With multiple balloon releases and memorials taking place in the U.S. in honor of the late DMX, many have been waiting to find out if they can be part of his official homegoing service. According to TMZ’s former manager Steve Rifkind, TMZ reports, fans can pay their respects to the late April 24th icon on April 24th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Currently, the memorial logistics are still in the works and there is no exact number of people allowed to enter the venue, nor how the ticketing will be cleared.
Although the center has a capacity of 19,000, there will be limited capacity due to COVID-19 restrictions. The news from the homegoing public service makes me think of similar services held for the late Nipsey Hussle and Kobe Bryant. As we previously reported, both men had public services at the Staple Center in Los Angeles, where fans and other celebrities could attend and pay their final respects. Many celebrated the lives of Nipsey and Kobe during the memorials by telling memorable stories and performing musical tributes.
There was no information on who would be performing, but I can’t see homegoing without the Ruff Ryder family present. Swizz Beats, Drag-On, and others have already shared heartfelt messages on social media. Following the memorial, the DMX family will hold an intimate memorial service for close family and friends at a church in the NYC area the following day, April 25.
