DMX Gets “Life Changing” Therapy With Dr. Drew |Video|


It appears that rapper DMX is ready to change his life — or at least be open to talk about it. The Ruff Ryder rapper appeared on “Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers” yesterday where he opend up about being abused as a child by his mother. According to X:

“It got pretty bad…there was plenty of days I couldn’t sit down at school. She used to have these three extension chords that she braided together. Sometimes we would get it with that. THAT was rough!”

DMX, who has 10 children, also revealed that he does use physical discipline his own kids.

“You don’t really have to beat them. That one time…smack them on the a__ with a belt a couple of times and they’ll get the point. It was not continual beating. Anybody you’ve got to beat over and over again, evidently it’s not working.”

X explains why his disciplinary measures aren’t so extreme:

“Yeah. That’s why I talk to my kids first. I sit them down and explain to them what they did wrong. If I see that they are genuinely remorseful about the situation, then I’ll let it go.”

Check out the full interview after the break. Is DMX passing on a bad trait, or is he just being old school?
