I remember 50 in a cypher when Onyx was "Slammin"

from DMX (Ft. 50 Cent & Styles P) – Shot Down Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

DMX refers to 50 Cent’s very first official appearance on a song, which was OnyxReact.

Dmx kinda fucked up the timeline though. “Slam”, Onyx’s single on Bacdafucup, was released in ‘93, 50 started his career in 96' and React was on Shut ‘Em Down, released in '96.

By “Slamming”, D probably meant when Onyx was big.
