According to GQ magazine, describes DMX was a larger-than-life presence, but he contained multitudes as well. The legendary rapper, who died on April 9 at the age of 50 after suffering a heart attack one week prior, became the biggest thing in hip-hop during the late 1990s because of his singular, sweeping appeal.
He was intense, unfiltered, and charming in his own unique way—which made him a supernova almost instantly upon his breakthrough in 1998. DMX’s willingness to unleash his range of emotions made him as phenomenal as he was antithetical, GQ stated.
“DMX So sad such an amazing person and artist. Last time I saw him we just talked about our kids all day. If anyone out there has a friend or family member that suffers from addiction don’t judge just show them love and support. Childhood Trauma is real” – Comedian and Actor Chris Rock
