DMX wrestled with drug addiction for most of his adult life and it ultimately killed him. The Ruff Ryders legend died at White Plains Hospital in April 2021 following a cocaine-induced heart attack. He left behind a fiancée and several children, including 10-year-old Sonovah Hillman Jr. In a video posted to her GoFundMe campaign website, Hillman revealed she’s making a docu-series centered on fentanyl and other illicit drugs. “I lost my aunt and uncle to a fentanyl overdose and my dad to a drug addiction,” Hillman said. “Fentanyl is affecting every gender, race, class, and age group. I wanted to talk to other kids whose parents had died from an overdose or are still currently using. I came up with the idea to do a four-part docuseries on fentanyl and drug addiction. I wanted to talk to people about their experience, trauma, and feelings and come up with a solution to healing.”
Hillman has an astronomical goal of $250,000 and so far, she’s only raised about $1,000. What sort of GoFundMe campaigns have you donated to?
