50 Cent took another social media shot at longtime rap-industry rival Irv Gotti -- this time after Gotti’s spoke about the death of hip-hop legend DMX. In a radio interview, the CEO of Murder Inc. relayed a theory that DMX overdosed on a mixture of crack and fentanyl, which led to his death on April 9.
G-Unit boss 50 Cent shared the audio clip on his Instagram and called Gotti an “idiot”. DMX’s friend and Ruff Ryders labelmate Swizz Beatz also weighed in with insults for Gotti.
While many rumors surrounding DMX’s death have focused on a drug overdose, details have not yet been revealed by a medical examiner.
50 Cent and Irv Gotti’s bad blood dates back to the early 2000s when 50 and Murder Inc. artist Ja Rule were in a heated rivalry.
