An Open Love Letter To DMX

at11:15 am | By

Earlier this week, DMX had everyone stopping in their tracks as news surfaced of him falling unconscious due to an alleged asthma attack. The veteran rapper was found unconscious in a hotel parking lot in Yonkers, where he reportedly was not breathing. While he is currently in stable condition in the hospital, some have alleged that he may have overdosed on drugs, rather than simply suffering an asthma attack. Regardless of what happened, we’re glad that DMX is doing alright, but we want him to know how much he means to us and the rest of the hip hop community.

Dear DMX, you may not know us directly, but you should understand how much we know and love you. We have watched you come into our lives, cater to our ears, and pick us up when we needed it. Your music has taken over the rap game at times, and your spirit is always felt. From your rough around the edges exterior, to your soft teddy bear heart, there is so much of you that still needs to be spread across the world.

We know that you have had your issues over the years, whether it be with the law, or your own personal problems, but that hasn’t stopped us from appreciating your greatness. A lot of the odds have been against you in the past, and still may be today, but you have to understand how much hip hop needs you. It may not be the years of everyone wanting to bark like a dog, or be part of the Ruff Ryders anymore, but hip hop still holds a soft spot for you.
