DMX’s daughter Sonovah is keeping his legacy thriving
DMX’s 8-year-old daughter Sonovah Hillman Jr. is already beginning to build her rap career, to keep his late dad’s legacy alive. In an interview with NBC DFW, X’s daughter explained that she makes music out of passion and talent in her.
“Whatever is on my mind, I just write about it.” She said. “Rapping makes me feel powerful. Someday I want to own a mansion with 15 bedrooms.”

Sonovah is expected to be featured on two songs off DMX’s future posthumous album, but it’s not certain if it’s the already complete Exodus, which will be dropping May 28.
Since releasing her debut single “I Hate Zoom,” Hillman Jr. followed it up with “TikTok Kid” on May 8 (Saturday). These are only two of the 20 songs she already has in the vault.
Exodus, X’s first posthumous album since he passed on April 9, is executive-produced by Swizz Beatz. The album cover art, which was recently shared along with the release date, was shot by Jonathan Mannion. The album will be released via Def Jam and Ruff Ryders. It will be X’s first album for Def Jam since Grand Champ released in 2003.
