“[My mother] beat two teeth out of my f – – king mouth with a broom,” he told GQ in 2019 of the abuse he reportedly endured at the hands of his mother when DMX was only 6 years old. .

“Earl is a person who still holds onto a lot of things he suffered in the past, as a child,” his former manager, Nakia Walker, told Houston Press in 2011.  .

(Despite their problematic past, Simmons and his mother have since made amends.)

Simmons further lamented over the life-altering deception via the song “Pain,” in which he says: “I smoked crack at 14 for the first time / Given to me by a n – – – a that I idolized / My love is real, but after that, what I saw in his eyes / Was a snake, and who I loved was just a disguise.”

The harrowing incident would sound the starting pistol to Simmons’ lifelong battle with substance abuse

“But talking is actually one of the bravest things you can do

One of the bravest things you can do is … let it out.”
