BIG3 - Week Five

The Universal Hip Hip Museum will honor DMX at its forthcoming opening in 2023. Construction is underway on the museum, and when it opens, there will be a collection and archive that he will be included in. Chief Curator of the museum said, "If Tupac was the heart of hip-hop, DMX was the soul. DMX was that realness, that grittiness, he didn't create the grittiness of DMX to rap -- that's who he was." The museum will be located in the Bronx.

That's not the only place X will be honored, Yonkers mayor, Mike Spano, is working hard to make sure DMX’s family doesn’t bear a heavy burden when it comes to a memorial in honor of the legendary rapper. Spano is offering up Yonkers Raceway, which is the largest outdoor venue in the city, which can hold up to 7,500 people, however with COVID restrictions in place the venue can only host at 20 percent capacity. The family has yet to confirm details of a memorial however TMZ says that a statue, a mural, or naming of a street is being planned to honor the rapper in the future.
