In emotional interview, rapper DMX has revealed the origins of his addiction to crack.
Speaking on Talib Kweli “People’s Party” podcast, DMX said his journey with drug abuse started at just 14 years old, when his mentor Ready Ron gave him a crack-laced blunt without telling him what he smoked.
“He passed the blunt around and… I hit the blunt. I never felt like this before it f—ed me up. I later found out that he laced the blunt with crack,” DMX said. “Why would you do that to a child?
He was like 30 and he knew I looked up to him. Why would you do that to someone who looks up to you?”
“Let me open this door and start dealing with this shit right now before it comes out at the wrong time and I just have a meltdown… that’s what’s helped with addiction and sobriety,” he said in the interview that aired on on Monday.
