Welcome to our April 15, 2021, DMX Commemorative Issue.
This month, we pushed back the issue a few days because we wanted to celebrate the Life and Legacy of Earl ‘DMX’ Simmons. We dedicated the entire issue to The Dog. We covered the Vigils in White Plains, Mount Vernon, and Yonkers, previous performances at City Fest 2019 in Mount Vernon, and his first concert at the Westchester County Center. We shared memories from several individuals like Congressman Jamaal Bowman.
We noticed many media outlets talked about the issues DMX dealt with, uplifted the negative aspects of his life, and felt we had to be the ones to celebrate him. This issue is for the fans, for the hood, for the streets. We hope you enjoy this issue, especially those who love him and everyone in Yonkers, this ones for you. Thank you to everyone who helped make this issue possible. Special shoutout to Lorraine Lopez, who probably worked on this issue as hard as I did, calling everyone for pictures, for quotes, for information, for advertising, this issue would not have been possible without her. We added four extra pages to the issue and ordered extra copies so we could saturate the city of Yonkers!
DMX meant so much to so many, and we pray we did him proud. Born in Mount Vernon, raised in Yonkers, lived in White Plains, everyone in Westchester County claims him as their own. He repped Westchester to the fullest, and Black Westchester thought it was only fitting we rep him just as hard; we miss you Dog, thanks for the music, the prayers, and all you have done.
We would like to take this time to thank all the readers, listeners, supporters, sponsors, contributors, and advertisers for their support in our effort to deliver the “News With The Black Point Of View,” since 2014. Send us your feedback, let us know what you think of this issue. Let us know subjects/topics you would like to see us cover in the future and send your letters to the editor to BlackWestchesterMag@gmail.com.
Peace and Blessings
