Union and DMX costarred in the 2003 action film “Cradle 2 the Grave.”

From Union’s touching tribute, it’s clear that the two shared a strong bond and had remained close ever since that experience of working together.

As a rapper, DMX was known for his aggressive and raw style. He won an American Music Award in 2000 and released multiple albums that went on to achieve platinum status.

DMX was first hospitalized on April 2 after suffering an apparent drug overdose and subsequent heart attack at his home in White Plains, N.Y.

He was just 50 years old.
