DMX told TMZ that he has quit cocaine. The 40-year-old rapper admits that after his latest release from prison, he was still having a hard time staying on the straight and narrow. He explained, "Everyone was taking advantage of me with my finances, trying to put me in the direction to fail. I have 10 kids. I have to drive them in the right direction, so I let the cocaine go."

His pastor confirmed, "When [DMX] first came to my church he looked broken, sad, and full of struggle. Now you see a dramatic change. You see that the drugs and alcohol aren’t in his life."

Hopefully this means we won't get a new mugshot every few months.
