DMX Comes Clean

May 24, 2010

Incarcerated rapper Earl “DMX” Simmons will help re-launch VH1’s “Behind The Music” series next month by discussing his personal life from childhood to rap stardom. According to reports, DMX will be one of seven artists including Christina Aguilera, Eve, Courtney Love, Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Lopez and Usher to help relaunch the popular Behind The Music series on VH1. DMX kicks off the series on Monday June 7 at 8:00 pm (7 central time). It will trace DMX’s journey from his rough childhood where violent beatings from his mother led to a life of crime and jail time, to becoming one of the most successful hip hop artists of today. Viewers will get an in-depth look at DMX’s battle to the top of the music charts, becoming the first hip-hop artist to have five consecutive records debut at number one and crossing over into a successful movie career. He also comes clean about his criminal record, love life and his 25 year-long struggle with drug addiction. 25 years? Just exactly how old is DMX and what type of drugs was/is he on? I have to watch this when it airs.
