Earl Simmons aka Dark Man X aka DMX made his splash on the scene in the early 90s. Those of us who lived for hip hop in that era were married to it and seen the moment DMX was a part (hell that he started) of explode. With great fame there almost always is a dark side of that fame. That darkness of fame was constantly tormenting X, due to demons from his past there was a struggle between artist and abuse. See X was tricked as a child into using drugs, and his addiction carried over into adulthood then to his celebrity. With millions came to a host of bad decisions, yet there was some light, X gave much of what he had to various people and organizations. He also was never known to be a flashy artist using cash, women, cars, and jewelry to the staples of his career.

Making history with 5 albums back to back debuting at number one X expressed his love for his faith in Jesus Christ. Well before there was a Kanye West’s Jesus Walks, X was praying on his albums and at his concerts. Again to the dark side, there were also conversations with the devil or some type of demonic character. This is like many of us, battling between faith and world trying to navigate a life of spiritual and carnal.

In death DMX can show us that we need to get our lives in order because tomorrow isn’t promised. Now if you don’t believe in a spiritual place after death this isn’t for you, but for those who have a belief that ‘It’s Dark and Hell is Hot”, you should look at the struggles of DMX spiritual vs carnal mind. To me being in the music industry brought DMX great pain and his soul was sold to the industry in order to survive. Of course there were many takers willing to exploit DMXs demons for gain. You can't serve two masters.

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
Joshua 24:15 KJV

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Matthew 6:24 KJV
