Ruff Ryders are gathering the family, friends and fans of the late DMX for their “Ryde Out” event.
Set to happen on April 9 in New York City, “Ryde Out” marks the second death anniversary of the influential artist and will “celebrate and remember our brother DMX and all our fallen [soldiers].” The group added, “Please bring all your family and friends for a day full of food, fun, games and music.”
“He made music with raw passion,” recalled X’s Ruff Ryders cohort Swizz Beatz during the 2021 Billboard Music Awards. “He spoke to the streets, he spoke to the world, [and] he prayed for others before he could pray for himself. He loved others before he would love himself. His music is iconic magic to the world. Following Tupac, he is the second rapper to have two No. 1 albums in one year. His legacy will forever be remembered.”
DMX was the go-to star for the revered East Coast label after a seismic debut in 1998. “It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot” and 1999’s “Flesh Of My Flesh, Blood Of My Blood” helped X earn Hip-Hop supremacy as he notched two Billboard 200 #1 albums within a one-year period.
DMX died on April 9, 2021 due to a heart attack. His posthumous album entitled “EXODUS” went on to debut at #8 on the Billboard 200 and the song “Bath Salts,” which featured Jay-Z and Nas, received a nomination for “Best Rap Song” at the 2022 GRAMMYs.
