DMX, who passed away in early April, was a representative artist at the label Ruff Ryders Entertainment. After his death, his popular song “Ruff Ryders’Anthem,” re-elevated at 16th place on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. So it is natural to connect DMX and the image of ‘Rough Rider.’
In line with the image of DMX, the coffin was moved in a very ‘Ruff Ryders’ way. DMX’s coffin was placed on a giant monster truck with numerous riders following him for a memorial service in Brooklyn last weekend.
According to the report, about 2,000 riders followed DMX’s coffin. Meanwhile, New York City, which is also the city where DMX was born and died, has decided to officially establish December 18, the day of DMX’s birth, as ‘DMX Day.’
