During the conversation, Bronson revealed that his wife was in labour for 18 hours.

He told Rogan that he and his wife had different instruments like Peruvian flute music playing, to help assist her labour. However, she did respond differently when Bronson starting playing DMX instead. 

“I played DMX. ‘stop, drop,’” Bronson explained to Rogan. “That motherf**ker jumped out of her! I swear on everything, it’s on camera."

"It’s on film, as soon as the Peruvian flute music stopped, DMX came on, he heard the [barking] and he jumped out.”

Bronson said that he wished he could have told DMX that story, as it means so much to his family.
