While, its obvious that DMX brought most of his problems on himself, its still sad to see him speak on it because you can just see the internal struggle between the X who wants to blame it on the world-the man-the game and the X who is trying to humble himself and be accountable for his current state.
Like when the interviewer asks him how he went from selling 28 million records, to sitting in that striped jumpsuit….I wonder what X almost answers before he cuts himself off.
And as crazy as DMX may be/seem, he’s a really smart, introspective figure. Just a tortured one. I remember this one time he came up to the Morning Show when Sway and I were on….it was chaotic because he couldn’t stop cursing and making dog noises…seriously….but his lucid moments were filled with really sharp observations about the music industry around him. (This was when he had issues with Jay-Z and LA Reid and was leaving for Sony. Which ended up being pointless.)
8 kids. wow.
