Rapper/actor DMX will be remembered at an April 24 memorial service at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, his manager said today.
DMX died on April 9 of a heart attack that followed a drug overdose. He lingered for more than a week in a vegetative state before finally passing.
Details on how many people will be able to attend the ceremony and ticketing are still being determined, according to manager Steve Rifkind. A day after the public event, DMX’s family and friends will attend a private funeral service at a church in the NYC area.
Capacity at the arena, which is home to the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets and New York Liberty of the WNBA, wil be limited by pandemic restrictions.
