CELEBRITY NEWS - Karen Smith Article



Yonkers very own, DMX, will be honored by the city, as well as his family in a public and private memorial service.

The mayor of Yonkers, New York has revealed plans to celebrate Earl Simmons’ life with a special tribute. Mayor Mike Spano wants the memory of DMX to be forever remembered in the town through most likely in the form of a statue or a street named after him.

White Plains Hospital in New York where the father of 15 passed away, has been turned into a makeshift memorial  with fans gathering to leave floral tributes and light candles in his memory.

The mayor wants to have a proper send off and  has also invited DMX’s relatives to hold a public memorial service at the Yonkers Raceway, the city’s largest outdoor venue, to allow family members, friends, and fans to gather safely amid ongoing COVID concerns.

The horse racing facility can host 7,500 people, but under current restrictions, raceway bosses are operating at just 25 percent capacity.

DMX’s loved ones have yet to respond to Mayor Spano’s offer, but according to TMZ, his family plans to host both a private and public funeral, with details expected to be announced in the coming days.
