Nas and DMX co-starred in the ghetto cult film Belly, directed by Hype Williams, in 1998. That same year, DMX released two number one albums, It’s Dark And Hell Is Hot and Flesh Of M Flesh, Blood Of My Blood, cementing his status as a Hip Hop legend.
Nas laments on the loss of DMX to the Hip Hop world in an exclusive interview with Desus And Mero, then reflects on an emotional moment the two rappers turned movie stars shared on the set of Belly.
“We were doing a scene at the Tunnel, and I was like, ‘You feel that, bro?'” ‘Yeah,’ he replied. And he’s crying, and I’m crying as well. ‘Grrr,’ he was saying to it. ‘This man’s energy is extraordinary,’ I thought.
