DMX’s legacy will forever live on in the hiphop world, and we thank him for giving us the best for 3 decades…it is reported that Def Jaml gave back and covered his funeral fees.
DMX’s funeral (paid by Def Jam)
According to X’s probate files, which were acquired by TMZ — Def Jam Recordings gladly paid the bill Brooks Memorial Home Inc. in Yonkers, NY sent to the family. The receipt, which was dated May 5, 2021, included the services of Earl Simmons — DMX’s full government name.
Additionally, the costs (from the documents) covered the transferal of remains to the funeral home, embalming … as well as the hearse and flowers. Nobody has mentioned the grand monster truck that carried DMX’s casket to the Barclays Center celebration of life in Brooklyn, but it was very memorable.
Friends and memories
Additional pieces such as the customized red casket that cost $7,450, helped create the total of $35,228.13, which Def Jam paid for. At the ripe age of 50, DMX died which followed an overdose back in April. DMX’s kids and notable friends such as Nas, Eve, and the original Ruff Ryders gave a heartful speech
at his service.
