I have Never been a fan of cRap music. Feel bad for the rest of his Family but in the end he Did this to himself. Drugs caused his death as unfortunate as it is. Seems like Way to many stars get wrapped up in drugs and alcohol, it then leads to their deaths. Shame but it is what happens when they get Famous.

Yes, he did do that to himself. No one forces you to do illegal drugs. He payed with his life.

“Music?” Rap still sounds like Crap, and as a musician, I’m offended that it’s referred to as “Music.”

What a SHOCK. One of the 7% of the 13% died of a drug overdose. Sounds like g. floyd does it not. As long as the 7% of the 13% keep acting and doing what they do it will not be long before the 7% are gone and then the USA can start to heal. Then the crime rate will drop drastically and few citizens and cops will harmed or forced to kill or shot one.

He was a human. I doubt if you had met him. We are all God’s children regardless of his lifestyle (which we know nothing about) Judge not lest you be judged.

Most STARS are indeed very talented people. Whether one appreciates RAP is not the issue here. He was a human life that God loves. He also was loved by millions of his fans. R.I.P. Earl.

I Hate Rap Music, but I’m an old white dude, give me the Alman Brothers, Clapton, Van Morrison, Zepplin, Dylan, etc…
I am sorry DMC killed himself, we can’t judge others, we don’t know his mindset, and I’m sure his family is hurting, God Bless them!
