Another Ruff Ryders emcee has shared a touching post following the death of fellow member DMX. On Friday (April 9), shortly after the news of the rapper’s tragic passing, Styles P shared a throwback photo of him with X and his partners from The LOX, Jadakiss and Sheek Louch.

Alongside the picture, he penned the following caption: “DOG N**** WHAT!!! Rest easy, see you on the other side!!! You was a legend before you made it and will remain one!!! The world will miss you, but the town gonna ride like you still here!! Energy never dies...” Kiss, who has not yet broken his silence, commented under the post with crying emojis.

Styles’ post comes after Eve, Swizz Beatz and Sheek Louch honored X with their own tributes.

In Eve’s message, she highlighted some of her favorite things about DMX. “#mydog I know that you are in the place of peace you deserve,” she wrote. “I will be forever grateful to have known you. You were one of the most special people I have ever met. Full of Humour, talent, wisdom and love, and most of all loyalty.”

Swizz later poured his heart out while making a promise to keep his friend’s legacy alive. “I’m truly beyond devastated !!!!!!” he wrote alongside a video of him and X.

“But I’m so happy my brother is no longer in pain. I watched him take everyone’s pain and make it his own. I send my love and support to his entire family. My brother we will never let them forget your name and you will live forever F.A.M.E. Long live King DMX THE GREAT AKA my brother 4 Life Earl Simmons.”

In a shorter tribute, Sheek Louch posted a photo of him and X. The caption to the post read, “Rest Up King.”
