DMX was an absolute masterclass in using words to convey a feeling. For this writer, that fact makes it extremely difficult to find something to say about the late rap legend that hasn’t already been said by his peers in the music industry.
When the world learned of DMX’s passing last week, some of the biggest names in music posted their thoughts, feelings, and prayers to social media. In a strange way, those posts help us all cope with his loss. Here are some that stood out for us.
Rest in power, X.
Even though you had battles you TOUCHED so many through your MUSIC and when you would PRAY so many people FELT THAT! This is heavy for the HipHop family but your LEGACY LIVES ON & your SPIRIT. Continued Prayers for X family & friends for STRENGTH/HEALING?? pic.twitter.com/ZI9NI6Nslg
