On April 9th, 2021, I’ve gotten word that legendary Yonkers MC DMX has passed away after being in the hospital for a week. The 50-year-old was in White Plains Hospital after an overdose that would leave him in a vegetative state. As hip hop fans, it seems we’re losing rappers every day, and for this to come only months after the passing of the legendary MF DOOM makes this sting even worse. Writing this only minutes after hearing the news; Im still and shock, and I don’t know what to do, but the only thing I can say is to appreciate every moment of life and take nothing for granted. For those who live in the Yonkers area like myself, I will keep everyone posted on vigils and tributes you can attend to pay your respects which I will also be present at.
Rest In Peace Earl “DMX” Simmons December 18th, 1970- April 9th 2021
