DMX shares testimony during Bible study on Instagram Live – Music News
Written by admin on April 30, 2020
DMX kicked off the weekend by offering prayers and reading a Bible verse that he feels reflects what we’re all experiencing during these challenging times.
The rapper said on Instagram Live, as captured by The Shade Room, that God put it on his heart to speak to the world on Friday evening amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “You know I ain’t with showing everybody what I’m doing every minute,” DMX declared during the Instagram Live session. “That’s just not me. It’s not how I get down.”
A DMX sermon sounds exactly like you would think, with the same conviction, passion and intensity that brought us hit songs like “Ruff Ryders Anthem,” “Party Up (Up in Here),” “Slippin,” and “Who We Be.”
“A time for crying, and a time for laughing. A time for mourning, and a time for dancing,” he read from the Book of Ecclesiastes, which appears to speak to practicing social distancing.
“A time for embracing, and a time for avoiding embraces. …what? Come on, come on,” he said before repeating the line again.
Despite several stints in prison, a messy divorce and rehab, DMX has remained a prominent fixture in hip-hop over the years. He’s also known to share Bible verses in his music, during interviews, and at his concerts, closing some of his shows with prayer and songs like “Lord Give Me a Sign.“
“There are no words more powerful in the book and your prayer, your own prayer will do a lot better if someone else is praying for you,” he said.
