The DMX HBO documentary drops in a few days and the recently released trailer alone was enough to get us hyped up.
DMX’s ‘Try Not to Understand’ release date
Earl ‘DMX’ Simmons died in April 2021 following a drug overdose, a vice he valiantly fought against his whole life.
The documentary, available on HBO Max from Thursday 25 November 2021, documents the 12 months that followed the 50-year-old’s release from prison in 2019, where he’d spent a year doing time for tax evasion.
Executive produced by The Ringer‘s Bill Simmons, the DMX HBO documentary will give audiences a first-person account of the trials and tribulations X fought through to achieve his mission as a devout Christian.
In all of his interactions, be it with family, friends, die-hard fans, or complete strangers, DMX offered words of encouragement and hope, consciously neglecting his own demons which, in the end, would be his undoing.
Here’s the trailer of the documentary that shows, for the first time, intimate moments shared by DMX and his people a year before his passing.
How to watch DMX HBO Documentary in South Africa
The documentary will be an exclusive premiere on HBO Max. Unfortunately, this streaming service is not available in South Africa. This, however, does not mean that you can’t tune into the premiere.
The simplest way to avoid missing out on the documentary is subscribing to a well-reputed virtual private network (VPN). This software hides your computer’s IP address and cloaks it with a mask that tricks the browser into thinking that the request comes from another location.
In essence, a VPN can make a browser think your connection is pinging from the United States, from the comfort of your basement in Cape Town, South Africa.
With a reputed VPN subscription activated, South Africans can download and sign up to HBO Max for a maximum monthly premium of R205 ($14.99).
