Fans praised the Verzuz battle between Snoop and X last July as one of the last celebrations of the Ruff Ryder's music and legacy. The West Coast MC posted several snippets of their battle over the weekend to commemorate their camaraderie. "Love u brother. C u when I get there," Snoop wrote underneath one of the videos, while captioning another, "What they thought was a battle ended up being a family reunion. Of 2 Doggs who loved everything about each other thank. U. X for loving me back."
When talking with Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager after DMX's death, the 49-year-old rapper touched on his friend's higher calling. "I’d like to say that DMX was wanting to glorify his relationship with God, and he was always pushing the right thing, and he was always trying to help other people," he told them in an interview snippet that was released Monday (April 12). "And that leads me to believe that’s why God chose His angel to come back home with him. He did his time out here. He did what he was supposed to do. He influenced, he inspired and he represented. So, DMX, his soul will live on and his music will live on, as well. We thank you, brother, for what you brought to us."
