Do The Right Thing –
Oct. 13, 2019 – The news comes after DMX failed to show for a performance at Def Jam’s 35th anniversary party on Thursday. The rapper, born Earl Simmons, is no stranger to rehab facilities and he has been open and candid about his struggle with addiction. Back in 2011 he told TMZ that he had beat his addiction, saying: ‘I have 10 kids. I have to drive them in the right direction, so I let the cocaine go.’ But then in 2017, he canceled three shows so that he could again head to rehab.
