We’ve already mentioned a few times about how legendary rapper DMX passed away on Friday and most people have been sharing happy memories of the guy, but there always has to be one person who wants to be different.

This time it was fellow rapper The Game who bizarrely decided to tweet the following ‘tribute’ to DMX which kind of made his death all about The Game and also sort of blasted all DMX’s fans at the same time. Not bad for about 15 words:
Niggas really gotta die to get love. If I can’t feel it while I’m here, keep it. #RIPDMX

Yeah that’s quite a weird thing to tweet after someone has just died right? Needless to say his tone deaf tweet didn’t go down too well and he was loudly rinsed by most of the internet:
DMX got love while he was here. We think you’re lame. Feel that. https://t.co/cRSQkumR7S

DMX was showed love everyday. He even acknowledged back in February that he lived a good life
“If I was to drop dead right now, my last thought would be: I’ve lived a good life.” – DMX, February 2021 https://t.co/4RZvRQAuM5

X was celebrated fully when he was here so if this is about you, I wouldn’t hold my breath. https://t.co/mxHO7uVxdc

Savage, although I guess you can’t really blame people here because The Game’s original tweet was remarkably insensitive and stupid. When are people going to stop co-opting the death’s of others and trying to make it about them instead? Probably not any time soon by the looks of things. RIP DMX.
