DMX's six-year-old son, Exodus, has shared a tribute to his late father. His mother, Desiree Lindstrom, posted a clip of the young boy covering DMX's 1998 It's Dark and Hell Is Hot track, "Ruff Ryders' Anthem." She wrote about the clip, "Y’all should of known it was coming," calling it "A small tribute to his daddy!" Fans flocked to her comments section to show love for Exodus.

"Girl why a tear fall OMG Exodus I can’t wait to see what life has to offer," one fans writes. Another says, "That boy is gifted … like his father." A commenter tells Exodus, "I know your Dad would be so proud of you," adding a heart emoji.

It seems as though Exodus isn't the only person following in his dad's footsteps. Last month, Swizz Beatz opened up about another artist who he thinks embodies his late friend DMX. “But the thing that make me feel easy about it is he came to me,” the artist began. He described feeling as though the young rapper Scar Lip was sent to him by DMX. Swizz Beatz explained, “I seen him in my dream. He came to me. And this was, like, super quick too. And he let me know he was good. I’m the person that be like, ‘He ain’t come to see you, what you talkin’ about?’ I seen him. I felt him.” 

“I honestly feel like DMX sent Scar Lip my way because she’s too much of his energy,” Swizz said. “Like I’ve never seen an artist that just naturally have what I know DMX have. And they two different artists, two different levels, yes. But I’m not talking about that. You know, like, that sister’s been through a lot, like Dog been through a lot. That sister, you know, is when you sit with her, she’s amazing and have a great heart the same way X had a great heart.”
