Fans across the world are in mourning after the family of DMX confirmed that the rapper passed away on Friday.

He had spent the week at White Plains Hospital after having a heart attack that left him in a "vegetative state," as Blavity previously reported.  Celebrities and people who knew DMX personally shared their own tributes, highlighting the deep impact he had on those who were close to him.

"I know that you are in the place of peace you deserve. I will be forever grateful to have known you. You were one of the most special people I have ever met. Full of Humour, talent, wisdom and love and most of all loyalty. This world has lost a REAL ONE but the heavens have gained an ANGEL. Sending huge love to his family. May you Rest," longtime collaborator and friend Eve wrote on Instagram.
