DMX is on the road to recovery. The Dark Man has reportedly checked himself into a rehab facility days after abruptly cancelling dates on the Ruff Ryders reunion tour due to a “medical emergency.”

DMX’s manager Pat Gallo released a statement on X’s voluntary decision to seek help in a statement to TMZ. “It is important right now that he take some time off to focus on his health so that he can be a better father, friend and entertainer,” he explained.

“We are eternally grateful for the outpouring of concern and support that has poured in. We ask that you please keep X in your prayers as he embraces your support,” the statement concluded.

The rapper, who has been open about his struggles with addiction, reportedly felt like he was “moving to a dark place” and sought after treatment to “make sure that he stayed on the right path.”

We’re rooting for you DMX!
