DMX Talks Aaliyah, Naming His Daughter After Her

DMX reminisces about Aaliyah, as well as passing her name on.

It should come as no surprise that DMX continues to keep Aaliyah's name alive, as the multi-platinum rapper was known to be very close to the late R&B singer.

As such, X was interviewed on BET's 106 and Park, honoring the singer on the 10-year anniversary of her death.

When asked about his fondest memory of Aaliyah, DMX recalled, "It was one of the awards shows out in L.A. that we went to together. Me, her, and her brother, actually. Up until then, I had never went to any award show with anyone but my wife. I rented the convertible, Rolls Royce, and I just made the movie, you know? We had a good time."

Describing Aaliyah as talented and an "angel," X revealed a special tribute to the singer: the rapper named his youngest daughter Aaliyah.

"This is Aaliyah," said X, showing his daughter to fans. "That's how special she was to me."

"Know that you're named after an angel," added the Yonkers emcee, speaking to his daughter.

    Wait. You mean to tell me DMX (Who was obviously very close with this girl) was arrest EXACTLY 10 years after her death? I'm not one for conspiracies but that shit is crazy!!

    • Big Dan

      No disrespect, but you SHOULD be one for conspiracy if you are trying to suggest something here because you sound VERY crazy. What? you think the "conspirators" have Aaliyah's birthday in their database and they made sure to arrest DMX on that date (which, it was not the exact date by the way). You crazy. What should be mind blowing here is that as human beings, we are supposed to be evolving, yet DMX is still with the bum eesh ten years later. If their was a conspiracy, wouldn't they have gone for people much closer people.... Missy, Timbo, Ginuwine. R Kelly likes 'em song, so he was banging her when she was like 14, 15, Dame Dash was going out with her when she died. There are much bigger fries than loser DMX. I think she was in a movie with him, but basically, he was just someone else who's path crossed hers. No conspiracy there. The powers that be do not need to waste time with DMX, You just figure he'll OD one day, so why bother.
