The 42-year-old hitmaker also praised the late DMX for not showing off his wealth like so many others do with jewelry or cars. Going further, Beatz likened DMX to a "prophet," revealing that he was yet to meet a human like him.

DMX passed away on April 9, one week after he endured a heart attack.

Beatz went on to make revelations about some struggles DMX went through at a young age. He referenced the time DMX spent in jail, alleging that he had been in so much pain he had gone to prison to feel free and escape his pain.

Each time he returned from prison, DMX would reveal the things he worked through while there. In 2019, it was his mind, and Beatz was one of those the late rapper had reached out to after his release.

Beatz also listed out some of DMX's more desirable qualities and credited him for inspiring him to make music. As the video neared its conclusion, he shared a dream he had of his "brother."

Before he had the dream, Beatz said that he had been in so much pain; however, after dreaming about seeing DMX smile, he woke up feeling better.

DMX passed away on April 9, one week after he endured a heart attack. He was aged 50 and is survived by his mother, Arnett Simmons, his siblings, 15 children, and their mothers.
