DMX and Nas became good friends while co-starring in the 1998 film Belly.
Last night on Desus and Mero, Nas spoke on his relationship with the late X and the bond they formed while shooting the Hype Williams flick.
“We formed a brotherhood,” he said of DMX. “I didn’t have to see him or he didn’t have to call me, but when we saw each other though, it was that. Even working on the film, we cried.
We were at the tunnel doing a scene and I was like, ‘You feel that, bro?’ He was like, ‘Yeah.’ And he’s crying and now I’m crying. He was talking with that grrr. I was like, ‘This man’s energy is something else.'”
