While Hip-Hop mourns the loss of Rap titan DMX, the scammers are afoot. Dark Man X’s family is telling fans to beware of those using his death for a cash windfall.

According to the family, anyone saying they’re raising money for funeral costs is trying to pull a fast one.

Reports TMZ:

So please, before you share any suspect info, do some research first. Case in point, this tweet below has become a meme about his Jay-Z and Beyonce copped DMX’s masters and will give him to the kids. First of all, it’s been widely reported that X has 15 children, not 17, so that should be the first red flag. As for buying masters, that’s not something that can be done in a week’s time.
