As per the reports of TMZ, the talented rapper, DMX is in rehab after he postponed the dates of his concerts. The reports claim that the rapper took a voluntary admission in a drug and alcohol rehab in Southern California on Thursday, April 27th.

In the recent Ruff Ryders reunion show, DMX had something weird in him. His fans, family, and friends were all concerned about the rapper’s condition after watching him act weird during the show. He had a really difficult time performing during the concert. He was not able to sing rather was just gargling some difficult to hear sounds that were nowhere close to the lyrics.
He has checked into the rehab on its own but definitely had people behind him to push him to do so. His Manager Gallo and Ex-wife Tashera Simmons helped him in taking this decision. We are eternally grateful for the outpouring of concern and support that has poured in. We ask that you please keep X in your prayers as he embraces your support.”
