Kanye West Raises $1 Million For DMX’s Family With Tribute T-Shirt


Kanye West — a close friend of the late DMX — helped raise $1 million for the late rapper’s family through the sale of tribute T-shirts.

West, through his Yeezy brand, commissioned Balenciaga to design the T-shirt that, at $200 a piece, sold out within 24 hours over the weekend.

The proceeds will be given to the family of DMX, who was remembered Sunday at a private funeral service at Brooklyn’s Christian Cultural Center.

A day earlier, DMX — whose real name is Earl Simmons — was honored at a Brooklyn Barclays Center memorial attended by Yeezy.

West, who kept a low profile at the ceremony, also lent a helping hand with Saturday’s stage set-up, sources said. He recruited esteemed visual artist Akeem Smith to help design the layout.

Saturday’s memorial featured performances by Kanye West’s Sunday Service Choir, and words of grief and remembrance from New York hip-hop artists including Nas, Jadakiss, Eve and Swizz Beatz.

DMX childhood friend Jungle was taken off the program and decided to jump on stage anyway ...
