According to TMZ, DMX’s family has debunked theories about the late rapper’s masters, finances, and merchandise. The family discussed a now-viral rumor that Jay-Z and Beyoncé were planning to buy DMX’s masters and regift them to his children. Multiple Twitter pages, including Phenomenal Reporters (@phenoreporters), spread the masters rumor.
This masters rumor has no basis, according to DMX’s family, and his masters “aren’t in play” with the music and business moguls. Def Jam owns several masters, but DMX’s masters are not specifically owned by Jay-Z, according to TMZ. Scammers soliciting money for funeral expenses and others selling DMX products should be avoided, according to the family. DMX’s family is not currently collecting funds or selling merchandise.
