A rumor has been swerlin around that DMX’s masters was purchased by the power couple Jay-Z & Beyoncé for $10 million in order to give it to his children. DMX’s longtime friend and collaborator Swizz Beatz has stepped forward to dispel any rumors about it.

On the Instagram page of @chakabar was a fictional purchase report which said that the couple had bought DMX’s masters. However, Swizz Beatz was quick to comment “Not True King🙏🏽.”

DMX’s family also stepped forward with a statement via Billboard, and ended the rumor once and for all. The rumor had been an issue for them, and after it started going viral, it needed to be resolved.

There have been a few rumors following our loved one, Earl Simmons’, passing that we’d like to clear up. No one has bought Earl’s masters. Additionally, we are not selling any merch or raising money for Earl’s funeral. If anyone is requesting for money for his funeral please be aware the person is a scammer. We will keep the public posted on funeral/memorial service arrangements.

While it’s unclear as to who has the ownership of his Masters, his musical projects were always under Def Jam Recordings. The late-rapper had just finished an album under Def Jam & Ruff Ryders. The long-awaited album is going to feature Griselda, Lil Wayne, Alicia Keys, the late Pop Smoke, Snoop Dogg, U2’s Bono, The LOX, and many more artists.

The artist passed away recently, after being admitted in the hospital. He had overdosed on drugs, and then suffered an enormous heart attack. We mourn his passing and hope that his family and friends make it through this rough time. Rest In Peace.
