Watch the DMX memorial service in full

December 18th has been declared Earl ‘DMX’ Simmons Day by New York State

A memorial service to late rapper DMX is now available to watch online.

Last Saturday (24th), the Celebration of Life for Earl "DMX" Simmons took place at the Barclay Centre in Brooklyn, New York. Simmons passed away earlier this month aged 50, after being placed on life support following a heart attack.

The memorial service, which was livestreamed, followed a private funeral service for family and friends, and features performances from the likes of Eve, Nas and Swizz Beatz, as well as Kanye West and his Sunday Service choir. Ahead of the event, West teamed up with fashion house Balenciaga as Yeezy to design a $200 fundraising t-shirt for DMX's family.

It was also revealed during the stream that the New York State government had declared Simmons' birthday, 18th December, as Earl "DMX" Simmons Day. Last week, it was announced that DMX would be honoured in his hometown of Yonkers, New York with a street or statue named after him.
