Kanye West is paying tribute to DMX with a t-shirt from Balenciaga. The music-fashion mogul commissioned the luxury line to produce a t-shirt in honor of X’s tragic passing.
Made available on April 24, the long-sleeve shirt features a printed on image of X flanked by two crosses. The acronym R.I.P. is above his head while his birth and death dates are shown on the sleeve. The back features the phrase “In Loving Memory” toward the bottom. The shirt only comes in black and can be purchased for $200 at dmx-tribute.com. The net proceeds will go to DMX’s family, according to the site.

The new release comes the same day as X’s public memorial service, which is took place in Brooklyn, N.Y. at the Barclays’s Center. At the same memorial, Kanye West and the Sunday Service Choir also paid tribute to DMX with several musical performances. The memorial is also extended on April 25th with a private ceremony at 2:30 p.m. EST that will be attended by only X’s close friends and family at an undisclosed location. It will also be broadcast live on BET and X’s YouTube account.
