HBO has released the official trailer for the forthcoming DMX documentary, DMX: Don’t Try to Understand. The documentary follows X for a full year following his release from prison in 2019.
“DMX: DON’T TRY TO UNDERSTAND (November 25), directed by Christopher Frierson, focuses on a year in the life of rapper Earl “DMX” Simmons as he is released from prison in early 2019 and attempts to rebuild his career in the music industry and reconnect with family and fans. Unfolding in cinéma vérité style and with unfettered access, the film bears witness to a man searching for reinvention and redemption, striving to stay true to himself while reestablishing his roles as a father, an artist and an icon.”
DMX: Don’t Try to Understand will premier on HBO Max Thanksgiving weekend on November 25th.
