Rick Ross Says DMX’s Death Should Motivate Other Rappers

“Me having family members that suffer with addiction, I understood the struggle that he was up against,” Rick Ross said.

Another veteran in the industry, Rick Ross, has also been affected by the rapper’s death and thinks that his life should be used as a learning experience for rappers. Let’s turn up. In March 2018, he was hospitalized after suffering seizures. I saw him really focused and turned up. In 2019 during an interview with People magazine, he admitted that the seizures were caused by a combination of things, including drug use. He has also had his own troubles with addiction in the past. He added: “So it’s something that was really painful. Of course, I didn’t expect this. Let’s do what Dark Man X would have wanted us to do. And hearing about his addiction many years ago, being in the industry, it’s something that’s been in my heart the most,” he said. There’s no doubt that the loss of DMX has left a gaping hole of wisdom in the Hip Hop community. That mixed with the things I was drinking, the other drugs I was doing, and on top of not resting. At that time, he said: “It was the codeine. Rick Ross opened up about DMX and why his death should motivate other rappers. Rick Ross has an acute understanding of addiction since it has haunted his family for many years. Let’s go to the next level.”
