DMX took time out of his busy schedule to spread some holiday merriment and sing “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer” while at New York’s Power 105.1. The rapper banged out a beat to go with his unique rendition, which he had memorized.
If this is what his hypothetical Christmas album sounds like, we NEED to hear it.
Watch it here
The first album Wiz Khalifa ever bought with his own money was DMX’s single “Get At Me Dog,” which is pretty trippy considering the Pittsburgh rapper has since toured with X for Rock the Bells and his fiance Amber Rose has a soft spot for the guy.
Wiz was growing up in Pittsburgh and had to save up for the album, which included the clean, regular and instrumental versions as well as “Stop Being Greedy” on the B-side.
“I was doing chores at the time,” Wiz told ANDPOP. “I was in second or third grade probably and had $10. There was this place called Edgewood Towne Centre right up the street from where I lived on the East side of town so I had to walk all the way up the street, all the way up the hill. I got the the Towne Centre, looked at everything and for some reason DMX stood out so I was like ‘I’ll get that one,’ and I loved it.”
Wiz also opened up about getting crazy sh*t stuck up his nose and first learning about doggy-style as a “crazy little man” for an episode of “Way Back When.” Naturally, this resulted in obligatory talk about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, because (duh) Wiz is OBSESSED with the art of ninjutsu.
Remember when Aziz Ansari told us about the first time 50 Cent learned what a grapefruit is? He felt like he was witnessing an important lesson in the rapper’s life — a lesson most people learn at age five.
I feel the same way with this clip of rapper DMX learning to use Google for the FIRST TIME. Apparently, he’s been avoiding computers and has never even felt inclined to Google himself. He’s basically going on with life as though he lives in the early 90s, which is incredibly surprising for someone in his industry.
Luckily, New York radio station Power 105.1 was there to help DMX search his name for the first time and his utterly confused reaction is priceless. I’m pretty sure this little lesson will go down in Internet history. And we can all say we witnessed a very important day in DMX’s life.
The top rated comment on YouTube right now? “Cocaine 1 – DMX 0.”

OCD or just a good deed?
According to TMZ, rapper DMX decided to do a good deed and help vacuum a night club in South Carolina called Club Universal this past weekend. Guess he just had a revelation to clean up his act…literaly!
This isn’t the first instance either. DMX was caught in the act last Tuesday, taking a mop from a male fan and helping him clean the waffle house where the guy worked. They were seen cleaning until 4 a.m. Now that’s committment.
The rapper, who recently did a stint in jail, said “I was in a good mood and felt that I would do that for him, since it was 4 a.m. and [the employee] had been working all night. The minute you get too big to mop a floor or wipe a counter, that’s the exact minute you have life f—ed up.”
When asked why he vacuumed the floor of the nightclub a few days later, the rapper merely told TMZ, “Broom, vacuum, mop, whatever … it’s a rewarding experience.” Of course, DMX, Of course.
Good for him! See the man-with-the-invisible-halo in action for yourself below.
TMZ reports Arizona cops pulled over DMX last night. And to make matters worse, he was driving with a suspended license.
He was booked for speeding, reckless driving, and the suspended license. He has posted bond and has been released.
However, that’s only part of the problem. TMZ reports DMX made the following errors while serving time in the Yuma, AZ jail:
- Drug possession
- Failing or refusing a drug test
- Smoking when he was not supposed to
- Disorderly conduct
DMX was supposed to be released tomorrow after serving seven months for a probation violation. However he will remain in jail for at least another week.
So if he was caught smuggling drugs into jail, does that definitely mean he shoved the drugs up his ass? Is that how it works?
MyFoxPhoenix.com reports that DMX was arrested at 6:00pm last night for a parole violation. The violation was not checking in with his parole officer.
DMX has a probation revocation hearing set for November 24.
DMX (whose real name is Earl Simmons) was placed in jail March 9th after admitting to his probation officer that he used cocaine after being released from jail for his last offense, according to E! News. He spent 90 days behind bars after copping to drug, theft and animal-cruelty charges. However the rapper could get out of jail early if he is accepted into a drug rehab facility.
DMX (aka Earl Simmons) was arrested earlier today in Arizona (yes this is hardly news as it seems DMX gets arrested daily). TMZ reports that the rapper violated the terms of his probation by using illegal drugs from the past nine months.
His lawyer Gary Jenkins says “He’s been battling addiction for some time and he’s in need of treatment.” Additionally his lawyer commented that DMX needs serious help, potentially from somebody like celebrity therapist Dr. Drew Pinsky.
