DMX’s Estate Reportedly Worth Less Than $1 Million

The late and great rapper DMX may have left behind an estate worth as little as $50k, according to recent court documents.

Five of X’s fifteen children have now involved themselves in two separate court filings in attempts to become administrators of their father’s estate. On May 10th, sisters Sasha Simmons and Jada Oden submitted their documents together, while brothers Xavier, Tacoma, and Sean came together to submit documents on May 21st, the NY Daily News reported.

Although it is unclear at this time how each party is conducting their calculations, the brothers’ filing estimates DMX’s estate to be worth less than a million, while the sisters value their father’s estate at a startling number below $50,000.

Considering DMX’s impressive career in hip hop and film, it is hard to imagine how he could have come to a place of such financial instability. However, like many unfortunate stars who struggle with their personal demons despite the benefits of fame and money, X was known to have suffered from addiction and lingering trauma from his childhood.

Despite landing five consecutive No. 1 albums from 1998-2003, the rapper continued to abuse drugs and found himself behind bars or in court-mandated drug rehabilitation more than a few times. In 2018, he was convicted for tax evasion and sentenced to time in prison.

Addiction frequently leads to financial trouble, even for those making the insane amount of money going around at the top tier of the rap world. Additionally, X was once charged with failure to pay $400k in child support. While representatives for his children declined to comment on their court filings, it is likely that they are not only looking to secure control of his current assets but also any future earnings.

DMX hits continue to pull in money, and his posthumous album, Exodus, featuring songs recorded shortly before his death, is due to be released on May 28th.

DMX’s 8-year-old Daughter To Be Featured On “Exodus” Album

Fans around the world are still coming to terms with the fact that DMX is no longer with us.

Many remember the icon’s life as a source of inspiration that has permeated generations of artists. One of the highlights of his “Celebration of Life” in April was when his daughter took the mic and delivered her own version of “Slippin”. Her rendition put a smile on otherwise gloomy faces. What made her performance even more touching was her opening words. “My dad taught me to be strong. I learned so much from him, so I dedicate this song to him,” she said at the time.

Those heartfelt lyrics performed by 8-year-old Sonovah Hillman Jr. has led to a boost in her fledgling rap career as she’s been asked to contribute two collaborations on her late father’s upcoming posthumous album.

Hillman shared this and more during a recent interview with NBC’s Dallas Fort Worth affiliate. She is as hard-working and enterprising as her dad as she revealed during the interview that she is currently working on 20 songs and has already released two of them. One is called “I Hate Zoom” and dropped in January. That track focuses on her deep distaste for virtual school, which has become the popular mode of delivery during the ongoing pandemic. It has a little over 6000 views on YouTube.

The other came out just last weekend, May 8, and is called “TikTok Kid”. That track also has an accompanying video. She’s already receiving love from fans as the video has passed 12,000 views on YouTube since its release.

DMX has always been about family, but when he was interviewed about features on his upcoming album, he mentioned collaborations with Pop Smoke, Lil Wayne, Griselda, and Bono. However, he never mentioned that his daughter might feature. She also shares another remarkable trait with her dad in that she writes all of her own lyrics. “Whatever is on my mind, I just write about it,” Hillman said during the interview.

Her mother, Sonovah Hillman, also shared that she’s noticed a lot of similarities between her daughter and DMX. She even thinks that they look a lot like each other. “Sometimes she looks just like him depending on the angle you catch her. She has a lot of his traits as far as an artist. Writing is easy for her,” she added. The young rapper also shared that she has very similar aspirations to her father. “Rapping makes me feel powerful. Someday I want to own a mansion with 15 bedrooms,” she continued.

Hillman Jr. also recalled one of her favorite moments with her dad before he passed away, which was a beach trip in Miami in February. “It was fun. I just miss him and I’m kind of sad we won’t have more memories,” Hillman said.

She also shared what her favorite track from her dad was. “My favourite song of his is ‘Party Up (Up in Here).’ He was happy when I told him I wanted to rap,” she added.

According to DMX’s Twitter account, the official release date of his posthumous album Exodus is set for May 28. It will be his eighth studio album. It’s expected to be on streaming platforms on the date mentioned above. It will be executive produced by Swizz Beatz and will be released on Def Jam records.

In a press release, Swizz talked about DMX’s impact, saying:

“My brother X was one of the most pure and rare souls I’ve ever met. He lived his life dedicated to his family and music. Most of all, he was generous with his giving and loved his fans beyond measure. This album, X couldn’t wait for his fans all around the world to hear and show just how much he valued each and every single person that has supported him unconditionally.”

It seems his legacy will live on.

REMY MA – Another One lyrics

Heard you callin’ everyone
Now call ’em back, ’cause I got another one
Heard you was kiddin’, sayin’ I ain’t havin’ none
But that’s okay baby, ’cause now you my son
They like, “Yo, Rem go in again”
My flow cold, her ink froze in the pen
You gotta go, you gotta go, lil hoe
I kick a dead horse till it don’t move
Don’t come around me, now I got the crown, see
I beat you with punches in 48, you Ronda Rousey
The wigs and nose, you a whole clown, B
I better not ever hear you say anything about me
I came from behind bars like a bottle girl
No candy bars, I raise the bar, I’m like a bodybuild
All blue Maserati, sawed-off lil shottie
Put blood in your head, leave your whole damn head red, Lil Yachty
Oh, and if you doubt that, you can catch me outside, bitch, how bout that?
When it’s dark and hell is hot, I’ll DM your ex
Sittin’ here now like, “Who I’ma DM next?”
I handle these bars like a BMX, Grrr
Get at me dog, DMX
And I’m waitin’ for a bitch to talk outta her neck
‘Cause we got pictures, we got videos, and we got texts

Already took a L, now you got another one
I secure the bag, now I got another one
I caught the W, now I got another one
Yo, what’s that shit you be sayin’, Khaled?
(Another one)
Already took a L, now you got another one
I secure the bag, now I got another one
I caught the W, now I got another one
Yo, what’s that shit you be sayin’, Khaled?

SonReal – No Warm Up

Locked down like Ye for three summers
Locked down like DMX when he peel out
Vroom vroom, you know I’m the only real out

Vancouver raised a boy to a man
From a hundred dollar show to a couple hundred grand
I write my music like a 12 year old who’s sitting in the stands
Cause that 12-year old was me when I was looking for my dad like
Chicka-bow-wow, chicka-bow-wow, run it
So if you see me walking, come and say "What’s up" to Sonny like
Run it, run it, run it

Before you climb the ladder try to find the stairs

Cold killers that blow triggers
You got niggas, but my niggas know your niggas
And what my niggas know ’bout your niggas they ho niggas
Oh no, and I call ’em "oh no" niggas ’cause the last thing them bitches said was, "oh no" nigga
You’re about to go, nigga

We gonna’ end it with the word, may God rest his soul
