A memorial is being planned to remember the life of rapper DMX at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn next weekend, a source familiar with the plan tells News 4.
More details are expected next week but preliminary planning is underway for an afternoon memorial on Saturday, April 24.
The event would be for family and friends only, the source said. There will be no public tickets available as the arena must limit event attendance to 10 percent capacity.
Although the memorial will be a private in-person event, News 4 was told the event will be livestreamed.
