DMX has checked into rehab after postponing a string of concert dates, TMZ reports. According to the site, the rapper voluntarily checked himself into a treatment center in Southern California on Thursday, April 27.
The move comes after the “Party Up” artist canceled three shows this week due to a “medical emergency.”
In a statement to fans, DMX’s manager Pat Gallo expressed that it’s “important right now that he take some time off to focus on his health so that he can be a better father, friend and entertainer.”
The rapper has previously sought treatment for substance abuse and is the dad of 15 kids. He welcomed his youngest child, a boy named Exodus, this past August with girlfriend Desiree Lindstrom.
