Kanye West raises $1 million for DMX's family with tribute T-shirts

$1M for DMX's family

Kanye West has reportedly raised $1 million for late rapper DMX's family through the sale of designer tribute T-shirts.

According to sources, West, via his Yeezy brand, commissioned designers at Balenciaga to work on the garment, which sold out within 24 hours over the weekend.

The T-shirts were priced at $200 and the proceeds will be given to the family of DMX, who was remembered on Sunday at a private funeral service at Brooklyn's Christian Cultural Center.

His funeral came one day after the star, real name is Earl Simmons, was honoured at a Brooklyn Barclays Center memorial, which was attended by the Gold Digger rapper.

Kanye apparently lent a helping hand with Saturday's stage set-up and recruited esteemed visual artist Akeem Smith to help design the layout, insiders told the New York Post's Page Six gossip column.
