Since the death of rap icon DMX on April 9, celebrities and fans have shared countless stories of how the inspirational artist impacted their lives. New York rapper/TV personality Action Bronson had a unique experience in which one of DMX’s songs aided in the birth of his son.
Action Bronson Used DMX To Help His Wife Give Birth
During an appearance on Joe Rogan‘s podcast, Action Bronson recalled the time when his wife was in labor with their son and she was listening to flute music in an attempt to stay calm. When a doctor said the couple was running out of time to deliver before surgery would be needed, Action switched the music to DMX’s “Ruff Ryders’ Anthem.”
“Stop … drop … that motherf*cker jumped out of her! I swear on everything! It’s on camera! … DMX came on, he f*ckin’ heard the dog and … just jumped out.”
DMX Concert Turns Into Tribute Event
DMX is still holding events despite his tragic loss. A venue that the New York native was meant to perform at in Texas has converted the event into a tribute concert for the beloved rapper.
DMX’s Fiancée Calls Him Her Everything
This past weekend, DMX’s fiancée Desiree Lindstorm went to Instagram with a must-read message. In the message, Desiree explains just how much he meant to her and their family.
“The first night we met and you held me close. I knew I would never let go. I was lost in you and nothing else mattered. My best friend, my baby, my love…truly my everything. Thank you for us. Thank you for Exodus. Thank you God for Earl Simmons…forever X.”
The post sparked a reaction in the comments section from reality TV star Masika Kalysha.
“Praying for you, Exodus and your entire family. The whole world took a loss. Rest in Power X”
DMX’s Public Memorial Is Happening
Earlier this month, according to reports, an emotional event is slated to go down at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center for DMX. However, COVID-19 restrictions could ultimately keep the April 24th memorial from reaching full capacity.
A private funeral service will take place the following day at a New York City-area church, TMZ also reported. DMX’s family chose Barclays Center over an invitation from Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano to hold the memorial in DMX’s home county at Yonkers Raceway. Since his death, vigils have popped up around New York, in addition to the outpouring of in memoriam posts online. About a thousand people attended a vigil in the rapper’s hometown on April 14.
