It’s so sad to hear about the passing of DMX. He was a true legend to the hip-hop community. I was individually inspired by him from his unique style. I remember touring and being on a lot of shows with him. One day I was coming out of my hotel and DMX saw me and asked, 'was his child’s mother pulling me back?' 'Pulling Me Back' was my latest record at that time for the ladies. I used to date his child’s mom and he knew that but he was cool. It never was an issue because he knew it was before him. He always showed me love and we always talked when we ran into each other. I’m saddened to hear about his passing and he will forever be missed by me and the hip-hop community for his legacy. - Chingy
