Over the years, DMX has been open about his problems with alcohol and mental health. The 50-year-old rapper reluctantly discussed his various identities during an interview for the BET documentary The Ruff Ryders Chronicles.

“They’re not the same,” he explained. “I have a few things and a few people that help me get through life. I don’t want everyone to know what’s going on. I don’t mention them. You’ve already gotten me to mention them. No way. They’re there to help me get through my days. I’m not sure whether I made them or whether God gave them to me, or if conditions and circumstances gave them to me.”

DMX revealed in another interview that he was coerced into smoking crack at the age of 14, which started his long journey into drug abuse issues.

He defined the moment as the birth of a beast. “I wouldn’t do anything like that to my worst enemy. That is not something I would wish on my worst enemy. Particularly for someone you claim to love. Why would you do something like that?”
