A video which has re-emerged online has revealed that American rapper DMX was a huge fan of the TV sitcom The Golden Girls.
The X Gon’ Give It To Ya singer, whose real name was Earl Simmons, died aged 50 on Friday. He had suffered a heart attack on April 2 which left him on life support.
As tributes flooded in from the likes of Missy Elliott, LeBron James and The Weeknd, one clip from a 2017 episode of YouTube series Hot Wings saw actress Gabrielle Union share a unique memory of the artist.
“Did you know that DMX loves The Golden Girls?” she asks host Sean Evans.
After Evans replied asking her how she knew about this, Union continued: “Because he watches it in his trailer.
“There was a dog-biting incident with one of the PAs. I was sent to go get him for set.
“So, after a while, nobody wanted to go get him, and so I would be sent to go get him, because I’m a dog person.”
