Sonovah, DMX’s daughter, performed a touching rap tribute to her late father at Saturday’s “Celebration Of Life Memorial” at the Brooklyn Barclays Center. Sonovah’s rap was a cover of DMX’s “Slippin” from 1998.
“I’m learning to keep my head up/My daddy’s still holding my hand, so I’ve got to stand up/I’ve learned a lot from my dad… Rather than giving a speech, she rapped during the case, saying, “He taught me to be tough, but it’s OK to be afraid/Cause sometimes it’ll show you how to be brave.” “I never give up, I give everything/Because I know I’m tall, even if I appear small/Lookin’ at my daddy’s picture on the wall… We all stand together, my brothers and sisters/Throw up the X, daddy forever.”
In the year 2009, Sonovah was born. On her Instagram profile, she regularly shares videos of herself rapping.
During the case, Swizz Beatz, Nas, and others spoke about DMX’s effects. X died on April 9th, at the age of 50, after being admitted to the hospital for a heart attack.
Yeezy and Balenciaga partnered on a new T-shirt in remembrance of DMX, which was released in time for the memorial service.
