Swizz Beatz, who produced one of DMX’s most famous songs, ‘Ruff Ryders Anthem.’ His love for DMX was something beyond the fact that he was just working on hits. To Swizz Beatz, they were better brothers than friends. He commemorated DMX through Instagram, who passed away.
“DMX was different from others. He was a different type of artist, a different type of creativity, a different type of mind, a different type of soul,” Swizz said.
“I’ve seen DMX has lived his life for everyone else… I’ve never seen DMX with a Lamborghini, I’ve never seen DMX with a Rolls-Royce, and I’ve never seen him wear expensive jewelry. DMX didn’t care about it at all.”
“DMX worried about the people around him before taking care of himself. I’ve never seen anyone like him in my life. Do you know why DMX hurts? Because he took everyone’s pain and made it his.”
Together, DMX and Swizz Beatz helped make the Ruff Ryders one of the most vital labels in 90s hip-hop.
Many stars worldwide, from basketball player LeBron James to Ja Morant, are celebrating DMX through various videos and social media posts.
