DMX’s Funeral Event Includes Nas + Eve

A livestream of the event clocks in at well over an hour. Along with Nas and Eve speaking on the late X, producer Swizz Beatz made his presence felt alongside Ruff Ryders members.

The 90-minute ceremony, which streamed live on YouTube, opened with a viral video of DMX and one of his daughters riding the Slingshot roller coaster as he eased her fears. “Daddy’s here,” he said. In an emotional moment, his 15 children came together to remember their father including Xavier Simmons, DMX’s eldest child, and another one of his daughters, who paid tribute to her dad with a rap in the cadence of X’s 1998 hit “Slippin’.” (Rap-Up)

Ruff Ryders Get Deep At DMX’s Service

Additional footage has started to circulate online showing rap crew Ruff Ryders on-stage at the emotional event. More specifically, Swizz Beatz used the livestream event to single out people for not doing enough for X during his time on Earth.

“I just wish all these people showed up for him when he was here. You got thousands of people claiming who they are and tickets and things like that. This man needed everybody. He didn’t need everybody when he’s not here, he needed everybody when he was here. We have to learn to celebrate each other while we’re here.”

Beatz took things even further by warning people ‘not’ to show up to his own memorial service if they didn’t hold him down while alive.

“I don’t want y’all to show up to my sh*t when I’m gone, unless you was showing up while I was here. I want to be sent off with the same love that I had when you were standing next to me. The things that I’m witnessing from my brother’s passing was a big educational thing for me to learn. I’m glad I got to see it at this age. A lot of people aren’t your friends, a lot of people aren’t your family.”
