Born in a housing project, raised in the streets, and fueled by a deep anger at the world around him, Earl Simmons - aka superstar rapper, DMX - found a way to survive. Whether it was robbing and stealing, or spitting gritty and uncompromising rhymes about the life he led, one thing was certain: he would be redeemed. When billy clubs and prisons beat him down, he fought his way back up. When solitary confinement and wasted time threatened to kill his spirit, his voice broke through the darkness and rhymed. And when his dreams seemed too big, he looked to the heavens and prayed. This is the story of DMX - from his humble beginnings, to mass superstardom, to the adrenaline-fueled gangster life he can't leave behind. Uncompromising, uncensored and with a raw and powerful message that's impossible to ignore, this book goes beyond standard autobiography as it deconstructs the man, his vision and the dark voices that still haunt him today. Earl Simmons has released four albums. He has appeared in two films, Belly and Romeo Must Die. He lives in New York.About the Author:
