New York rap veteran Talib Kweli is pulling for Dark Man X. The hip-hop veteran has shared major support for DMX following his recent check-in to a rehabilitation center.

On Tuesday, Kweli went to Instagram to salute X and call him a living rap legend.

This past weekend, X’s Instagram page announced the sudden decision crediting family and sobriety as key inspirations.

According to reports, X recently went ghost for a planned performance in New York for Def Jam’s 35th anniversary party.

“He was literally MIA. Fabolous and Jadakiss saved the day in the eleventh hour,” an insider told Page Six. Another insider told us the rapper was a “no show for personal reasons.” Fab and Kiss performed hits such as “Breathe” and “We Gonna Make It” for 750 guests including 2 Chainz, TJ Porter, Fetty Luciano, Slick Rick, Stretch & Bobbito, DJ Premier, Teyana Taylor and Def Jam’s CEO Paul Rosenberg.

A few weeks ago, X released his new “Just In Case” music video with Rick Ross and Swizz Beatz.
