DMX: MEMORIAL TO HOLD AT BARCLAYS CENTER
Written by MAX FM on April 19, 2021
A public memorial will be held for DMX at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center next week, two weeks after the Yonkers rapper died from complications of a drug overdose.
The hip-hop icon, who died at the age of 50 after spending a week in a coma, will be honoured by family, friends and fans on April 24, according to TMZ.
Ticketing and COVID-19 logistics are still being ironed out, according to the report. The arena has a potential capacity of 19,000.
DMX performed at the venue twice, according to Billboard. Barclays Center opened a decade after the rapper’s chart-topping heyday.
A more private funeral service will be held for the Yonkers-raised rapper the next day at a New York church, the outlet said.
