DMX was rushed to White Plains Hospitalin early April after suffering a reported drug overdose and subsequent heart attack.
DMXs unexpected death sent shockwaves through the Hip Hop community, and there was endless speculation on how he actually passed away. Due to his lifelong struggles with substance abuse, the drug overdose theory seemed plausible. But Irv Gotti prematurely spoke on DMXs cause of death,infuriating people in the process. They said it was a bad dose of crack and they said some drug Fentanyl was mixed in with the crack and thats what made him overdose, he told 107.5 WGCI in Chicago. When when he got to the hospital, he got diagnosed with COVID and he couldnt breathe you know that COVID messes with your respiratory system so thats why he had to get hooked up to the ventilator. But they said before he did, His brain died. Although there was some truth to what he said, Gotti eventually admitted it wasnt his place. He ultimately issued an apology for the interview after he faced some serious backlash. I spoke with @tasherasimmons Who I love also, he wrote on Instagram. And I apologized as soon as I seen it went left. I explained to her I was only saying things that I heard reported already. To which she said they dont know if its real yet. They are waiting for the doctors to come back and tell them. Then which I apologized even more I apologize for talking out of turn.
