DMX to be honoured in his hometown Yonkers, New York


The death of DMX has been hard for his fans across the globe, but perhaps his loss is felt the most in Yonkers, New York.

Now, the mayor of Yonkers reportedly wants to honor the memory of the late rapper in the city he called home.

Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano has expressed interest in holding the memorial for DMX at Yonkers Raceway, the largest outdoor venue in the city.

With an on-site casino, the raceway can seat up to 7,500 people. However, should the memorial take place there, coronavirus protocol would cap capacity at 20%.

Currently, no plans for the MC’s memorial have been disclosed by his family, but private and public events are likely in the works.
