DMX Quotes

Life gives everyone a chance to change but some people understand it and some don’t. If we understand this sign of nature, then no one can stop us from being successful.

One such opportunity was given to Earl Simmons, who was known by the stage name DMX which means “Dark Man X”. He is an American rapper and actor who started his rapping career in the 1990s.

Earl Simmons was born in Mount Vernon City, USA. His parents were very young at the time of his birth. His father Arnett Simmons did not contribute much to DMX’s life. His mother Joe Barker raised him single-handedly.

DMX was caught in a bad company from a very young age, due to which he became a part of many crimes by the age of 14. Disturbed by this, his mother sent him to a Children’s Home, but it did not bring any change in him.

But when his mother sent him to the group home, he was meet with other students who used to compose hip hop music. At this moment, nature gave Simmons a second chance. He liked hip-hop music and started writing songs.

When Simmons returned home, he met local rapper Ready Ron in the area, and the two began rapping together in partnership. That’s when Simmons named himself DMX.

In 1998, DMX released his debut album “It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot”, making him an overnight success. In just one week, 251,000 copies of his album were sold.

DMX was addicted to crack cocaine from the age of 14 as well smoked marijuana cigarettes. Due to this, he had bipolar disorder.

DMX was one such rapper who achieved great success in a very short time. He was very honest and emotional towards the fans. He once said, “I’m not an industry artist – I’m an artist in the industry.” He regretted the bad things he had done in his early life, he used to say that “I know I may have done some bad things, but I’m not a bad person.”

He renounced all bad things but could not give up intoxication and this became the reason for his death. From this, we should learn that we should keep distance from bad people and bad things in life. Because these things also harm the one we love with us.
