DMX Speaks On Turning His Life Around, Helping Others

Dark Man X says that he wants to selflessly put troubled people on the right path.

DMX has been on the road to recovery since kicking his substance abuse problem and cleaning up his act. During an interview with KPLR 11 in St. Louis, Missouri, Dark Man X spoke on turning his life around for the better and using his experiences to help others better themselves.

“There were times where it appeared I had nothing to hold onto. Nothing to help me get through that. I’m a man of faith, and it’s good to know there are others out there like me,” he said. “Be grateful for the fact that you can see clearly. I appreciate the continued support, and I’m sure you have noticed, but I will never let you down in terms of the message and the delivery of the message. It’ll always be honest, it’ll always be to the point and it’ll always be uncompromised.”

He also spoke on his appearance on Dr. Drew’s “Lifechangers,” where he spoke to a young man to get him on the right path. The Ruff Ryder explained that seeks opportunities like that to selflessly help others.

“I was on there because hopefully, I was able to change somebody’s life and be a positive influence. Because there are so many negative things said. People don’t know the real me. Those are types of things that I not only enjoy doing, but I do them on the regular. I don’t do it for the fame, I don’t do it for the publicity. I do it because it needs to be done. So it’s great to have that side of me shown.”

    You aren't turning your life around if you're just chasing your tail.

    I will ALWAYS be a DMX fan because regardless of his issues (which we all have) he has maintained his faith. Thats why he has made it through because when you lean on the Lord you are never alone. On his albums there are prayers. I listen to them often and they are REAL (not implying that the prayer might be fake but REAL in the sense that they have deep messages and he is honestly talking from his heart). So no matter how much you hate you can't deny that he is a man of principle .....he just gotta leave them drugs alone and he'll be alright! MsJheriWorldwide

    tired of these rappers acting like they're prophets sent here to deliver a "message" get the fuck outta here ! rappers dont cure the cancer, they just rhyme !! before talkin bout helping people to get onto the right path just try to keep walking on it without being pushed out of it ! if X want to change the world he betta starts with his own family and private life, succeed to it, and then, maybe, and i underline the "maybe", he might talk bout gettin people on the right path ! and i dont even get into rappers writing books bout their lives and shit ...

    • Pott Street-Family

      What is the point hating on someone trying to do good? Perhaps X helping others will also help him & help to keep him on the right path.

    • ETK

      what else do you expect them to do man? think about it, rappers are day in, day out, spittin about themselves... of course they're gonna write books on themselves. and with the state of hip-hop, of course some of them are gonna try to be "prophets sending a message". hell, hip-hop's been about that since its very beginnings! why you hatin on a core part of hip-hop? do you wanna shake your ass to club and money/cars beats for the rest of your life? cause guess what, some rappers actually speak through to people. and now this nigga, DMX, just got outta jail.. he wants to reform. Any rapper, hell any person who takes themselves seriously would wanna get on the right path and start helpin people, cause he's not gettin any younger. and he don't want young niggas to go through the same shit he did, or worse
