DMX's mini-me daughter Sonovah is already taking after her dad! The eight-year-old performed at a bar in Texas, after stealing the show at her father's memorial.

It seems DMX‘s daughter Sonovah Hillman Jr. certainly inherited some of her dad’s musical gift! At the tender age of eight, the daughter of the rap icon, who died at the age of 50 just two months ago, took the stage in her father’s place. DMX was slated to perform at the Wildcatter Saloon in Katy, Texas, on May 29, however little Sonovah took the stage instead to offer her take on her dad’s classic “Slippin'”. She rocked a white graphic tee, featuring an image of her dad, along with a pink tulle skirt and two adorable buns in her hair for the performance.

“Thank you so much @wildcatter_saloon I won’t ever forget you giving me the opportunity,” she wrote on Instagram. “My first concert forever grateful big thank you and shout out to Justin, John, Carmen, and Scott. When I make it big I’m coming back. I promise.” Fans were quick to congratulate her on the achievement, with one follower writing, “That’s Dmx soul she about to take Over the world,” while another commented, “Hi baby. Keep going! That’s that Yonkers spirit in you kid!”

Fans of the late rapper would recall the youngster totally stole the spotlight at her father’s emotional memorial service when she performed an original rap. “I’m growing, I’m learning, to hold my head up. My daddy’s still holding my hand so I gotta get up,” she sang. The rapper’s final interview was also recently aired on TV One, and the father-of-15 opened up about the joys and challenges of fatherhood during the revealing interview.

Just being someone that… I like being someone that like, ‘Whatever you want to do. Come talk to me.’ Whatever… I don’t give a f***. It is what it is.” He added, “At the end of the day, parents are not good parents just because they have a child. They’re just parents. Two people f***ed. They had a baby. They don’t get a parent degree as soon as the baby comes out.”
