On Tuesday morning, a Yonkers community unveiled a mural near the Calcagno public housing complex on School Street where DMX once lived. The mural, which measures 35 feet by 22 feet, was designed by NYC artist Floyd Simmons and took a little over two weeks to complete.
According to CBS New York, the mural was part of a restoration project on an existing mural, and residents asked that the restoration include a tribute to DMX.
DMX’s family including his fiancée Desiree Lindstrom were on hand for the unveiling.
