A new season of Iyanla: Fix My Life returns with a powerful 90-minute episode. Iyanla travels to multiplatinum rapper and actor DMX’s hometown of Yonkers, New York. There she tackles one of the most controversial sessions of her career.
It’s crazy to see where DMX is currently at in his life. The rapper was once one of my favorites and to me is still a legend through his back catalog. It’s a shame to see how much drugs can affect one. I hope this man gets real help, because this TV program sure won’t help none. I want to see DMX create another hit as big as “Party Up” was and not see him cleaning restaurants after closing on TMZ.
Anyhow, DMX apparently didn’t even give Iyanla: Fix My Life written consent to air this episode. DMX thought he was meeting with Iyanla to help him fix his life with his kids and family, but instead was bamboozled and she only focused on his struggles with drugs and poor decision making and he thinks it was her trying to make his image look worse. DMX‘s rep reached out to AllHipHop and had this to say about what you’re about to see…
“DMX agreed to be a guest on ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life’ with the understanding that she would be helping his relationships with his 10 children,” the statement says. “When he arrived for the taping, most of the content was focused on his struggles with drugs and poor parenting. Iyanla did not ‘fix’ DMX’s life just made his image worse, and does not have DMX’s personal written consent to use the footage.”
DMX‘s rep also used the media opportunity to plug an upcoming album DMX is working on, which he says will feature Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, Dr. Dre and more. He also plugged new feature film starring DMX, Mekhi Phifer and Ving Rhames titled Blame It On The Hustle.
