The “Ryde Out” event will take place on April 9, It's already been two years since DMX passed away. The 50-year-old was rushed to a hospital in White Plains, New York after suffering a reported alleged drug overdose, and was briefly placed on life support before he died.
His family released a statement following the news, writing, “Earl was a warrior who fought till the very end. He loved his family with all of his heart and we cherish the times we spent with him. Earl’s music inspired countless fans across the world and his iconic legacy will live on forever. We appreciate all of the love and support during this incredibly difficult time. Please respect our privacy as we grieve the loss of our brother, father, uncle and the man the world knew as DMX.”
X’s life was celebrated at the Barclays.
DMX had a larger-than-life influence on his community. It came as no surprise that the entire perimeter of Barclays was blocked off and packed several hours prior to the event, only to let an enormous monster truck — carrying a bright red casket that was reportedly DMX’s — arrive on the scene.
