It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since the tragic death of R&B artist, Aaliyah.
To honor his friend, rapper DMX made an appearance on BET’s 106 and Park, introducing his newborn daughter, whom he named after the ‘One in a Million’ singer who was killed in a plane crash on August 25, 2001.
This is Aaliyah,” DMX announced. “She is my newest baby. I named her after [singer] Aaliyah because that’s how special she was to me.”
“Know that you are named after an angel,” the rapper said while looking into his daughter’s eyes.
DMX is rumored to have fathered up to nine other children, including his four kids with ex-wife Tashera Simmons – Xavier, Tocoma, Shawn, and Praise.
