DMX’s friends, family, and fans will be honoring the hip-hop legend during a memorial at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center next week, according to TMZ.
Page Six reports that it will be closed to the public. Fans will be able to watch, however, via livestream. X’s former manager, Steve Rifkind, reportedly revealed the celebration will take place at the arena on Saturday, April 24, with other details being finalized, such as ticketing and the venue’s capacity due to COVID. Family and loved ones will also reportedly later attend a private funeral service at a church located in New York City on the following day, April 25.
The news of the Barclays memorial comes days after DMX’s April 9 death following a heart attack. Since his passing, there’s been an outpouring of love for the rap legend, with his music streams increasing 900 percent as of Tuesday.
