Legendary rapper's memorial service was held yesterday at The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Family, friends and fellow artists joined together to pay their tributes and respects.
Before the memorial started a giant monster truck with some of DMX's closest friends hanging out the side windows came behind a motorcycle escort playing "What's My Name." The truck doors read 'Long Live DMX.'
Members of the Ruff Ryders music label like Eve, Swizz Beatz, Drag-On and founding member Joaquin Dean expressed words of gratitude and lessons DMX taught them.
"Thank you for the energy that everyone has brought here today, the celebration of how great we all know DMX was, (and) what he has left behind. This is so hard, y'all. He will rest in power, rest in love, but most of all he will rest in peace." Rapper Eve said as she wiped her tears
Alicia Keys husband, Swizz Beats took the mic and shared his message saying he wished all those there would have showed up for the late rapper when he was alive.
Swizz Beatz sent a poignant message.
"I just wish all these people showed up for him when he was here. He needed everybody when he was here, we got to learn to celebrate each other while we're here."
Nas, who starred alongside DMX in the 1998 movie "Belly," took the stage saying it was "an honor to be here" but also "it's a sad day."
Fans from around the region and even as far as Florida came to show support with Kanye West's Sunday Service Choir doing their thing
May the legendary rapper Rest In Peace and may his family, friends and former colleagues be comforted.
