TSR continued and revealed, ‘One of DMX’s last public performances was when he showed up and performed at Kanye’s Sunday Service—so it’s fitting that Ye would decide to honor him in a special way, while also doing his part to help his family. Under the umbrella of Yeezy, Kanye’s billion-dollar brand, Balenciaga designed a special tribute T-Shirt for DMX, with all of the proceeds going directly to his family. The T-Shirt is on sale for $200 beginning today and can be purchased at http://dmx-tribute.com/. SWIPE to see the shirt.’
Just to refresh your memory, DMX’s public memorial will be held at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
‘Although the centre has a capacity of 19,000, there will be a limited capacity due to COVID-19 restrictions. Following the memorial, DMX’s family will have an intimate funeral service,’ TSR noted.
someone said: ‘$200 … come on now, true fans can’t afford that,’ and a commenter posted this: ‘Amazing but he could used a black-owned business 🙃’
Someone else said: ‘Beautiful gesture but the level of creativity on this tribute piece is elementary af,’ and another commenter said: ‘I will be purchasing a shirt for myself and ALL of my staff. Rest in power, X. 🕊️✊🏾🕊️’
Regarding Kanye, he’s separated from Kim Kardashian not too long ago.
