DMX and Juice WRLD will be the focus of two new HBO documentaries set to air later this year, multiple outlets reported on Wednesday (Nov. 3).

DMX, who sadly passed away after being hospitalized this April, will be memorialized in DMX: Don’t Try to Understand, directed by Christopher Frierson. The documentary reportedly chronicles a year of DMX’s life after he was released from prison in 2019 and follows the late rap legend’s journey to rebuild his career and reconnect with his family and fans.

Promising “unfettered access” to the Yonkers star, the film will also include DMX’s struggle with drug addiction; his traumatic upbringing; and his dedication to his children, family and fans.

DMX: Don’t Try to Understand premieres on HBO and HBO Max on Nov. 25.

Juice WRLD’s story, meanwhile, will be examined in the documentary Juice WRLD: Into the Abyss, directed by Tommy Oliver. The film, which premieres on HBO and HBO Max on Dec. 16, follows the young star’s meteoric rise to fame; struggles with mental health and drug use; and his untimely passing at just 21 years old in December of 2019.

Juice WRLD: Into the Abyss will reportedly feature never-before-seen footage, unreleased music and interviews with music industry executives.

Both documentaries are part of HBO’s new “Music Box” series, which was created by The Ringer founder and CEO Bill Simmons. Other upcoming docs will reportedly center around Alanis Morissette, Kenny G and Robert Stigwood.

Another Juice WRLD documentary called Fighting Demons is also in the works, a trailer for which was debuted last week at Rolling Loud New York. DMX was also the focus of a previous documentary, the 2012 short film Undisputed, which coincided with the release of his seventh studio album of the same name. “The Ruff Ryders Chronicles” docuseries also arrived on BET that same year.
