dmx nore drink champs

With his first interview since his health scare back in February, DMX chops it up with N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN on the latest episode of their Drink Champs podcast. Although it looks like he’s still on the road to recovery, X gives a whirlwind of an interview that includes stories about 2Pac and Puffy, hilarious quotes about the current state of rap (“there’s a lot of wack ass fucking rappers out there”) and preacher-level prayers.

At one point, DMX breaks down while talking about his prolonged substance abuse: “I survived a 25-year addiction. Not because of my own strength, not because of anything I did for myself or did to myself… God did it.”
