“We are deeply saddened to announce today that our loved one, DMX, birth name of Earl Simmons, passed away at 50-years-old at White Plains Hospital with his family by his side after being placed on life support for the past few days. Earl was a warrior who fought till the very end. He loved his family with all of his heart, and we cherish the times we spent with him.

DMX’s daughter, Sasha, wrote a heartfelt post on Twitter. She acknowledged that her dad had a complicated life, but that’s what made him unique, and she never cared about what anyone thought of him. She wrote,
“Nothing will ever explain how I feel, how this all feels. My twin, I love you. There’s always been so many misconceptions about who the fuck you were but that didn’t matter because I knew who the fuck you were. Eternally grateful to have had you. I love you forever, dad.” Take a look:
