Over a month ago, the music industry lost one of the best to ever do it in DMX. It was reported on April 2 that he suffered a heart attack from an apparent drug overdose, which soon caused him to be on life support. The New York native was being taken care of at a local hospital at White Plains. His brain function unfortunately did not improve at all over the next week, which resulted in his family deciding to take him off life support.
Two Memorial Service Were Held For DMX
On April 24, DMX‘s funeral was held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The next day, another memorial service was held in NYC, with loved ones in attendance. Some of the notable speakers included DMX’s ex-wife, Tashera Simmons, and his fiancee at the time, Desiree Lindstrom. These two ladies also shared a hug on stage together.
