On Saturday morning (May 1), the co-founder of Murder Inc. posted a lengthy Instagram post in response to the backlash he received for claiming that X died after smoking a bad batch of fentanyl-fortified crack during a recent interview on Chicago Radio Station. 107.5 The morning show. “First of all. Let me say it again. How much I love my nigga X. The fact that it’s being questioned is the only reason I feel the need to answer the bullshit. I love X and the ‘love unconditionally and that won’t change until I die. Dog Love. ”Irv wrote, captioning a photo of himself and X that appears to have been taken in the late 1990s.
According to Irv, he was only saying what had already been reported in the media about how DMX died. “Now the interview I did for @wgci and @kendragmedia is the interview where I said what I said about DMX. Now everything I said. Had already been reported in the media, ”Irv added. “If you watch @balleralert and @theshaderoom and other media. Everything I said was already there. I haven’t broken anything I said. But you know what. I get it. Nobody wanted to hear it from me. And for that I’m so sorry. To make people think. I don’t like my nigga X. “
He then opened up about his deep connection to X and said he didn’t mean harm with his comments. “Anyone who knows me or knew X. Can never identify themselves as me and X hasn’t shared a special bond,” Irv said. “I put my whole career on the line for X. And I did things for X that are indisputable. Our relationship has grown and grown to the point where I feel like I understood X and the love he wanted. That’s why I say DOG LOVE. Unconditional LOVE That’s what I gave to X. I don’t care what he did. I loved it. And I always tried to do my best for him. I spoke with @tasherasimmons Who I love too. And I apologized as soon as I explained to him that I was only saying things that I had already heard about. To which she said they weren’t sure if it was real yet. They wait for the doctors to come back and tell them. I apologize even more. For repeating what had been reported. I apologize to my brothers @general_over_everything and @waahdean They know exactly where my heart is with X. And where my heart is with them. We did things together. It will never change how I feel about them. These are my brothers. “
He closed: “Again. I apologize for speaking out of my turn. In my defense. Honestly, I thought I wasn’t saying anything that everyone hasn’t heard before. If anyone thinks about it. that the love I have for X is nothing but true unconditional love. Look at our story. Really look at it. And you can’t think that. I love you X. Until then that I die and that I see you again. #Ripdmx #doglove #ruffryders #family “
Irv caught the heat for his interview, especially since the official cause of death from DMX has not been disclosed by the medical examiner’s office and his family has yet to confirm details of the reports surrounding his death. While other outlets have reported that X reportedly overdosed which led to his death, Irv’s new details of the situation have rubbed some people the wrong way.
