Hell yeah.’ We [then] met up in Vancouver to [do] Romeo Must Die.” “She had a presence on TV that was incredible,” DMX continued. Not many people can say that,” DMX says of “Back in One Piece.” Ten years after her passing, Aaliyah is still No. “Half these chicks that are doing it right now wouldn’t be doing it. “As far as I’m concerned she’s still on top.” “Thank you,” DMX says she would tell Aaliyah if still here. He made it very clear that he’s glad he’s ditched that Hip Hop mogul life, and he speaks a little on his former friend Jay-Z. What’s the first thing you would say to Jay if y’all had a conversation? I feel like I’ve done a lot and whatever his dreams are he’s made them come true but my dreams aren’t the same as his. I’m not trying to be in hip-hop at 42 and 43 looking like an old man in the club. I always wanted to do fashion, make movies, I enjoy business and being an entrepreneur on every level. Death is 100% going to happen to every human being, or anything living in the planet. Everybody goes through it, everybody survives loss. He also revealed how he was able to get over the death of Aaliyah (who he was dating at the time) and when asked about his divorce to fashion designer Rachel Roy back in 2009, he didn’t want to talk too much about it, but he did slip up and say, “she won.” Check some highlights below: He was.

Things became tense when Dame began dating Aaliyah and Jay Z took her as his date to a wedding. Dame previously explained that Aaliyah tried to give guys a shot. He said, "It was just a situation where Aaliyah was the type of girl that would give you a shot. It would be like we were the only ones in the room,” Dash recalls.“It was like something was going down in history every time I was with her.
He knew her before I did." There were photos of Hova and Aaliyah looking pretty cozy, which now makes sense. And Jay found his match in the stunner Beyonce Knowles.The once inseparable pair started the Roc-A-Fella empire that produced hit albums, a clothing line and a movie production company. I’ve done so many other things, I just haven’t tried to advertise it. I was pushing that it was healthy to sell drugs, and to get it however you can and disrespecting women and all that.As in many friendship turned business relationships, the two shocked the Hip Hop world when they parted ways. For a 20-year-old, being ignorant without a male figure to guide you, that sh-t is somewhat acceptable to a certain level but as a 34, 35-year-old, you can’t keep doing that knowing that you have children and the harm it does to your culture.Taxstone touches on the subject of Aaliyah causing the downfall of Roc-A-Fella Records during his interview with Vlad TV. Somebody may have had a different experience at a different time in her life."Dash and Aaliyah began dating in 2000 after being friends for some time first.

So I had to, but then it was just like, ‘F*ck it.'"Dame and Aaliyah were still in a relationship when the singer was tragically killed in a plane crash in 2001.
