HBO has shared the official trailer for its upcoming DMX documentary, DMX: Don’t Try to Understand.

Set to premiere on November 25, Don’t Try to Understand follows the late rapper for a 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.”

The trailer sees X reuniting with friends and family, performing shows after his release and dealing with other complications, as well as his emotional interactions with fans. “I’m talking to you as a person who grew up right where you grew up at. I stole a car from right there,” he tells someone in one scene, followed by a clip of him hugging a fan and telling him, “Turn that pain into words.”

Watch the trailer above. DMX: Don’t Try to Understand premieres November 25 on HBO Max.

Elsewhere in music, Freddie Gibbs x Jadakiss, Earl Sweatshirt and Isaiah Rashad lead the week’s Best New Tracks.
