DMX is uplifting his fans in times of uncertainty.
On Friday (April 24), the New York bred-rapper hosted a virtual bible study session on Instagram Live. During his live-streamed event, DMX read scriptures and emphasized the importance of certain lines. During DMX’s reading, fans praised the rapper for sharing words of encouragement amid the COVID-19 pandemic that has a lot of people in a state of fear.
DMX’s virtual bible study session came after he announced last month that he is working on a new album. While appearing on Tory Lanez’s “Quarantine Radio,” the “Slippin’” musician shared the exciting news. “I’m down in Nashville, I’m working on the album,” X revealed without providing further details. X’s upcoming album will serve as the follow-up to Redemption of the Beast, which he released in 2015.
Last year, DMX found his way back to the stage in honor of his Las Vegas nightclub performance. The event marked a major milestone for X, who checked into rehab a few months prior. “When you fall down, get back up. Everyone here has been through some s—t and you never know what God is willing to do for you until you need him to do something for you,” he said to the audience during the show.
According to TMZ, X checked himself into rehab in October 2019 due to fears of relapsing. At the time, one of his kids was very sick with frequent hospital visits. He also released a lengthy statement to his social media account about his life update. “In his ongoing commitment to putting family and sobriety first, DMX has checked himself into a rehab facility. He apologizes for his canceled shows and thanks to his fans for their continued support,” the statement read.
