DMX Speaks On His Mentor Tricking Him Into Smoking Crack at 14

DMXs’ journey through fame has been interesting to say the least. There have been incredible chart topping highs and public lows. Regardless of the rollercoaster that is his music career, his legend status can’t be debated. The prison stints, drug charges, and other miscellaneous legal issues aside, Hip-Hop fans know that there is way more to him. During his interview with Talib Kweli, the New York rap legend touched on his introduction to the rap game, including how his mentor, Ready Ron, tricked him into smoking crack cocaine at the tender age of 14.

As DMX emotionally struggled to recall the situation, he detailed that it happened during a friend's birthday and since he didn’t smoke or drink at the time he declined the blunt that was being passed around, until it was offered to him by Ready Ron.

"Why would you do that to a child? He knew how I looked up to him. Why would you do that to somebody who looks up to you...A monster was born. That monster was born."


The ten minute interview is emotionally charged and shows a softer side of DMX.
