Just weeks after his untimely death, and days after his memorial service at Barclays Center, the New York State Senate has stepped up to honor DMX.
Today, the New York State Senate announced that they will consider December 18th, the late rapper's birthday, as DMX Day across the whole state of New York.
The announcement came from community activists Priscilla Echi and Erica Ford during DMX'S memorial, but it wasn't included in the streaming services, and why a lot of people missed it.
"Our New York State Senate has called December 18 Earl “DMX” Simmons Day. His lyrics were rapped on the Senate floor by Senator Jamal Bailey who introduced a resolution in his honor. He also has proclamations from Mayor Spano and Mayor Shawn Patterson Howard." - Priscilla Echi
Senator Bailey also had a lot of nice things to say about DMX...
" In New York, we have our own hip-hop royalty. He’s the Earl of Westchester County. He is DMX, he is one of the greatest hip hop artists that we will ever know. May he rest in peace and may his memory be a blessing."
