Kanye West Might Appear At DMX Memorial Service

According to reports, Beatz reached out to West recently with the request that he participate in the memorial. The event itself will likely be quite the exclusive, star-studded affair, with industry contacts of X and his family as the primary attendees.

Super-producer Swizz Beatz has reached out to Kanye West to ask the rapper to participate in a memorial service for DMX, Page Six has learned. The ceremony for the late star rapper — who passed away on April 2 from a heart attack caused by a drug overdose — is due to be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on April 24th. The “Get at Me Dog” rapper was 50 years old and is survived by his mother and 15 children. (Page Six)

In May 2019, Kanye and X teamed up for a memorable Sunday Service event. During his appearance, Dark Man X blessed Yeezy and attendees with an emotional prayer.

DMX Concert Transforms Into Tribute Event

Earlier this week, the venue owners for the Wildcatter Saloon decided not to cancel a scheduled concert for DMX following his death. They decided instead to still hold it as a tribute concert. The owner also confessed that he and the rest of the staff at the Wildcatter Salon had grown up with DMX’s music and wanted to find a way to honor him.

DMX’s Public Memorial Is Happening

It was announced earlier this month that the emotional public memorial was planned at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. However, COVID-19 restrictions could ultimately keep the April 24th memorial from reaching full capacity.

A private funeral service will take place the following day at a New York City-area church, TMZ also reported. DMX’s family chose Barclays Center over an invitation from Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano to hold the memorial in DMX’s home county at Yonkers Raceway. Since his death, vigils have popped up around New York, in addition to the outpouring of in memoriam posts online. About a thousand people attended a vigil in the rapper’s hometown on April 14.

Swizz Beatz Shares Emotional DMX Video

In April 2021, Swizz Beatz hit up his Instagram to share a nearly 10-minute video on X. Swizz talked about how much pain X went through his entire career and why there will be another artist like him.

“First and foremost I want to say thank-you for all the prayers and the blessings for my brother, the great DMX. Let me tell you something, my brother, he was a different type of brother. Different type of artist. Different type of creative. Different type of spirit. Different type of zone. Different type of soul. Since the day that I met him, he lived his life for everyone else. I never seen him live his life for himself. You ain’t never seen DMX with a Lamborghini. You ain’t never seen my brother with a Rolls-Royce. You win’ never seen him iced-out with no jewelry. He did not care about any of that. He was the biggest. DMX was the biggest. And let me tell you why he was the biggest – he prayed for everybody else more than he did for himself. He’d go on stage and pray with 50,000 people knowing he needed more prayers than everybody that he was praying for. My brother would pray for everyone before he would pray for himself.”

The same week, Swizz remembered X’s life and legacy. Beatz shared footage of them together on a private plane.

“I’m truly beyond devastated !!!!!! But I’m so happy my brother is no longer in pain . I watched him take everyone’s pain and make it his own 🙏🏽 I send my love and support to his entire family 🙏🏽 My brother we will never let them forget your name and you will live forever F.A.M.E🌹 Long live King DMX THE GREAT AKAmy brother 4 Life Earl Simmons 🕊🕊🕊🕊🕊🕊 Damn Dog🥲🥲🥲🥲🥲🥲”
