Today (April 24), famed rapper DMX’s Celebration of Life memorial service is taking place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York at 4:00 p.m. ET/1:00 p.m. PT.
Many fans of the now-late MC have been dreading the day, while it hasn’t sunk in yet for others that Dark Man X is truly gone. But, a video clip that was just posted on social media, and has since been spreading, is making his death that much more realistic to those who are still too upset to accept it. Footage of DMX’s casket being taken to the Barclays Center on a massive monster truck is now circulating.
The casket is a fiery red one and has the Ruff Ryders logo on it. The truck that it’s riding on also has the words “Love Live DMX” on its side, as well as the RR logo, too. As viewers of the clip can see, Ruff Ryders members were also riding their bikes alongside the monster truck while decked out in their double R gear, as well.
Take a look at the video of DMX making one last trip through New York City below.

X’s Celebration of Life will not be open to the public, but instead close friends and family members. Tomorrow (Sunday, April 25), the deceased star’s Homegoing Celebration, which will also be for close ones, will take place, as well.
“Attendance to both the Celebration of Life memorial and the Home-going Celebration will be restricted to close friends and family solely due to health and safety guidelines,” a statement about the funeral services read at the time of their announcement. “New York State currently limits indoor arenas to 10 [percent] capacity. New York State COVID-19 testing guidelines and protocols will be followed.”
