“X”, and fans came to honor the hip-hop icon. His posthumous album, Exodus, which featured collabs with “Jay-Z, Nas, Moneybagg Yo, Swizz Beatz, The Lox, and more” was released on May 28.
The BET Awards, which aired in July 2021, ended with a powerful celebration of life. The tribute to DMX was a highlight of the show, with powerful performances from Busta Rhymes, Method Man, Swizz Beatz, Griselda, and Michael K. Williams honoring the late rapper. Through his most famous songs, latest record, and spoken word prayer, the tribute was as raw and beautiful as X himself.
The tribute showed the range of X’s career and the professional journey he underwent, told through frequent collaborators and friends who knew X since the beginning.
