A stirring and dark tale of a troubled young man born into a harsh living situation and environment. His passionate and poetic lyrics and his emotional stage shows are dictated by the severe peaks and valleys of DMX's life. From his early life of crime, stints in a boys' home and juvenile detention centers and jail and his introduction to crack cocaine, which would plague him forever, DMX shows how all the pain in his life fed his music. Released before X's most recent jail stint, with former Giant magazine Editor-in-Chief Smokey D. Fontaine, there's more stories to be told. And hopefully with a comeback on the horizon, this tale will have a happy ending.
