Following the tragic passing of beloved rapper DMX also known as Earl Simmons, his former mentor Ready Ron has officially spoken out against claims that he laced weed with crack without his knowledge or consent!
Prior to his passing DMX recalled the incident taking pace one night after they had robbed someone and split the money reports Hot97.
“…It was his birthday, and we came back and split the money. I said, ‘Here you go, go get something nice for your birthday.’ So he came back with a blunt rolled up, and I’m counting the money, he pass[ed] the blunt,’‘ recalled DMX.
He continues,“I’ve never felt like this; it just fed me up. I later found out that he laced the blunt with crack. Why would you do that to a child? He knew I looked up to him. Why would you do that to somebody who looks up to you? A monster was born. I wouldn’t do that to my worst enemy. Especially to someone that you supposedly love.”
Ron has recent come forward since the rapper’s passing to deny the claims in saying that though he has nothing bad to say about DMX but the circulated story is untrue.
“How was I 30 years old in 1985 and he was 14? And he and I are only three years apart. You [have to] remember, just because somebody is world-famous doesn’t mean they’re always honest. And I’ve got nothing bad to say about him but you gotta stop lying on me.”
“We were kids, and we were getting high back then; I wasn’t the one to expose him to crack.”
