50 Cent is calling out Irv Gotti for the comments he made about DMX’s death. On Thursday, the Queens-born rapper posted on his Instagram account a picture of Gotti with the caption calling him an idiot. “This guy is a idiot. Did he just say DMX died from smoking crack and fentanyl! Why would he say that?” Last week, during an interview, Irv Gotti stated that DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, died from smoking fentanyl-laced crack cocaine."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.” Gotti 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.”Earlier this month, it was reported that DMX had suffered from an alleged drug overdose. The rapper has been very vocal about his substance abuse issues, however, no cause of death was officially documented. He passed away on April 9th, at the age of 50.
