RIP DMX. No one radiated more agony, pain, and atomic energy. The Cerberus from Yonkers, who suffered for all of our sins and his own. Maybe the rawest rapper of all-time, no pretense or frills, just pure adrenaline, lawless genius, and reckless abandon. The struggle incarnate. pic.twitter.com/P80t1GQHEa

I hadn't posted anything because I was hoping you'd pull thru
I had the honor of @hypewilliams inviting me to chill on the set of "BELLY" for the scene at Justin's and in The Tunnel. You were the hungriest nigga in New York at the time and destined for stardom
