While getting to know one another as co-stars on Cradle 2 The Grave, DMX and Paige Hurd took a trip to Six Flags. However, it didn't go exactly as planned, with them being kicked out of the amusement park after the group got caught with weed. Moreover, the legendary rapper's goddaughter recalled the experience during a recent interview with Preme Magazine. As it turns out, the Power actress was actually terrified of rollercoasters, so it worked out for her. Still, she looked back fondly on one of their first memories together as they developed their on-screen father-daughter chemistry ahead of filming.
"Like right before we were filming Cradle 2 the Grave, we had to do like daddy-daughter bonding," Paige Hurd remarked about the DMX story. "He came to pick me [and my sister] up from my house… And he was taking us to Six Flags. Now, I’m claustrophobic I do not do rollercoasters, I don’t do theme parks. I was like, ‘Yeah, well, I don’t ride rollercoasters.’ He was like, ‘Well, you are today.’ I was freaking out the entire way there. He drives very fast. I’m pretty sure we could all imagine. Very, very fast in this small car and we’re driving down the 5 freeway [and he] misses the exit.

"You think he goes to the next exit?" the 30-year-old continued. "Middle of the freeway, reverses and reverses down the on-ramp to get up. We get to Six Flags and me and my sister are terrified we have to get on these rides. And by the grace of God, weed was not legal then. They found weed and we got kicked out before we even got in. And I am like, ‘I’m the Lord’s child. He loves him some Paige.’ Then we ended up going to the mall, KFC and hanging out for the day. That’s one of my first memories that we’ve had."
Through memories and tales like these, the legacy of DMX lives on as strongly as ever. While his absence is still painfully felt in the rap world, his impact was too large to be erased by mortality. In the coming years, as younger generations discover his catalog, we should expect much more reflections on his greatness.
