In this episode, we speak to Hip Hop luminary and Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Darryl “DMC” McDaniels. Imagine being the biggest artist in the world, having all the money, property and prestige and wanting to kill yourself. DMC talks openly and honestly about the misgivings of success, level of invisibility he felt and how turning to alcohol was his remedy. He also opens up about his early childhood and love of comic books, wanting to be a comic book artist and not in a rap group and how he overcame his use with the help of a 12-step program and therapy. Serch and Kyle ask why he decided to take another route and his answers will shock you, as much as they will make you happy he chose the life he has today. Today, DMC is focused on his comic book company Darryl Make Comics and his sobriety. As a result, he inspires so many others to choose sobriety and recovery over a life of active addiction.
