DMX’s team confirmed Wednesday that the late rapper will be honored at a private memorial service Saturday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn that will livestream on YouTube at 4 p.m. EDT. In addition, a private funeral will be held at a New York City church Sunday. The celebration will broadcast live on BET at 2:30 p.m. EDT. Attendance for both events will be limited to family and close friends due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
DMX, born Earl Simmons, died April 9 after being placed on life support following a heart attack at home. The rapper was a three-time Grammy nominee known for such singles as “What’s My Name,” “Party Up (Up in Here” and “X Gon’ Give It to Ya.”
