Then I started to dwell on the "hood" – life in the ghetto – and crime, and drugs, and murder – and how dangerous people come to the streets and hang out, and wait, for easy, soft prey like me. I wondered what how it would feel to be person like that.

I was in this state of mind when I got a press screening invitation for a yet to be released movie called “Never Die Alone”, exactly the kind of film the pre-mugging me would never go to in a million years. It starred someone I never heard of – a rap artist turned actor named DMX, who unbeknownst to me at the time was about to become this cover story of Dish.

Well, much to my surprise, I really appreciated this movie! To me, it had everything going for it – a great premise, an unusual story, an uncomfortable top-note of sadness, and a great moral lesson that didn’t hit you over the head. The script was tremendous, and who would have known that new-to-me DMX could do such a great job with his character, King David. You might have thought he was King David. Well, silly me. As it turns out, he is King David, of course. And just the kind of man I’d been wondering about. Dangerous. Beautiful. Remorseless. Deadly.
