Just three weeks before his untimely death, DMX sat down in front of the cameras for an episode of UNCENSORED. HollywoodLife has an EXCLUSIVE preview of his last interview, which features the rapper talking about seeing a $1 million check for the first time in his life. “I remember doing Exit Wounds in Canada, Toronto, and it was the first time I’d seen a million-dollar check,” DMX admits in our EXCLUSIVE sneak peek.

The rapper recalls hanging out with Mekhi Phifer, Terrence Howard, and Anthony Anderson at the time. “We would just hang out together,” DMX says. He reveals they all took a picture with the $1 million check and almost couldn’t believe it was right in front of them. “You can make up to a million dollars, but just one check for a million dollars, and that wasn’t even the full price? Yeah…” DMX continues.
