 10 Heartwarming Stories About DMX

DMX will be remembered for his soul-bearing music, unwavering sincerity, and the demons that followed him for much of the late rapper’s 50 years on of life. But he also carved out a niche for himself as what one Twitter user astutely dubbed “The Bill Murray of Hip-Hop,” a charming figure always popping up in places you’d never expect. Though the darker side of X came across in his violent, at times controversial lyrics, the person many recalled in the aftermath of his death was a figure of light and benevolence.

Stories of encounters with DMX have been shared widely by fellow artists, movie co-stars, and regular people whose days were made a little brighter by running into Earl Simmons. In these anecdotes, he comes off as sweet, excitable and compassionate — someone who was more in tune with everyday people than your average A-lister.
