Rapper DMX is currently on life support, after suffering an alleged drug overdose. Now MTO News has learned that police in DMX home town of Yonkers, NY are looking for the person who sold DMX the drugs - that may have taken the rapper's life.
And according to one family member, if DMX dies - they will be looking to prosecute the drug dealer with MURDER.
The family member, who spoke to MTO News on condition of anonymity, explained, "Police are involved. They're looking to find and arrest whoever did this to [DMX."
DMX's last drug related arrest came in 2018, when he was arrested for leaving a court-ordered drug treatment program. Police say that at the time - the rapper was back on drugs, and using cocaine and Oxycodone.

And those are two DEADLY drugs these days.
The area where DMX lives has been suffering from a wave of overdoses - linked to cocaine laced with the deadly additive fentanyl.
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.
Four more overdose victims were rushed to the hospital but are expected to live. Yonkers police believe all six overdoses are connected to the same source.
Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid similar to morphine, is part of a lethal, nationwide drug epidemic that has been overshadowed and exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
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.
