The DMX Challenge is attracting the netizens and particularly Earl lovers very much. While some are excited posing for the video, others are disappointed to discover that it had nothing to do with freestyle rapping.

A few reactions took a turn after they heard of all the women listed in the song. Perhaps, DMX wasn’t listed several women, but only one lady showing her different personalities. Some even pointed out the dark side to this black girl magic, as a few commenters said that we are living in the age of facial recognition software.

A report published:

“A few reactions took a new philosophical take on hearing all the women listed in “What They Really Want” after seeing all the quick cut videos. Perhaps, DMX wasn’t listed numerous women, but one lady and all her different personalities. What the #DMXChallenge can confirm, however, is that a lot people have a lot of selfie photos and videos saved on their phone.”

In 2017, Earl Simmons was arrested and charged with tax fraud. He even paid the court over $2.3 million in restitution and was sentenced for a year to jail. He was released from the Gilmer Federal Correctional Institution on 24th January. After a rough past, DMX is happy that he is receiving positive views from the audience on this challenge.
