As family and friends are still struggling to accept the loss of DMX, Irv Gotti has shared alleged details of his cause of death. In an interview with Kendra G on “The WGCI Morning Show”, the record executive revealed that the late rapper had COVID-19, which was only found out when he was taken to the hospital following his overdose.

The ‘Murder Inc.’ founder revealed the shocking information while appearing on Chicago’s 107.5 WGCI’s morning show, and included brutal details involving DMX’s last hours.
In the interview, Gotti — who originally signed DMX — says the legendary got a “bad dose of crack” which was somehow mixed or laced with the deadly drug Fentanyl.
After arriving at the hospital, following the overdose and massive heart attack, Irv says X was also diagnosed with COVID-19.
In the stunning interview, Irv Gotti says he got the call in the hours following the rapper’s overdose — revealing, “They said it was a bad dose of crack and they said some drug Fentanyl was mixed in with the crack and that’s what made him overdose.”
He continued, “Then when he got to the hospital, he got diagnosed with COVID and he couldn’t breathe — you know that COVID messes with your respiratory system — so that’s why he had to get hooked up to the ventilator.”
As we reported, Gotti confirmed reports that DMX had minimal brain activity after being placed on life support, saying, “His brain died.”
After hearing the severity of DMX’s situation, Gotti says he wouldn’t have wanted the legendary to have to live in that condition. The family revealed to the Hip Hop mogul that even if the rapper survived he would most likely be in a “vegetative state.”
The Murder Inc. boss emotionally told the radio show hosts that he is relieved the rapper is “at peace” and doesn’t have to continue “fighting his demons.” In the end, Gotti says he is headed to New York to attend DMX’s funeral and maybe speaking at the memorial.
A public memorial service is scheduled for Saturday, April 24 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, followed by a private service at an undisclosed church in New York City the next day.
Worth noting the interview with Irv Gotti has since been deleted from Youtube.
