(FreshAsFrankie) DMX’s behavior during a Ruff Ryders reunion concert last weekend was odd to say the least. He ranted and slurred his words.
According to TMZ, the “Party Up” hit maker was drinking heavily prior to performing.
X, born Earl Simmons, had three concerts scheduled this week, but suddendly cancelled them all, citing an unspecified medical issue.
Those close to him are concerned about his health and fear he may have relapsed.
DMX has long battled an addiction to crack cocaine. We hope the hip hop legend has left those days behind him and is just resting up.
