    DMX and his son Xavier were always the answers to each other's problems. It feels like today even the most important blood relationships are treated as disposable as toilet paper. The moment of the film where X talks about his horrifying relationship with his abusive mother who gave him away and the segments with his son Xavier regarding their almost nonexistent relationship and attempt to save his father will stick with me forever. You'll never realize just to the degree of how important family really is until it is way too late. Every single time.
