DMX proves that it’s hard to teach an old dog new tricks. The rapper recently sat down for a taping of “Iyanla: Fix My Life” on OWN and from a sneak preview (above), it seems that X flipped out on the TV self-help guru.
“Shut the f— up man. You ain’t got to be intimidated man. Just stop running your mouth!” he yells at her in one scene.
But Iyanla isn’t having it. “He don’t get to roll up in our park and play his games,” she tells her crew. After asking him if he’s on drugs, Iyanla later barks back at the rapper, “You don’t get to speak to me EVER AGAIN!” The explosive episode airs on April 13 on Oprah’s OWN at 10pm ET.
DMX has faced a history of personal challenges including drug addiction and several arrests. Last year, the rapper visited “RapFix Live” and showed an array of emotions, from crying for his mother to calling out new rappers like Drake.
“Drake,” DMX blurted out while “RapFix Live” host Sway Calloway was still mid-sentence, “He has talent, but it’s kinda redundant, it’s kinda the same all the time to me personally. It’s an annoying sound,” he said. X compared the Take Care MC’s sound to a washing machine and mocked him while making a grating noise.
