Snoop Dogg reflects on DMX’s influence: “His soul will live on”
“He was always trying to help other people,” Snoop remembered of his late friend.
Snoop Dogg remembered his late friend and hip hop legend DMX during a conversation with USA Today. The pair thrilled fans with their Verzuz celebration last summer and Snoop was also set to appear on DMX’s next album.
“Well, I’d like to say that DMX was wanting to glorify his relationship with God and he was always pushing the right thing,” Snoop said in the interview, which will air in full on Friday (April 16).
“And he was always trying to help other people, and that leads me to believe that’s why God chose this angel to come back home with him,” he continued. “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.”
Snoop further reflected on DMX as a person, outside of his vast musical impact.
“He was funny. He loved old school music. He loved old school cars,” he said. “And when I say he loved old school music, he loved old school music and gospel music, probably more than rap music. And that’s what people didn’t know.”
“But if you listen to him talk and you listen to what he testified and what he’s always giving up messages, it’s either that R&B or the gospel music that always pushed the message behind DMX,” he added.
Snoop has also shared other tributes for DMX on social media. In the wake of his tragic passing, Snoop wrote, “DMX did NOT wait to be perfect for God to USE him. He taught people that u can be flawed and still be a vessel.”
Reflecting on their epic Verzuz, Snoop wrote, “What they thought was a battle ended up being a family reunion of [two] Doggs who loved everything about each other. Thank u X for loving me back. C u when I get there.”
