DMX will always remain one of the most popular rappers in the history of the Hip-Hop world and his influence will be remembered forever. The rapper passed away after being hospitalized due to an apparent drug overdose last month. The Hip Hop world is still mourning his loss and that includes Lil Wayne.
The rapper recently performed at Trillerfest in Miami on May 1st. During the performance he also paid tribute to DMX by remembering the Cash Money/Ruff Ryders tour.
Wayne recalled the great memories he made with DMX during the early 2000s tour.
“When I was a younger kid, we used to be on tour a lot right, like six months out the year. We used to have so many artists, we didn’t have to have no opening acts ’cause we just needed another record label, and it was just us and them. So back then we went on this tour called The Cash Money/Ruff Ryders Tour. See, being from New Orleans, it’s so far away from New York and Cali and shit like that. We didn’t know if it was real when we seen it on TV, the New York guys, the LA people. So when we saw DMX, we all fell in love.”
“But when I got on tour with him, and now you’re in the hotel lobby, you’re backstage, you run across a n-gga and he actually say something to you, and when you see this n-gga talk like how he rap, and you see this n-gga is what he is, and you see this n-gga got a zillion dogs with him, then a zillion dogs with him, it’s impossible not to be obsessed, infatuated, muthafuckin’ impressed, whatever. Ladies and gentleman, please make some noise for the late, great DMX.”
The Hip Hop world will continue to mourn the passing of DMX as it is unlikely he will ever be replaced. We hope that wherever DMX is right now, he is in peace. The rapper’s legacy will continue to live on in his family and fans forever.
