The 2021 BET Awards put on a star-studded tribute for DMX during Sunday night’s ceremony. Method Man, Griselda, and more came together at the ceremony to perform a tribute for the late legendary rapper DMX. The star-studded performance included Method Man performing an a cappella rendition of DMX’s 1998 single “Get at Me Dog,” actor Michael K. Williams performing “Slippin” and “What’s My Name,” Swizz Beatz and the LOX remixing “Ruff Ryders Anthem,” and much more.
“There were so many people that DMX impacted through his journey, so many people that knew him as he went from Earl to DMX that they could have chose to be there,” Method Man told American publication EW earlier, revealing he was performing at the occasion. “The fact that they chose me, again, I am honored, it’s a privilege. And I didn’t get to say goodbye at his wake or at his funeral, even though I was invited. This would be a nice way for me to say farewell.”
