Ruff Ryders Pay Tribute to DMX on 3rd Anniversary of His Passing:

The visit to DMX's gravesite comes a year after the Ruff Ryders organized a "Ryde Out" event in remembrance of the rapper on the second anniversary of his passing.

DMX, born Earl Simmons, tragically succumbed to a cocaine-induced heart attack in April 2021. Following a reported drug overdose, he was rushed to a hospital in White Plains, New York, where he was placed on life support before passing away seven days later. His death served as a somber reminder of the struggles he faced with substance abuse throughout his life.

During his memorial service at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, close friend and collaborator Swizz Beatz lamented the lack of support shown to DMX during his lifetime. Despite the outpouring of love and appreciation after his passing, Swizz Beatz emphasized the importance of celebrating artists like DMX while they are still alive.

As the hip-hop community continues to mourn the loss of DMX, his music and legacy remain timeless, serving as a beacon of authenticity and resilience for generations to come.
