DMX passed away over two weeks ago as fans of the hip-hop legend continue to show love and stream his music. It’s also been confirmed that his funeral will take place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on April 24. A private memorial will also take place for his family somewhere in NYC on April 25.
Last week, X’s fiancée, Desiree Simmons, revealed that she had gotten a tattoo in tribute to him. This was an “X” symbol that also read “Dog Love.” Now, she is taking to social media to explain how much he meant to her and even reminisced on the first night they met. This IG post also included a photo of the two together during a night out.
“The first night we met and you held me close, I knew I would never let go. I was lost in you and nothing else mattered. My best friend, my baby, my love…truly my everything. Thank you for us. Thank you for Exodus. Thank you God for Earl Simmons…forever X.”
This past week, DMX’s “The Best Of DMX” album also debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart. 77,000 units were sold and streams were up by 544% for this project. The Best Of DMX also marks his seventh top two album of X’s career. The No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 went to Taylor Swift’s “Fearless,” as that is her ninth consecutive No. 1 album.
