Rapper, actor, and cultural icon DMX died on Friday at the age of 50, his family confirmed, and that has hit some NBA players hard.

DMX — whose real name was Earl Simmons — suffered a heart attack on April 2 and never recovered. DMX exploded onto the rap scene in 1998 with his first album, “It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot,” and went on to have an iconic career that included hits such as “Party Up” and “X Gon’ Give It to Ya.” He also did some acting, appearing in movies such as “Belly” and “Romeo Must Die.”

The passing of DMX was felt around the NBA, including LeBron James and James Harden.
