,” she wrote in the caption. “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!”
