While DMX fans will want to tune in, those unfamiliar with the rapper may be left scratching their heads. Many scenes feature DMX on his cell phone, and it's often extremely difficult to make out what the person on the line is saying, even with the addition of subtitles. What's more, the scenes in which viewers see the rapper go about his life (grocery shopping, pumping gas) are rather dull. Between the frequent swearing (harsher words are bleeped), DMX's very questionable status as a role model, and some of the series' heavier content, this one's not for the younger set.
