“We just want all the people out here, there will be boxes outside, come grab on, feel free,” SP The Ghost said in an Instagram video outside School Street. “It’s produce, we’re honoring The Dog, we love him, we gonna keep repping him. He’s physically gone but energy never dies. So for all the people whether you are in School Street, on School School street, close to School Street, come through, get a box. We’re gonna honor our brother to the fullest. we are not stopping, this ain’t a one-time thing.”

“Today Styles P and the D-block squad delivered pallets of food to our community,” Hector ‘Hector The Connector’ Santiago shares with Black Westchester. “It doesn’t surprise me because these guys have been humble to the town throughout the years of success. They’re always giving back, supporting locals, making guest appearances and mentoring dozens in our community. They never ask for anything in return but for the individuals to pay it forward. Much love and respect to the Yonkers OGs for constantly paving the way for our future leaders.”
The Lox and DMX are known for giving back to the community, including dinners on Thanksgiving at Nepperhan Community Center. Its one of the many things DMX will be remembered for and his Ruff Ryders, The Lox brethren say they will continue to carry on in honor of The Dog.
