DMX surprised a homeless support group with an inspiring speech


When Earl "DMX" Simmons addresses a crowd, it's usually to drop bars in his trademark furiously aggressive rapping.

But on Wednesday, he gave an inspiring speech to Ready, Willing & Able Philadelphia, a homeless support group in Philadelphia, instead. The group helps homeless men find housing and jobs. 

DMX spoke about his battles with drug abuse, referencing an overdose that left him medically dead for four minutes. 

Here's a clip of his speech.

The speech did transition to a rap verse. This is DMX, after all.
