DMX Battles Bi-Polar Disorder + Otis Freestyle

Posted By on August 5, 2011

     Rapper DMX recently opened up about his battle with Bipolar-disorder, admitting that often at any-given time he gets confused to which personality he is currently embodying. X says that his rap persona is the evil personality while "Earl" represents his nicer self.

The 40-year-old rapper has admitted to suffering from bipolar disorder. He claims he doesn't really know how to separate Earl Simmons from "X." "X, X is the bad guy," DMX argues. "I used to be really clear about who was what and what each characteristics each personality had, but at this point I'm not even sure there is a difference." "I'm Earl when I'm with my children," DMX replied with sad emotion. "I miss my children, I miss my children, I miss my children." Instead of drugs, DMX said music is his fix now. Each day a new beginning. (ABC 15 News)
