May 3, 2021 Lil Wayne offered up a cool story about touring with DMX when the New Orleans rapper was still a kid. Lil Wayne heaped praise and respect on late rapper DMX during a gig in Miami, Florida over the weekend. The Lollipop hitmaker was performing as part of Trillerfest when he took a moment to honor the fallen star, who died on April 9th, aged 50. Sharing a story about touring with DMX, Wayne said: When I was a younger kid, we used to be on tour a lot, right. Like six months a year. We used to have so many artists we didnt need to have no opening acts cause we just needed another record label, and it was just us and them. So back then we went on this tour called The Cash Money/Ruff Ryders Tour. A post shared by AllHipHop (@allhiphopcom) Being from New Orleans, its so far away from New York and Cali (California) and s### like that. We didnt know if it was real when we seen it on TV, the New York guys, the L.A. people. So when we saw DMX, we all fell in love. He added, When I got on tour with him, and now youre in the hotel lobby, youre backstage, you run into a n#### and he actually says something to you, and when you see this nihga talk like how he rap, and you see this n#### is what he is, and you see this n#### has a zillion dogs with him, its impossible not to be obsessed, infatuated, impressed, whatever. Waynes tribute came a week after DMXs family and friends staged a memorial service at Brooklyns Barclays Center in New York.
