The Barclays Center Tribute To DMX: Watch

In true New York fashion, thousands of fans helped pay tribute to the late rapper, DMX.

Born in Yonkers, New York, the legendary/revolutionary rapper shocked the world when he passed away on April 9th in White Plains, NY at the age of 57.

In observance of the fallen musician, the New York Police Department shut down some twenty-two miles of highway while his casket was ushered from Yonkers to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Due to local Covid-19 protocols, the arena’s capacity was capped at 10% with only friends and family permitted inside during the funeral service that was broadcast on Sunday April 25th, at 2:30 PM. During the beautiful memorial service, his family and fellow artists spoke on his behalf. Notably, Mel Smalls aka Drag-On became emotional as he shared his thoughts on stage: “He taught me everything I know. The air I breathe is what he put in my lungs.”

Born, Earl Simmons, DMX took the world by storm in the 90’s and early 2000’s with his release of tracks like: “Ruff Ryders Anthem”, “Party Up”, “X Gon’ Give It To Ya”, and “Where The Hood At”. DMX is survived by his 15 children.
