Social media was flooded with posts showing short video snippets from the event, which turned out to gather hundreds of people. As mentioned above, DMX family members were there too, and to make sure there will be no disturbers, Angelo Ellerbee, who is a long-time publicist for Dark Man X, took the mic and asked the crowd to not botter X’s family with questions.
“Let’s not talk about negative here,” he said. “We ain’t gonna talk about nothing negative. We’re gonna lift up Earl and praise the Lord and get the gift to him. I just want us to understand — particularly the press — I’ve gotten 1,000 emails, but I’m going to really appreciate it if you respect his family. I don’t want any questions asked of any of them. I know you got jobs to do, but I’m gonna do mines too. I do handle the media, period,” Ellerbee said.
