DMX Remembers Aaliyah

On the 10-year anniversary of singer Aaliyah's death, her friend and collaborator, rapper/actor DMX shared his memories of the talented songbird. X first met Aaliyah while working on the 2000 Jet Li film Romeo Must Die which led to them releasing the single "Back in One Piece."

"When I was on tour, her and Joel Silver came to my dressing room to see if I wanted to be a part of the movie," he said. "Most people would have their people call, but she came herself. I'm like, 'Is this a trick question? You have to ask me if I want to be in a movie with Aaliyah? Hell yeah.' We [then] met up in Vancouver to [do] Romeo Must Die...She had a presence on TV that was incredible. It was sexy but kind of gangster."

"She was easy to talk to and down to earth. Aaliyah made you feel comfortable, with her and with yourself. That's one hell of a combination," he explained. "Half these chicks that are doing it right now wouldn't be doing it. Aaliyah would be on top. As far as I'm concerned she's still on top."
