Yesterday, DMX passed away after being on life support for a week in a White Plains, NY hospital after suffering cardiac arrest. Fans worldwide have been paying homage to the hip-hop legend and are streaming his music heavily.
A lot of misinformation has been spreading regarding X over the last week and now, there is sadly more. On social media on Saturday, rumors have circulated that Jay Z and Beyoncé have bought DMX’s masters for $10 million in order to help his children.
As of now, there is zero confirmation of this and neither Jay or Bey have spoken on this. There was also a similar incident in 2019 where a rumor spread that Jay set up a $15 million trust fund for Nipsey Hussle’s children. That turned out to not be true.
As for X, his home town of Yonkers is planning a tribute to him. A public memorial may also be set up at Yonkers Raceway. At the White Plains hospital he passed away at, people have been leaving items such as notes and flowers.
