(AllHipHop News) The mayor of DMXs childhood home of Yonkers, New York has proposed plans to celebrate the late rap icons legacy with a special honor. Mayor Mike Spano wants to establish a lasting tribute to the Get It on the Floor hitmaker, which will likely take the form of a statue or a street named after him. He has also invited DMXs relatives to hold a public memorial service at the Yonkers Raceway, the citys largest outdoor venue, to allow family members, friends, and fans to gather safely amid ongoing COVID concerns. The horse racing facility can host 7,500 people, but under current restrictions, raceway bosses are operating at just 25 percent capacity. DMXs loved ones have yet to respond to Mayor Spanos offer, but according to TMZ, his family plans to host both a private and public funeral, with details expected to be announced in the coming days. A makeshift memorial has been set up outside White Plains Hospital in New York where the father of 15 passed away, with fans gathering to leave floral tributes and light candles in his memory.
