The Yonkers-bred MC, born Earl Simmons, passed away on Friday (April 9) after experiencing a heart attack triggered by a drug overdose. He was 50.

“We are deeply saddened to announce today that our loved one, DMX, birth name of Earl Simmons, passed away at 50-years-old at White Plains Hospital with his family by his side after being placed on life support for the past few days.

Earl was a warrior who fought till the very end. He loved his family with all of his heart and we cherish the times we spent with him. Earl’s music inspired countless fans across the world and his iconic legacy will live on forever,” his family said in a statement.”

“We appreciate all of the love and support during this incredibly difficult time. Please respect our privacy as we grieve the loss of our brother, father, uncle and the man the world knew as DMX. We will share information about his memorial service once details are finalized.”

Netflix buys Kanye West documentary for $30 million

Published

on

Netflix has reportedly purchased an untitled Kanye West documentary—which has been in development for over 20 years—for $30 million. This untitled project—which the streaming behemoth reportedly purchased for $30 million—has been in development for over 20 years, and showcases West in multiple stages of his musical career.

The documentary was created by Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah, the same duo who directed the artist’s debut music video, “Through the Wire,” and “Jesus Walks pt. 3.” The film will not only focus on the relationship between the three, but will highlight West’s trajectory as a prevalent musician; his position in politics; and deeply personal moments including his mourning the death of his mother, Donda West. Coodie and Chike have put together West’s stories through footage they’ve shot themselves over the decades, as well as through home videos and never-before-seen content.

The Atlanta-hailing rapper first exploded onto the music scene in the early 2000s, generating hit after hit after hit. Apart from his songs, though, West has pursued other (very lucrative) ventures in industries such as fashion, as evidenced by his incredibly popular line, Yeezy.

West, too, has remained a highly discussed public figure. Not only has he been previously married to Kim Kardashian—the two of them long considered one of the top celebrity power couples—but his association with President Donald Trump and his own 2020 presidential consideration has kept him elevated in the public eye.

The documentary is reportedly scheduled to be released on the platform sometime this year.
