Among last night’s most noteworthy BET Awards performances was an all-star tribute to the late, great DMX, who died on April 9. The performers featured in a medley of DMX’s hits included his ’90s superstar peers (Method Man, Busta Rhymes), his Ruff Ryders affiliates (Swizz Beatz, the Lox), his young disciples Griselda (who appeared on his posthumous album Exodus), and even actor Michael K.

This past weekend, as previously announced, longtime Wu-Tang Clan comrades Raekwon and Ghostface Killah went head-to-head in the latest battle from Swizz Beatz and Timbaland’s pandemic institution Verzuz. It was made for a fun heartwarming spectacle — two old friends bantering back and forth, rapping immortal tracks at each other. Fellow Wu-Tang friends like RZA, Cappadonna, and Inspectah Deck made guest appearances. (You can catch the replay here.) When the show was over, Verzuz announced that it had more battles on deck.

He opened his performance with an untitled new song, which he did with trumpeter Keyon Harrold, and then covered Smokey Robinson’s “Cruisin’.” Special guests included Method Man and Redman, on “Left & Right,” and H.E.R., on Lauryn Hill’s “Nothing Even Matters.”
