EXCLUSIVE: DMX Talks Drug Use & Recovery

Published

on

DMX’s explosive sit down on Iyanla: Fix My Life aired Sunday night on OWN and ended with the rapper telling Iyanla “f*ck you” and storming out of a counseling session with her. Luckily, when we sat down with X, he was much more receptive to our questions about his drug use and road to recovery.

“I look forward to becoming a better person, you know, looking more at my faults”, the rapper told HipHollywood.

While sitting with Iyanla and his son, Xavier, things came to a head when X refused to have a relationship with his son that included “conditions”. Take a look below…

And while it may appear that the rapper has lost all hope, X told HH in August that his motivations for staying clean were, “My children, myself…the fact that I am just now starting to recognize the blessings God has for me.”

The Ruff Ryder also gave us some insight into how he handles trying to stay clean. “I look forward to making progress on a daily basis in everything, in every aspect of my life.”

Check out the full interview below.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
