Swizz collaborated on many projects with his longtime friend DMX.

“My brother was a different type of brother — a different type of artist, a different type of creative, different type of spirit, different type of zone, different type of soul,” Swizz said in an emotional video via Instagram shortly after DMX’s death.

Swizz continued: “Since the day that I met him, he lived his life for everyone else … You ain’t never seen DMX with a Lamborghini, you ain’t never seen my brother with a Rolls-Royce, you ain’t never seen him iced out with no jewelry. He did not care about any of that.”
