DMX’s family and friends will celebrate his life at a memorial service, which may include an appearance from Kanye West.
According to Page Six, Swizz Beatz has reached out to Yeezy to ask him to participate in the ceremony at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center this weekend.
DMX, who was known for his faith, delivered a prayer at Kanye’s Sunday Service series in 2019 after Kanye reached out to him. “I wouldn’t call it a church service. There’s no word,” X told GQ that year. “It’s joyful, which God says to do. We about to make a joyful noise. I enjoyed it. It was moving. I didn’t know what to expect, though. I didn’t know what to expect.”

The Ruff Ryders icon also led a prayer when Kanye brought Sunday Service to Coachella in April 2019.
DMX’s memorial will be held Saturday, April 24, two weeks after the 50-year-old rapper died after suffering a heart attack caused by a drug overdose. The service won’t be open to the public and will have limited capacity due to COVID-19.
