It’s a sad day for the culture.
Rap legend D.M.X. passed away at the age of 50. The hip-hop community was praying hard for a miracle, but the universe had bigger plans.
D.M.X.’s Ruff Ryder crew shared special messages on social media. Swizz Beatz vowed to keep the “X Got’ Give It To Ya’ rapper’s name alive. He’s sad that his good friend is gone but at peace, because he’s no longer in pain. Take a look:
“I’m truly beyond devastated !!!!!! But I’m so happy my brother is no longer in pain. I watched him take everyone’s pain and make it his own I send my love and support to his entire family. My brother, we will never let them forget your name, and you will live forever F.A.M.E. Long live King DMX THE GREAT AKA my brother 4 Life Earl Simmons.”
Eve also shared a message and said she knows D.M.X. is finally at peace. She says he was one of the “most special people” she’s ever met.
“My dog X, I know that you are in the place of peace you deserve. I will be forever grateful to have known you. You were one of the most special people I have ever met. Full of humor, talent, wisdom,honesty and love, and most of all, loyalty. This world has lost a REAL ONE, but the heavens have gained an ANGEL. May you Rest.”
C.E.O. of Ruff Ryders, Waah Dean, also shared beautiful words. He said,
“Forever, my brother. May God bless you and take you into his paradise. You will always be my brother for life. Let’s celebrate the dog for all the work he put in here. My dog for life. R.R.”
