Rap legend Earl "DMX" Simmons has died at the age of 50.

DMX was known for his raw, authentic and aggressive style and gruff voice, which made his music stand out during his career.

Combining raw emotion and socially aware lyrics, DMX was a three-time Grammy-nominated artist who also made forays to the big screen, starring in films such as "Romeo Must Die" and "Cradle 2 The Grave."

Best known for hits such as "Ruff Ryders' Anthem," "Party Up (Up In Here)," "Who We Be" and "X Gon' Give It To Ya," DMX's career spanned more than 20 years and eight studio albums, five of which reached No. 1 on U.S. charts consecutively. His albums have been certified platinum 14 times by the RIAA.

DMX was admitted to the hospital on April 2 after reportedly suffering a heart attack. He remained in the hospital on life support until April 9, with family confirming his death that morning.

DMX's music resonated with many, include active and past members of the sports world, who paid homage to the artist Friday.
