Over the weekend, a number of Montreal DJs paid their respects to DMX with special tribute mixes.

Don Smooth, who celebrates his birthday today, took to Twitch on the night of Dark Man X’s passing for a special edition of his “Reunited the Mix Show,” spinning many of X’s greatest hits.

Don Smooth is perhaps best known as the longtime host of “Street Sounds,” which aired on 103.7FM. For years, it served as the only hip-hop show on Montreal radio.

Similarly, DJ Storm has shared a mix of DMX essentials via HearThis. The mix includes timeless tracks such as “Slippin’,” “Ruff Ryders Anthem” and, of course, “Party Up.”

DJ Storm has had years of experience in the music industry. He has collaborated and toured with the likes of Eminem, Public Enemy’s Chuck D and the Fugees’ Wyclef Jean.
