The situation is nothing short of absolutely tragic and there’s no other way to put it. The man was a legend, and was arguably the best rapper in the game in his prime.

Unfortunately, DMX had some very tough years later in life and clearly struggled with drug issues. I’m really at a loss for words.

Death is always tough, but it’s even tougher when death happens for 100% avoidable reasons, which is the case here.
