“The Wire” actor Hassan Johnson isn’t keeping quiet. The Hollywood star has come forward to share his issues with Murder Inc. boss Irv Gotti appearing to blame drugs for the cause of late rap icon DMX’s death.
‘The Wire’ Star Backs 50 Cent
Gotti’s longtime rap rival 50 Cent initially put up an Instagram pic of Irv and audio suggesting X had drugs in his body. Fifty swung first by questioning why he would make a statement about Earl Simmons’ cause of death.
“This guy is a idiot, 👀did he just say DMX died from smoking crack and fentanyl! 🤷🏽♂️why would he say that?”
In the comments section, Johnson and The LOX’s Jadakiss gave their take on the audio.

Kanye West Raises $1 Million For DMX’s Family
A few days ago, reports surfaced about rap star Kanye West’s Yeezy apparel brand partnering with fashion house Balenciaga to produce tribute shirts for DMX, which went on sale the day of DMX’s public memorial service in Brooklyn.
The shirts retailed for $200 and reportedly sold out in 24 hours. They raked in 1 million dollars in profit for the family of the American Music Award winner, who died on April 9 at 50 years old.
X Now Officially Has A Day
Recently, New York stepped up as a city to honor the late hip-hop icon in a special way. The New York State Senate has reportedly declared a national day for the rapper and will officially recognize it from this point on.
From here on out, New York will honor December 18th — the late hip-hop icon’s birthday — as DMX Day. The news was announced by Erica Ford, co-founder of gun violence prevention organization Life Camp, and Priscilla Echi, a Westchester community activist, during a church service on Sunday, April 25th. The service was aired on BET as DMX’s “Homegoing Celebration”. (CoS)
