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.
