DMX previously delivered a prayer at one of Kanye West’s Sunday Service events in May 2019 and spoke to GQ about the experience.
“I wouldn’t call it a church service,” he said. “There’s no word. It’s joyful, which God says to do. We about to make a joyful noise. I enjoyed it. It was moving. I didn’t know what to expect, though.”
Kim Kardashian filmed DMX’s prayer and shared the video on her Twitter account at the time.
“I’m truly beyond devastated !!!!!!” he said. “But I’m so happy my brother is no longer in pain . I watched him take everyone’s pain and make it his own. I send my love and support to his entire family. My brother we will never let them forget your name and you will live forever F.A.M.E. Long live King DMX THE GREAT AKAmy brother 4 Life Earl Simmons. Damn Dog.”
Dark Man X was scheduled to perform in Texas on May 29, but the show is now being turned into a special tribute concert according to TMZ. Justin — owner of the Wildcatter Saloon venue in Katy — is hoping to book someone who was close to DMX, with Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes and Trae Tha Truth being listed as potential names.
