DMX is survived by his 15 kids. The rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, welcomed his 15th child, a boy, in 2016.
DMX made Baby Gaga’s list of rappers with the most children, alongside WuTang’s Ol’ Dirty Bastard, who fathered 13 kids before he died, and Moneybagg Yo, who has at least eight kids, according to the report.
According to Rolling Out, the rapper had two children with his ex-girlfriend Yadira Borrego and one with Monique Wayne. Not much is known about his other kids. As for whether or not all of DMX’s kids know one another, he said that some do and others don’t.
“Some of them have met others. I ain’t a total piece of sh*t. I ain’t have kids in the same county. Yeah, I slipped up. I got a few in New York; I got a few in Cali,” DMX previously said, according to Rolling Out.
For the most part, DMX’s kids stay completely out of the spotlight.
