“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,” HBO said in a press release. 

The film captures DMX’s struggles with addiction, personal demons, family, and relationship with God in the last years of his life before he would tragically pass away in 2021. DMX: Don’t Try to Understand premieres November 25 on HBO and will also be available to stream on HBO Max.
