“We are truly sorry to hear of the loss of rap legend, DMX. We join the millions of fans worldwide in sending our deepest condolences to his loved ones and the hip-hop community. He will truly be missed,” said Connie Orlando, Executive Vice President of Specials, Music Programming & Music Strategy. “DMX is part of the BET family. From countless appearances on our ‘Hip Hop Awards’ including the cyphers to starring in his self-titled docuseries “DMX: Soul of a Man,” and most recently “Ruff Ryder Chronicles,” his talents extended beyond music, TV, and film. His work to help the less fortunate, including  his hometown of Mount Vernon, New York, speaks to DMX’s benevolent spirit. We will keep his entire family in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”
