The music and fashion mogul commissioned the luxury line to produce a t-shirt in honor of Tragic death of X. Available on Saturday April 24, the long-sleeved shirt features an image print of X flanked by two crosses. The acronym RIP is above her head while her birth and death dates are listed on the sleeve. The back has the phrase “In Loving Memory” at the bottom. The shirt is only available in black and can be purchased for $ 200 at dmx-tribute.com. The net proceeds will go to the DMX family, according to the site.
The new version arrives the same day as X public memorial service, which takes place in Brooklyn, NY at Barclays’s Center. This will be followed tomorrow (April 25) by a private ceremony at 2:30 p.m. EST which only close friends and family of X will attend at an undisclosed location. It will also be broadcast live on BET and X’s YouTube account. It is not known if Kanye will attend the event, but X’s friend and frequent collaborator Swizz Beatz hope you will be present.
