People don’t fully grasp how serious folks are when they say drug addiction is bigger than you. You never stop being an addict….you may stop using but you are still addicted and you fight that battle everyday. Prayers for DMX.

I believe he was on drugs way before he was rich. He’s sadly been stuck in this cycle and I’m sure the money coming in ain’t making it easier on him to quit. Prayers for DMX 🙏🏽

Fuck the media for always using the most dark and demonic photos of Black people when they’re working to make us into the monsters in their narrative. Prayers for DMX and his friends + family.
