Now, it has been reported that police is looking for the Yonkers, NY native’s drug dealer that may have taken the rapper’s life. According to one family member – if DMX dies – police will be looking to prosecute the drug dealer with murder.

Last month, Yonkers police confirmed that one person died and another is in “grave condition” after overdosing on a tainted batch of fentanyl-laced cocaine.
DMX’s last drug related arrest came in 2018, when he was put behind bars for leaving a court-ordered drug treatment program. Police say that at the time that the rapper was back on drugs using cocaine and Oxycodone.
Between May 2019 and May 2020, America saw the highest number of overdose deaths ever recorded in a 12-month period, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
