Too soon? Not for Saturday Night Live! Rapper DMX, who died on Friday (April 9) after having a heart attack brought on by a drug overdose, came up early on in the show, during the program's cold open segment April 10.
In the bit, Kenan Thompson, Ego Nwodim, Kate McKinnon and Alex Moffat played four Minnesota anchors discussing the Derek Chauvin trial for the death of George Floyd, and racial inequities in the justice system during a news segment.
Unable to come to an agreement after much back and forth, McKinnon's Joanne changed the subject. "We lost royalty yesterday," she began, referencing the death of Prince Phillip, who died at age 99 on Friday, the same day as the Ruff Ryders MC.
