In 2021, Beatz honored his late friend DMX while presenting at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards only a month after DMX died at age 50. "This year in hip-hop has been really hard," said Beatz at the time. "We lost so many amazing souls. We would like to honor their lives, and I would like to honor my brother, DMX, the great."

"He made music with raw passion," Beatz continued. "He spoke to the streets, he spoke to the world. He prayed for others before he could pray for himself. He loved others before he would love himself. His music is iconic magic to the world. Following Tupac, he is the second rapper to have two No. 1 albums in one year. His legacy will forever be remembered."

The tribute came less than two weeks after Beatz announced on social media DMX's posthumous albumExodus. Beatz produced the album, which shares its name with DMX's youngest son.

Beatz shares two of his sons — Genesis Ali, 8, and Egypt Daoud, 12 — with wife Alicia Keys, 42. He is also dad to kids Prince Nasir, 22, Kasseem Jr., 16, and Nicole, 15, from previous relationships.

Earlier in August, Keys took the couple's son Genesis to see Taylor Swift's 'Eras' tour, getting to go backstage to chat with the musician herself. "Big love to @taylorswift for your big beautiful spirit that makes everyone feel loved!" she wrote alongside a set of photos of Genesis and the "Cruel Summer" singer, 33.

"Genesis adores u 💜💜💜," she added, sharing some throwback photos of the two first meeting at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards, where the two musical talents were seated near each other.
