We knew him as DMX, he was born Earl Simmons in Mount Vernon, New York in 1970. The gifted and grimy rap artist died today at the age of 50. RIP DMX, your distinct voice and style left an indelible imprint on hip hop.

Let Me Fly

Either let me fly or give me death
Let my soul rest, take my breath
If I don’t fly I’ma die anyway
I’ma live on, but I’ll be gone any day

Lyrics by Earl Simmons
