New York State Honors DMX With “Earl ‘DMX’ Simmons” Day On December 18th

DMX gets his own day in New York.

The former Ruff Ryders rapper will be remembered by many worldwide as a Hip Hop legend. Even as the rapper was laid to rest on Saturday, April 24, many fans found it hard to believe that DMX was no longer alive. Still, the memory of the rapper and his many contributions to Hip Hop stands as evidence of a life well-lived.

To commemorate this life, the state of New York is declaring the late rapper’s birthday, December 18, as “Earl ‘DMX’ Simmons Day.” Erica Ford made the announcement at the rapper’s funeral. The New York state flag that was flying on the day of X’s death was also presented to the family of the rapper by Ford, who said, “his lyrics were also rapped on the Senate floor by Senator Jamal Bailey who introduced a legislative resolution alongside Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins in his honor.”

Friends and family gathered on Saturday to pay their last respects to DMX, who died on April 9 after suffering a heart attack. The heart attack reportedly came after a drug overdose, the effects of which left the rapper in a vegetative state for the duration of a week leading up to his death.

The 50-year-old rap icon was open about his struggle with drug addiction. Nevertheless, his family and friends prioritized his legacy and contributions rather than his struggles.

The rapper’s 9-year-old daughter, Aaliyah expressed this during the memorial, “It makes me sad that my dad will never be able to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ ever to me again…..I know my dad is in heaven. Even though he can’t talk back, I know I can still talk to him. I think it’s good that I get to call my dad a legend. Rest easy, dad.”

There were similar tributes from several of his 15 children. Fellow celebrities also poured out tributes at the rapper’s memorial service held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. While the Ruff Ryders gathered on the stage for an emotional tribute, Kanye West and his choir basically brought the house down.

In addition, rapper Jadakiss reflected on DMX’s legacy in an emotional tribute. “Y’all know this is a big hit for us. The world know the Dog but we know a different Dog. When he comes to the town, he’s much different than the one they see on TV. It’s hurts anytime you lose a soldier but this one hurts different because he was the main piece on the board,” he said.

Other tributes came from Kasseem “Swizz Beatz” Dean, Russell Simmons, DMX’s ex-wife Tashera Simmons.

DMX In Vegetative State After Overdosing On Drugs

DMX is in a vegetative state at a New York hospital following a drug overdose.

The New York rap legend reportedly overdosed on drugs at his home on Friday night at approximately 11 pm. TMZ reported that he was rushed to a hospital in White Plains, New York, where he is currently admitted to the critical care unit. While some sources are saying he has some level of brain activity, doctors are cautioning that he might not make it as he remains in a vegetative state.

DMX drug overdose also reportedly triggered a heart attack. The former Ruff Ryders frontman has battled drug abuse for many years and has even opened up about how he believed he became addicted to drugs as early as age 14.

“I didn’t smoke cigarettes, I didn’t smoke weed, I didn’t do anything, I’m 14-years-old,” DMX recalls in an interview. The rap icon revealed that he was at a birthday party when his close friend tried to pass him a blunt which he refused because he didn’t smoke.

“He came back with a blunt rolled up. And as I’m counting the money, he passed the blunt,” X said while adding that it was Ready Ron who passed him the blunt that time, and he obliged and took it. “I was no longer focused on the money. I’ve never felt like this. It just f***ed me up,” he said.

DMX questioned why his close friend would do something like that to someone he looked up to and revealed that a monster was born that day, something he called a blessing and a curse. The blessing be it likely helped him to become one of the most successful and recognized names in hip hop of all time, and the curse being his lifelong battle with substance abuse.

In February 2016, DMX overdosed on drugs where he became unconscious and was rushed to a hospital. In that incident, police officers had to administer CPR because the rapper had no pulse when they arrived on the scene. DMX associates denied that the incident was too placed.

In October 2019, DMX checked himself into rehab following another relapse. He had been doing good since that rehab stint but has apparently relapse once again.

If I move on I still love you

[Verse 1]
Doin ya wrong, Doin ya bad
Doin you wrong, doin ya bad, I done fucked up
All that love I had for you I had it tucked up
All in my mind, I’ve been trippin thinking about the rewind
You done moved on to a new kind, damn I took to long
That’s my bad, that’s my fault, [?]

