Along with his musical career, DMX was also an Actor, starring in the 1998 film Belly and he also appeared in 2000′s Romeo Must Die with Jet Li and Aaliyah.
DMX regularly struggled with drugs and an addiction to crack cocaine that he said began at the age of 14, and was arrested for a number of charges, including drug possession, animal cruelty and tax evasion.
He entered rehab multiple times, most recently in October 2019, when he announced via Instagram that he was in an “ongoing commitment to putting family and sobriety first.”
