    As someone who saw X in 99 in Sacramento with my best friend, it is bizarre to see his passing covered on MSNBC in 2021. RIP, my brother. You changed a lot of things for many people.

    I grew up to this man’s music and connected with it in so many ways. Growing up in the murder capital of America Camden, New Jersey. DMX’s words helped me get through all the struggles, fights, evil thoughts and addictions. May you rest in peace my Dog!

  20. I really felt this. Rest In Peace, DMX.
