|DMX is sweating. The veteran rapper back in county lockup for some form of stupidity.|
Earl Simmons is still a dog on the loose and the pound about to neuter him.
According to Wikipedia, Simmons is a product of his environment.
I miss them days when he was the biggest thing that came off Def Jam Records.
DMX as he's professionally known was a member of the Ruff Ryders. He, Eve, Swizz Beatz, Jadakiss and his group The Lox were the biggest acts during the late 1990s until 2005.
X and his crew were selling hits. But their egos, the law and canceling tours have damaged their reputations. Now people aren't rocking Ruff Ryders.
The mixtape circuit is the only thing that keeps Jadakiss relevant. The others decided to make families and semi-retire from the music. Eve is focused on acting and is married to billionaire mogul Max Cooper. Swizz Beatz divorced his former wife and went on to marry pop singer Alicia Keys.
X on the other hand, is trying to find Black Jesus.
X is still having trouble with the law and is on the verge of being put in the pound for LIFE.
Last time I've talked about X, he was getting in trouble for armed robbery of a fan. Now I hear that he's back in county lockup for missing child support for the seven children (or twelve). I lost count.
Since he's no longer rocking with Def Jam, he's having trouble trying to push out albums.
So I guess with the money making in the dirt, X has blown money fast. He recently filed for bankruptcy after complaining about his child support.
The courts ain't buying that excuse. The law put the muzzle on X after he came to town. He was suppose to perform at Radio City. Alas, his habits of canceling shows continues.
He said those included $400,000 worth of unpaid child support, a warrant issued by the city of White Plains for bail jumping and a robbery complaint out of Newark, New Jersey. No charges have been filed in the Newark case.
A management company that has represented DMX did not immediately return an email seeking comment from The Associated Press.
