It's not looking good for DMX.  The rap legend remains in a coma after ODing and suffering multiple heart attacks on Friday.

TMZ caught up with Master P and asked him about X.  He had an interesting answer.

"DMX is an icon.  I just hate that we have to wait for something to happen to one of us before everybody really starts saying how much we care and love you. We got to figure out how to prevent that. The truth hurts.  Drugs have killed a lot of our great ones. It's sent a lot of them to prison. I'm praying for DMX and his family. I hope that people start celebrating these icons while they're alive. Imagine all the stuff that we could have prevented for DMX by helping him. I feel like Hip Hop needs some type of union. The NBA has it. What happens when a guy falls off after he done sold millions and millions of records? We need that.

I think it starts with education. I want to really start educating our people and letting them see that-- even LeBron and KD, Kyrie Irving, everybody that represents Black Lives Matter, when the NBA talks about they're putting money back into HBCUs, I want to see where that money go at," he continued. "The education that we can invest in the next generation, we can prevent this. If you look at all the heroes and stars that we lost-- I mean, hopefully, God turns this around and DMX comes back to us. Let's see if the people that's out here that's making noise for him be there for him."

Do you think a union could have saved DMX?
