“I think we’ve always seen the depth of DMX. He’s always been an open book. He’s shared his life with us,” said Chuck Creekmoor, co-founder of AllHipHop.com. “But the interactions of his family were very revealing to me, especially with his youngest son and eldest son. And these are the parts that are going to make you tear up.”
