Famous Dex is taking the first step towards becoming healthy again.
According to AllHipHop, the “Pick It Up” emcee reportedly check into rehab and Rich The Kid was right by his side. Over the weekend, disturbing photos surfaced of Dex and fans were extremely concerned about his health. On Saturday (Dec. 19), he uploaded a video of himself, seemingly intoxicated, rapping the lyrics to a new song. He also showed off two new face tattoos that read, “Sad” and “Love.” He then took to Twitter to tweet, “I don’t wanna smile no more.”
The Chicago native shared a message with his fans on his Instagram story on Sunday (Dec. 20) — before he entered the rehab facility. “Be back soon,” he wrote, followed by red and pink emoji hearts.
Dex has battled with drugs and alcohol addiction in the past. He previously spoke to the outlet about trying to live a more sober life. “I stopped when I stopped,” he said. “I mean, nothing’s easy when you’re doing something for so long, especially when it becomes a habit. You’re not holding science, I’m not a fiend for it. You are who you hang around, I’m around the right people who are telling me that’s not the right thing to do.”
Last month, NLE Choppa took to Twitter to express how worried he was about Dex’s health. He also made a plea to his record label, 300 Entertainment, to get him some help.
“I’ve never been the type to be in folk’s business, but @300 y’all see @FamousDex obviously on drugs too heavy. Can y’all at least try surrounding that man around somebody with his best interest?” the “Walk ‘Em Down” rapper tweeted. “Help dude out, or somebody who already is in his ear uplift dude. He NEEDING it.”
“Mane, if I wanted to dm somebody about a cause it’s harder cause I don’t have an IG,” he continued. “Some people Twitter DM don’t show and plus this publicly needed to be said cause it’ll reach more people to actually help someone instead everything getting made as a joke until the joke be on bro.”
The REVOLT team would send well wishes to Famous Dex at this time.
