Drag-On was a major part of the Ruff Ryders rap dynasty during the late 90s and early 2000s and made many memorable appearances alongside DMX, Eve and The Lox.

On Saturday (April 10), Drag-On posted an emotional video tribute on his Instagram account, thanking people for sending him well-wishes, condolences and more.

“I just appreciate all the love you’re showing my brother because he was the one who put me on the map, he was a good dude on a whole nother level,” he said in the video.

Additionally in the caption, Drag said that X was one of his few friends in the music business and really wishes he was still around physically.