I can live without you but I’m goin to be sad

But these n might finesse you

I knew you was the one for me cause I’m in love with first impressions
I know you is not a priest but can you please sing my confessions
When I seen you for the first time you look like an angel out of heaven
You a 10 not a 7, in New York not 11
And if I have a daughter imma name her Angelina, middle name coral, last name McCollum
When she turn 16 Imma buy her a Beamer
Her grandmother need her, she don’t play either
And I hope that baby have your features
That’s a beautiful creature

I don’t want, you to move on, No
But girl if you do, i still love you

[Verse 1: The Game]
Walkin’ outta JFK in my all black Champion hood
7 5/8 Yankee fitted, what’s good?
Hop in the Range Rover with Styles P and Kiss
Roll the window down while I’m lightin’ my spliff
Turn on Hot 97 and I cock my brim
Razor blade in my cheek, got a snub in my Timbs
And I’m feelin’ like M.O.P
Diddy run the city but {?} where the crown stay
Just like you carry him through Brooklyn
Them Queensbridge killers still got shook ones
On the FDR weavin’ through traffic
And the homie Nas know I’m still bangin’ Illmatic
Like it’s ’94 I reign supreme like the crime lords
City arms raised like the Phantom suicide doors
Flip Mode, Terror Squad, Bird Gang, D-Block
Just a few of my niggas but you might know em by the

[Verse 2: Jadakiss]
This is somethin’ you had to get used to, truthful
Me? I’m neutral, but I’ll still shoot you
Jumpin’ out the Jag with a rocket
Na, I ain’t thinkin’ about the flag in your pocket
Cock it, never was a thing to pull it
I bang for real, meaning I do my thang with bullets
So I can’t sleep ’til I know it’s your memorial
Usually over a bitch, but this is territorial
Turf war, knife wounds they hurt more
Come in the building, you won’t make it past the first floor
These young niggas is poppin’ on sight
Ghetto birds, all you hear is the choppers all night
And “Who got shot?”, “Who got stabbed?”
Either that or “Who got knocked?”, “Who got bagged?”
Outside the ratchets, inside is the hawk
Real talk is what it is, The Gangs of New York
What?

Gangs in New York

Lil’ Duke – Alone Lyrics

[Intro]
Yeah (I ain’t ever felt so alone)
[?] (I ain’t ever felt so alone)
Yeah (Get it)
I ain’t ever felt so alone
I ain’t ever felt so alone (For real)
I ain’t ever felt so alone (Nah)
I ain’t ever felt so alone
I ain’t ever felt so alone (Let’s go)

[Verse 1]
I ain’t ever felt so alone
Tryna get to the top of the throne
Run up my money and buy me a home
They see it in me, they know what I’m on
I gotta stick to the code
All this pain, but nobody knows
In the streets and I know how it go
Do this shit for my mama and bro, oh
Bet you wanna see me dead
Bet you wanna see me lose
Hope I go out, I refuse
Already paid all my dues
I’m givin’ bitches the blues
Dickin’ ’em down by the twos
Bossin’, so I pick and choose
And I’m right back on my grind
And I’m not wastin’ no time
f*ckin’ on nothin’ but dimes
I got ’em fallin’ in line
So sick and tired of the waitin’
It’s my time, but I gotta be patient
It’s a lot, so you can’t be impatient
Now look at all of they faces
I’m givin’ back like a charity
All of my diamonds got clarity
Bad bitches stop and they stare at me
Not cocky, not tryna be arrogant
I was on tour gettin’ head on the bus
Now a nigga still runnin’ ’round gettin’ racks in a rush

[Chorus]
And I’m just doin’ my thing
You already know what I bang
Don’t need no new friends, I’m not tryna hang
Niggas get money in change
I got my bag, stayed the same
Do whatever you got to maintain
Will do better, just stay in your lane

[Verse 2]
Flew out to Cali, I flew to New York
Got me a strap and I jumped off the porch
She gonna ride on that dick like a horse
Jumped in the ‘Rari, I’m smashin’ the horses

Everything be exotic, we in them Lambos and Porches
What I come in, they cannot afford
Pretty lil’ bitch with me, gorgeous, facts
Everything I spit be real
Gotta keep workin’, not signin’ no deal

[Chorus]
And I’m just doin’ my thing
You already know what I bang
Don’t need no new friends, I’m not tryna hang
Niggas get money in change
I got my bag, stayed the same
Do whatever you got to maintain
Will do better, just stay in your lane

[Verse 3]
I ain’t ever felt so alone
Niggas, they act like they with you
None of these niggas ain’t real
Just [?] on a hundred, be real
I gotta get it by any means
And ain’t no havin’, no in-between
And I’m not drinkin’ no green
I cannot drink anything
They done got me in my zone
I’m in this bitch, caught a vibe
Niggas ain’t real, tellin’ lies
And you flawed, I can see it in your eyes
I will not stop, I’m still workin’
Your bitch on my bed and she lurkin’
Nothin’, but she wasn’t worthless
In my own lane, doin’ my own thing
None of these niggas the same
Realness, it run through my veins
I can’t be f*ckin’ with lames
Gave her a heart and left with a chain
I swear to God I ain’t told
Sellin’ your soul for a watch and a chain
I’m goin’ up like a ladder
Some food, put your ass on a platter
Lean, it is all on my bladder
If it ain’t ’bout no money, don’t matter
p*ssy, your brain gon’ get splattered

[Chorus]
And I’m just doin’ my thing
You already know what I bang
Don’t need no new friends, I’m not tryna hang
Niggas get money in change
I got my bag, stayed the same
Do whatever you got to maintain
Will do better, just stay in your lane
