Legendary DJ FunkMaster has spoken out about music industry friends that he believes could’ve helped iconic rapper DMX in his time of need!
As we previously reported DMX is currently on life support following a drug overdose he experienced on Friday.
Flex believes that despite his major industry friends knowing the traumatic experiences DMX endured paired with the drug demons he battled no one helped him.
“The music business is a gorilla. It’s a bottomless pit of happiness or depression,” Flex tells Page Six, “I don’t wanna say people don’t help you but I do want to say there are people who actually know [when a star is struggling, but don’t help] sometimes.”
“You don’t always get the best help when money is being made. It’s rough for someone like a DMX who may be in a mental and emotional state of childhood trauma that has happened to him and then being thrown into the money and fame.”
He continues, “I know he shares his demons and we may have to amplify that demon and amplify his story and his feelings so that the next generation can kind of see a little better, a little clearer.”
Flex admits that he’s frustrated by celebrities that rushed to social media to share pictures of them alongside DMX but haven’t shown any means of support within his darkest hour.
“People can find the picture… that they had with the person that’s going through a tragedy in 30 seconds, but you haven’t called that person in 10 years.”
He continues, “Let me see the picture of you when you went afterwards to his house because you was so concerned. I never see that picture where they go to the house. Nipsey Hussle passed away and every washed up rapper made a pilgrimage to LA to go to the Marathon store to take a picture or to get their cards swiped. Bro Nipsey needed that support when he was alive.”
