NYC: ‘He had a gift’: DMX remembered at emotional Brooklyn funeral service

DMX’s children shared moving and emotional memories of their famous father Sunday, speaking to hundreds of mourners during a private funeral service for the late rap icon.

“It makes me sad that my dad will never be able to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ ever to me again,” the rapper’s 9-year-old daughter, Aaliyah, said during the ceremony at Brooklyn’s Christian Cultural Center, which was streamed online.

“I was excited to come to New York and spend a week with him and meet some of my brothers and sisters. But God had other plans.”

She added, “I know my dad is in heaven. Even though he can’t talk back, I know I can still talk to him. I think it’s good that I get to call my dad a legend. Rest easy, Dad.”

Mourners at the Brooklyn hall heard similar tributes from several of DMX’s 15 children. The “Party Up” rapper’s red casket and the word “FAITH” in large, black letters were featured at the front of the room.
