Roommates, as we continue to mourn the passing of the legendary DMX, his friends and family celebrated his life today at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. It’s been a little over a week since the world was devastated to learn of DMX’s passing. Since then, celebrities, fans and friends have taken to the internet to express their condolences and share beautiful memories of DMX. Today, the culmination of all of the love turned into a beautiful ceremony that rode out in style. In the hours leading up to DMX’s celebration of life, the streets of NYC were filled with ‘Ruff Ryders’ as fans rode alongside DMX’s casket which was perched onto a huge truck that read ‘Long Live DMX.’ His procession was accompanied by what looked like hundreds of motorcycles there to pay their respects to Dark Man X! See below to see a video of his procession:

See what he had to say below:
