DMX’s casket escorted to memorial on MONSTER TRUCK as fans bring New York to a standstill.

DMX’s casket was escorted to his memorial on the back of an enormous monster truck as fans rode their motorcycles and managed to bring New York traffic to a standstill.

The huge black truck emblazoned with “Long Live DMX” took the late rapper’s body from his home town of Yonkers to Brooklyn, NYC, on Saturday afternoon for the service at the Barclays Center.

The truck which carried DMX’s red coffin on its trailer was flanked by members of the Ruff Ryders label along with hundreds of motorbikes.

Rapper and actor DMX or Dark Man X, whose real name was Earl Simmons, died on April 9 at the age of 50.

He had suffered a heart attack the week before at his home in White Plains, New York, which has been attributed to a drugs overdose but this has not been confirmed by his family.

The procession kicked-off at midday in Yonkers, where DMX spent his childhood from the age of five in the School Street Projects, before gaining worldwide stardom.
