DMX’s team wrote in an Instagram caption, “In his ongoing commitment to putting family and sobriety first, DMX has checked himself into a rehab facility. He apologizes for his cancelled shows and thanks his fans for their continued support.”
The rapper was released from jail earlier this year in January and signed a new deal with Def Jam. Seeing that the rapper needed to take some time from himself to get clean, it seems Dark Man X had more to sort out internally.
This is a repeat occurrence for him, since the rapper canceled some California performances in 2017 for the same reason.
He reportedly was meant to perform at the Memphis reunion show of Three 6 Mafia on Saturday and later this year for Rolling Loud. Unfortunately for us, it could be a while until we see a show from him. Fortunately for him, he his getting the help he needs.
