DMX Died Of Cocaine-Induced Heart Attack

Autopsy results confirm that rapper DMX died of a heart attack induced by cocaine.

According to Vulture, the heart attack caused a lack of blood circulation to his brain. 

The Westchester County medical examiner's office said, "It was cardiac arrest for a period of time, so there was no circulation to the brain," they said.


In April, Irv Gotti claimed DMX died after taking a bad dose of 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 said at the time. "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. But they said before he did, he was brain dead."

He was dragged online and soon posted an apology.
