Jeez, this sucks. He really fought to the end, he was on life support for like a week... :(

Dark Man X will always be one of the greatest. Amazingly influential he was and is, and also his catalog.

I'm really sad, and I don't know what to say, I'm just truly sad, and I will just listen to 'It's Dark and Hell Is Hot' and then watch Belly again just to pay tribute to this legend.

R.I.P DMX

rip. drug addiction is a serious problem, and sadly he was a victim to the claws of it.

Someone he looked up a lot and idolized as a teenager first put him onto drugs, indirectly. They pulled off theft, and his "mentor" was smoking a blunt laced with crack. He passed it to the then child DMX, and that was the start of his problems with drugs, that would ultimately claim his life. Troubled human, decent rapper, not a fan, but it's another sad, preventable example of an artist losing their battle

As a complete supporter of drug rights, this is what could happen to you if you abuse it. USE DRUGS RESPONSIBLY, Y'ALL. OR EVERYONE IN YOUR FAMILY'S GONNA CRY BECAUSE YOU OVERDOSED. GOD CAN'T HAVE THAT SHIT. HE JUST CAN'T. And, in this case, the ones cryin' are not only the family of DMX, but all the followers and fans of this now legend of the hip-hops as well.

You can't help but put respect on his name for giving us some real classics in the 90's. Rest easy, DMX. Rest easy.

Not to be dark but he 100% passed last night but they just came out and said he didn't so the family could announce it themselves today.
Whoever leaked it is a real piece of shit though, damn.

@OZYMVNDIAS what sort of drug rights? I feel like some drugs need to be outright from eliminated from society
April 9, 2021
The overall laws that prevent it's normalization. I believe that all drugs should be legal, but I'm not one for politics.

I don't want to start a fight here (not that I'm saying you're perpetuating one, because you're not). We're trying to commemorate the passing of a hip-hop star.

This really sucks, and I never knew the guy until now

rip to a great

It sucks this man couldn't have the MF DOOM treatment. Too many eyes we're on him when he died. I've never really been a fan, but I hate the idea of not letting friends and family grieve with a loss like this. Rest in peace, DMX. Hip Hop Universe is probably really sad right now, somebody give that oldhead a hug!

This man was a raging homophobic, but RIP, I guess

@bonolightier shut up. the whole world mourning, regardless of sexuality. one awkward verse from a single from 2003 cannot compare to the endless amounts of stories about how much of a kind man he was to everyone in life everyone has been sharing this week. shut the fuck up.
April 10, 2021
@BonoLighter not today. we know about that dude. hes done some good too. and he was trying to save himself
April 10, 2021
@BonoLightier "I believe in Rock N' Roll and in glitter." pepega as fuck
April 10, 2021
"RIP i guess" What the fuck is that suppoused to mean? If you don't like the guy, then shut the fuck up about his death.

Calling DMX a "raging homophobe" is like calling me a white supremacist due to my ancient lineage.

@OZYMVNDIAS all drugs to be legal? Nah. not all of it definitely.
