DMX Plays Wheelchair Ball With Injured Troops

The rapper says it made his day. Watch the video here. 


At a San Antonio show last week, when a fan asked DMX if he would visit the troops at nearby Fort Sam Houston, he said yes. TMZ reports that he didn't just show up: He hopped into a wheelchair and played a game of basketball with some of the injured soldiers. In a soft moment, the hardened rapper (who was released from prison in July) said of the event, "It made my day as much as it did their day. One told me that I gave him the best early Christmas gift he ever got, and that has me still smiling."
