Watch The Heartfelt DMX Tribute at 2021 BET Awards
Written by Jay Holz on June 28, 2021
The 2021 BET Awards was one to remember. With a ton of amazing performances, one of the best and most anticipated of the evening was certainly the DMX tribute.
The LOX, Griselda, Busta Rhymes and more paid homage to the late rapper, performing a medley of the star’s biggest hits. Method Man kicked things off with an a cappella version of X’s breakout single “Get at Me Dog”. Next up was the Griselda crew (Westside Gunn, Benny The Butcher and Conway The Machine), who performed their X collab “Hood Blues” from his posthumous album EXODUS, and then a chorus of X’s ‘Where the Hood At?’
From there, actor Michael K. Williams introduced Swizz Beatz and the LOX who did the remix version of DMX’s classic hit “Ruff Ryders Anthem”. Finally, Busta Rhymes took over and led a rendition of the rapper’s first Hot 100 hit “Party Up (Up in Here)”. Just a beautiful medley altogether.
