DMX fans in Memphis and New York didn't get their fill of the rapper over the weekend as planned, reports CNN. The 48-year-old's team announced Saturday on his Instagram account that DMX had decided to enter rehab and apologized for being a no-show. The brief statement notes that "in his ongoing commitment to putting family and sobriety first, DMX has checked himself into a rehab facility." The post has more than 190,000 likes as of this writing. Billboard notes DMX was last in rehab in 2017. (Metallica's tour got put on hold last month over rehab as well.)
