Before this past weekend, 12-year-old Grace Firley, a seventh grader at Ellsworth Elementary Middle School, didn’t know who rapper DMX was.
But now she’s a huge fan, after the rapper and actor bought her and her older sister, 20-year-old Sierra, new shoes while they were back-to-school shopping with their mother on Saturday at the Maine Mall.
“Oh, she loves DMX now. She told me she downloaded everything he’d ever done,” said Grace’s mother, Nikki Cutchens. “She’s got her DMX shoes now.”
