DMX’s 10-Year-Old Daughter To Release Docuseries On Drug Addiction Awareness: I’m Ready To Have The Conversation That Some Adults Aren’t Even Ready To Have

DMX’s young daughter wants people to “show love and say no to drugs!”

Sonovah Hillman Jr., the daughter of late rap mogul DMX, is an independent producer raising money for a four-part docuseries set to bring awareness to drug addiction and the synthetic opioid, fentanyl, which has caused countless deaths in the U.S. over the past decade. In a YouTube video for the upcoming project, Sonovah Hillman Jr. talks about how drugs played a part in her losing loved ones. The 10-year-old states:

“I lost my aunt and uncle to a fentanyl overdose and my dad to a drug addiction.”

As you may know, DMX’s death, on April 9, 2021, shocked the nation after he died at the age of 50 from a reported cocaine-induced heart attack. Reportedly, DMX’s drug addiction started in the mid-1990s when he was only 14 years old after he was allegedly given a blunt laced with crack by mentor and rapper Ready Ron.

During Sonovah Hillman Jr.’s YouTube video, she continues:

“Fentanyl is affecting every gender, race, class and age group.”

Sonovah shares that the Drug Abuse Resistance Education program (DARE) inspired her to make a change:

“After the DARE program came to my school and did a 10-week cirriculum on drugs and drug addiction, I saw a clip of Master P on TikTok.”

She then explains:

“I started watching old interviews of my dad talking about his drug addiction. I wanted to talk to other kids whose parents have died from an overdose or are still currently using.”

After announcing the four-part docuseries being in the works, she says:

“I wanted to talk to people about their experience, trauma, feelings, and come up with the solution to healing.”

She continues:

“I’m ready to have the conversation that some adults aren’t even ready to have and try to find out the answer we all want to know: what can we do to help our loved ones to get clean and stay clean?”

She adds:

“My goal is to educate, spread awareness and save lives. This is a topic that I’m very passionate about. I know that I’m just a kid but I believe that I can make a difference.” 

Since then, Sonovah’s GoFundMe page, which has a goal to raise a quarter of a million dollars, has received over $2,200. The California native’s GoFundMe description reads:

“Hello, my name is Sonovah Hillman Jr. I’m a 10-year-old who has lost multiple family members to fentanyl and drug addiction. I felt like I had to do something to help this crisis. I came up with the idea to do a four-part docuseries on fentanyl and drug addiction. I want to show the world the point of view from a child’s perspective. I know that others are going through some of the same things. I want to reach out and ask for assistance with some of the production costs to get started. These funds will be used for pre and post-production. All donations are greatly appreciated and will help me get closer to my goal of educating, spreading awareness, and saving lives. #Fenta-NAW”
