Rapper DMX is still in the Intensive Care Unit, after suffering a massive heart attack – and may pass away any day now. When he transitions into the afterlife, many in hip hop are planning a HUGE tribute to the legendary rapper.
But not everyone is singing DMX’s praises and ready to usher him into hip hop’s Hall of Fame.
MTO News has learned that there’s a growing chorus of feminists and LGBT activists who not only want to shine a light on some of DMX’a lyrics, but are pushing to have him “cancelled.”
The activists are concerned that some lyrics from DMX songs may be considered homophobic and anti-woman.
The activists appear to be focusing on two of DMX songs in particular. First the hit song “X Is Coming,” a hardcore rap that graphically details a rapist’s warnings that he will seek vengeance.
The lyrics describe the rapper raping an underage girl:
“And if you got a daughter older than 15, I’m [going to] rape her,” DMX intones. “Take her, on the living room floor, right there in front of you/ D*ck action seriously, what you wanna do?/ Frustrating isn’t it? Wanna kill me, but I’m [going to] kill you/ Now watch me f*ck just a lil’ while longer please, will you?”

Another song with controversial lyrics is his hit song “Where The Hood At.” In it, DMX appears to make disparaging remarks against gay and trans men. Here are some o the lyrics:
Last I heard, y’all niggas was havin sex, with the same sex
I show no love, to homo thugs
Empty out, reloaded and throw more slugs
How you gonna explain f*cking a man?
Even if we squashed the beef, I ain’t touching ya hand
I don’t bunk with chumps, for those who been to jail
That’s the cat with the Kool-Aid on his lips and pumps
I don’t f*ck with n*ggas that think they broads
Only know how to be one way, that’s the dog
MTO News confirmed that the LGBT and feminist communities are mobilizing a “Cancel DMX” campaign on Twitter, and it’s picking up steam.
