After a return to the spotlight following his release from prison earlier this year, DMX has chosen to go back to rehab.
A member of his team wrote on his Instagram page, 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.”
X has battled substance abuse and personal demons and has been vocal about his battles for years. Back in 2017, the rapper canceled three shows in California before heading to a rehab facility. That same year, he checked into a substance abuse facility in New England while on house arrest.
2019 has been a steady year for X. He resigned to his long-time label home Def Jam, went on tour for the 20th anniversary of his landmark debut album It’s Dark and Hell is Hot and performed at various festivals including SXSW and Rolling Loud: Miami. He was set to perform at Three 6 Mafia’s reunion concert in Memphis on Saturday and at Rolling Loud: New York on Sunday.
No timetable has been revealed for when the rapper will get back on the road. Get well soon, Dark Man X!
