From TMZ:

DMX tells TMZ, he has finally kicked the drug addictions that kept him behind bars for years — and he has his children to thank.

X tells us, coke was his greatest demon after his latest prison release in July — “Everyone was taking advantage of me with my finances, trying to put me in the direction to fail. I have 10 kids. I have to drive them in the right direction, so I let the cocaine go.”

The rapper — real name Earl Simmons — says God also helped him through … telling us, “I am on a spiritual road to do right in my life. I am leaving out all negativity and going to stay on the right road to positive.”
