DMX’s daughter, Sonovah Junior, rapped a tribute to her father during DMX’s memorial service, Saturday.
DMX’s daughter, Sonovah, performed a heart-warming rap tribute to her late father during the "Celebration Of Life Memorial" at the Brooklyn Barclays Center, Saturday. Sonovah's rap was her own take on DMX’s 1998 song, "Slippin."
“I am growing, I am learning, to hold my head up/My daddy’s still holding my hand, so I gotta stand up/I learned so much from my father… He taught me to be strong, but it’s OK to be afraid/‘Cause sometimes it’ll show you how to be brave,” she rapped during the event, rather than performing a speech. “I never give up, I give it all/‘Cause I know I’m big, even though I look small/Lookin’ at my daddy’s picture on the wall… My brothers and sisters, we all stand together/Throw up the X, daddy forever.”
