DMX & Idris Elba Post Up At Coachella


The DMX renaissance is in full swing. With many openly rooting for the rap legend’s ongoing comeback, X has been increasingly active in his dealings. In the months following his release from prison, DMX has already kicked off an It’s Dark And Hell Is Hot tour, moved to revitalize his cinematic career, laid down bangers in the studio, and given sermons at Kanye West‘s ongoing Sunday Service series. All things considered, X has the support of hip-hop behind him, and seeing him win brings joy to any self-respecting hip-hop head.

While he didn’t hold it down behind the pulpit for Kanye’s Coachella edition of Sunday Service, he was in attendance throughout the event. During his time roaming the festival grounds, X found himself running into Idris Elba, himself a legend in certain circles. The pair decided to post up for a picture, and one can only hope that discussions of the cinematic variety were held.
