When it comes to DMX, his troubles and successes have been well-documented. But these days the Yonkers rapper seems to be doing good and keeping away from drugs as well as law enforcement.

X recently spoke with Talib Kweli's People's Party podcast and said that his mentor tricked him into smoking crack when he was a kid. [Jump to 1:05 mark].

"I was in Yonkers,” said DMX. “This guy Ready Ron, he was like an older brother to me. He would rap, and I would do the beatbox. I loved this guy like an older brother. Me and my mans did a robbery one night, and it was his birthday and we came back and split the money. I said, ‘Here yo, go get something nice for your birthday.’ So he came back with a blunt rolled up, and as I’m counting the money, he passed the blunt. I wasn’t pressed. I don’t really smoke."

“He passed the blunt around and I hit the blunt and I’m like, I was no longer focused on the money," he continued. "I’d never felt like this, it just f*cked me up ... I later found out that he laced the blunt with crack. Why would you do that to a child? He knew I looked up to him. Why would you do that to somebody who looks up to you? A monster was born. I wouldn’t do that to my worst enemy.  Especially for someone that you supposedly love."

What do you think about X's story?
