That love at first sight was confirmed when the Cash Money team actually met the late MC born Earl Simmons and realized that the man behind the growl lived up to the hype.
“But when I got on tour with him, now you in the hotel lobby, you in the backstage, you run across the n—- and he actually say something to you,” Wayne added. “And when you see this n—- talk like how he rap and you see this n—– is what he is, and you see this n—- got a zillion dogs with him, then a zillion dogs with him, it’s impossible not to be obsessed, infatuated, motherf—ing impressed, whatever. Ladies and gentlemen, please make some noise for the late great DMX!”
According to Revolt, Wayne then shouted out producer Beatz and dedicated Tha Carter V Beatz-produced song “Uproar” to his longtime musical companion and Ruff Ryders beat general.
DMX died on April 9 in a White Plains, New York, hospital at age 50 following a heart attack on April 2.
