Rapper DMX voluntarily checked in to rehab as he vowed to put "family and sobriety" first in order to get his life in order.


It hasn't been an easy journey for DMX who's gone from prison to having problems with alcoholism. Now, DMX decided to voluntarily check himself into rehab in order to fix his relationships with all those around him, especially his family.

Announcing His Rehab Stint

His team decided to make an announcement on his Instagram about the whole ordeal, saying:

“In his ongoing commitment to putting family and sobriety first, DMX has checked himself into a rehab facility. He apologizes for his cancelled shows and thanks his fans for their continued support.”


Post-Prison Life

DMX seemed to have his music career back on track prior to rehab, as he went on tour for the 20th anniversary of his "It's Dark and Hell Is Hot" album and performed at festivals like SXSW and Rolling Loud: Miami.

Back in January, he was released from prison after beginning to pay a $2.3 million restitution due to a guilty plea on tax evasion.


Putting Family and Sobriety First

However, while his career was going up, so was his exposure to different vices that come with the hip-hop lifestyle. Realizing how much it took a toll on him, he decided to back off from it for a while.

He was scheduled to perform at the Three 6 Mafia reunion concert and Day 2 of Rolling Loud in New York but decided to cancel before things could get worse for him.


A Sweet Reunion with Family

When he was released from prison after serving one year, he made sure to spend time with his fiance, Desiree Lindstrom, and their two-year-old son Exodus. The happy family headed out for some good food after he walked free from the Gilmer Federal Correctional Institution in West Virginia.

Now that he's decided to go to rehab, Desiree and Exodus would have to deal with not seeing DMX for a while yet again, but this time, for something that could ultimately help their family for the better.

Hoping that DMX's stint in rehab turns out well, they await their next sweet reunion where they can finally enjoy being a family without any hidden issues, vices, or troubles to think about.
