*As theories continue to circulate prior to the official results of an autopsy surrounding the death of Prince Rogers Nelson, the recent involvement of the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration is reportedly placing drugs in the center of the probe.

According to TMZ, the DEA and the Minnesota Attorney General are looking at opiates in particular, and the prescriptions written for the musician; along with the possible connection of enablers.

Reportedly, TMZ sources say opiates may either be the sole ingredient or at least a significant factor in Prince’s death.

The two were front and center at Prince’s Paisley Park estate for an album release celebration of The Purple One’s Plectrumelectrum and Art Official Age projects two years ago. According to MTV, K. Dot and the musical icon did a live rendition of Prince’s 1998 melody “What’s My Name.”

“We got to a point where we were just talking in the studio and the more time that passed we realized we weren’t recording anything,” said Lamar. “We just ran out of time, it’s as simple as that.”
