Irv Gotti received major backlash online for some controversial comments he made towards the late DMX.
During an interview, Irv shared that DMX died from an overdose on “bad crack,” but has since apologized for those comments. In a lengthy Instagram post, Irv expresses his love and admiration for X and explains he didn’t mean any harm by his comments.
“1st off. Let me say again. How much I love my n***a X. The fact that this is coming into Question is the only reason why I feel the need to address the bullshit,” Gotti wrote in his post. “I love X and love him Unconditionally and that won’t change til I die. Dog Love.”
The post continue, “now everything I said. Had already been reported in the media. If you look back at @balleralert and @theshaderoom and other media outlets. everything I said had been out there already. I did not break anything I said. But you know what. I understand. No one wanted to hear it from me. And for that I am truly sorry.”
“Again. I apologize for talking out of turn,” Gotti added. “In my defense. I honestly thought I wasn’t saying anything that everyone didn’t hear already. If anyone thinks the love I have for X is nothing but genuine unconditional love. Just look at our history. Really look at it. And there is no way you can think that. Love you X. Until I die and see you again. ”
50 Cent chimed in and called Irv an “idiot” for his comments. Hopefully Irv’s Instagram post clears up any confusion.
