‘Reading Rainbow’ taught us that we could grow up to be anything we wanted to be, and that we could fly twice as high as a butterfly. Rapper DMX — who has been arrested several times throughout the years for charges including drug possession, animal cruelty, reckless driving and identity falsification — taught us just how low a platinum-selling rapper can go when his ego and recklessness get out of hand.

So naturally, we present you this inevitable mashup of light and dark, it’s DMX meets ‘Reading Rainbow.’ The playground meets the mean streets!

We’re pretty sure LeVar Burton would not approve.
