American rapper and actor; Earl Simmons, who is best known by his stage name DMX or Dark Man X, died on Friday at 50. He spent his final days on life support at White Plains Hospital in Westchester County after suffering a heart attack on April 2.

DMX was one of the most recognizable M.C.s in the late 1990s and early 2000s, years when hardcore New York rap could still stake a claim as hip-hop’s central concern.
DMX who was born on the 18th of December 1970 at Mount Vernon, New York, United States had lots of hit tracks with strong lyrics that won’t be forgotten for a long time.
“May you fill that void in our souls that will lay our fears to rest
Cause there is no way we can live for Jesus when we’re liven in the flesh
So I pray that you allow our spirits to be born
Grow strong, move on, know right from wrong
First John, chapter two, verse 15
do not love the world or anything in the world
and we know what that means, but listen
We know the distance we need to be away from the fire to keep it missing
That doesn’t mean we’ll listen,” part lyrics to The Prayer VI.
