Rapper DMX Starring In New Reality Show ‘DMX: This Life of Mine’

Troubled Hip-Hop star DMX will once again document his life in a new reality show titled DMX: This Life of Mine.

 

The show will follow DMX’s attempt to resolve a string of legal problems, which include six arrests since May of 2008, the most recent one occurring last week in Miami, Florida.

 

This Life of Mine will also feature DMX attempting to rehabilitate to himself, as he simultaneously attempts to avoid being sent to prison for pending charges of possessing drug paraphernalia, possessing marijuana, animal cruelty charges and theft, for allegedly giving a fake name when he was treated at a Scottsdale hospital earlier this year.

 

“In many ways, my life has been an open book,” DMX told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “[But] I haven’t always been the one writing the story. With this show; however, people will get to see and hear with their own eyes and ears what really goes on in my life and I think they’ll come to understand me a little bit better with each episode.”

 

DMX: This Life of Mine is being produced in conjunction with Phoenix, Arizona based After Platinum Entertainment.

 

“When we were approached about doing this show, we knew right away that we wanted to be involved,” After Platinum CEO Ernie Romero said. “DMX is a complex man and this show will reveal his many sides: the street side and the spiritual side, all rolled up in one.”

 

While the show has yet to find a home, Romero said that several networks had already expressed interest in the show.

 

Romero said DMX: This Life of Mine will take an in depth look at DMX’s troubled life, which has become somewhat lampooned in the media, due to the frequency of his arrests.

 

DMX also believes the show will change the public’s perception about him.

 

“After watching this show, people will come to realize that despite all the stories and all the rumors about me, despite how well they may think they know me, there is another side to DMX that they have never seen and hopefully, it will make people question what they see Rand hear about me in the future,” DMX told AllHipHop.com in a statement.

DMX previously starred in his own reality show The Soul of a Man, which chronicled the troubled rapper’s life and legal problems.

 

The six-episode series, which was shot in the Arizona desert, featured DMX reevaulating his life, describing his parentless childhood, his battles with depression and thoughts of suicide and his interactions with fans.