Rapper DMX, real name Earl Simmons, has agreed to perform at a “gospel rap extravaganza” at his church this weekend, according to TMZ.
The rapper is set to perform for a fundraiser at the Morning Star Sanctified Church this Saturday (March 6). To boot, DMX is doing the show for free.
According to TMZ, DMX ducked out of a Dec. 12 mixed artial arts against actor Eric Martinez, and reportedly be replaced by Coolio.
The rapper’s manager reportedly insisted on a gauranteed victory over his opponent as a contract condition. Thunder Promotions, the fight’s organizer, were not on board for a fixed fight.
The group plans on filing a breach of contract lawsuit against DMX, and say that Coolio will “Take [the fight] seriously.”
DMX turned a charity concert into a riot this weekend when he arrived late for his scheduled performance and then proceeded to fight the security guards. After showing up nearly 90 minutes late for his set, DMX got into a shoving match in front of the stage with the security guards. Fans quickly joined the hubbub, pushing and chanting “DMX! DMX!”
Once he made it on stage, the sound system was turned off to keep him from performing.
The event promoters, American Charities, told fans DMX was not coming when he hadn’t arrived by 9:30 p.m., the time he was supposed to take the stage. Instead, DMX traipsed in at 11:00 expecting to perform.
Rapper DMX is currently in jail until he goes before a judge today (December 10). According to MTV News, a $5000 reward was offered for the rapper’s capture.
DMX was arrested on a warrant after he failed to appear in court last Friday.
Attorney Bradford Cohen explained to MTV News what happened, “A call went out earlier this morning in regards to his location, and the regular police went out to that location, which was a recovery clinic, but because of health care laws, the clinic wouldn’t confirm whether he was there.”
DMX was then apprehended by the FBI at a Palm Island mansion according to MTV News.
The American rapper was due in court last week for a status hearing on charges of drug possession, identity theft and animal cruelty.
DMX, a.k.a. Earl Simmons, was hospitalized on Tuesday and issued with an arrest warrant.
The rapping Ruff Ryder missed a court date in Phoenix, AZ because of his hospitalization. However, the judge said the documentation of his hospitalization was insufficient and issued the arrest warrant.
It is unclear why DMX was hospitalized. DMX was arrested twice in June for driving without a valid driver’s license and attempting to buy cocaine and marijuana from undercover police.
“We are in court again next week on other matters, and my hope is we can get the warrant resolved by then and get back on track. We have some things in the works to get the warrant taken care of. My hope is that we can resolve it without an arrest,” Charles Kozelka, a public defender representing DMX told MTV News.
DMX must really love spending time behind bars.
The troubled rapper was arrested (yes again) in a Phoenix mall Saturday afternoon on suspicion of felony identity theft, reports E! News.
According to the entertainment website, DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, reportedly used a fake name and Social Security number to avoid paying a $7,500 medical bill.
Police say DMX used the alias “Troy Jones” when he checked in to the Mayo Clinic last spring for pneumonia.
This is the rapper’s fifth arrest in the past three months. No bond has been set for the artist but officials say he will likely remain isolated in jail for safety purposes.
It seems that DMX just can’t hide from trouble or the law.
According to E! News, the rapper was arrested Friday for allegedly trying to buy drugs from an undercover cop in Miami. According to the police report, DMX asked the officer for $30 worth of cocaine and $15 of marijuana.
After the troubled star handed the officer $45, he was arrested.
Just this past Monday, Miami police caught DMX driving with a suspended license but he was released shortly after posting $500 bail. However, DMX’s list of criminal offences continues.
The star is currently facing animal-cruelty charges in Arizona, after SWAT teams founds a number of pit bull puppies that required immediate veterinary care for malnutrition and dehydration.
After arriving one hour late for an arraignment on four felony drug charges and seven misdemeanor animal-cruelty charges, DMX entered a plea of not guilty.
DMX (also known as Earl Simmons) arrived to the Maricopa County Superior Court, in Phoenix, Thursday dressed in a loose white T-shirt and jeans.
The Republic reported that DMX had no comment for the press. The rapper did however say he was dealing with the allegations through “prayer” and described his present situation as “not very pleasant.”
DMX is due back in court July 2 on the drug and animal-cruelty charges.
Rapper DMX, born Earl Simmons, was arrested Friday on seven misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty and four felony drug possession charges, according to the Maricopa County sheriff’s office.
Back in late August, a dozen malnourished pit bulls and a large weapons cache were found at DMX’s home in Cave Creek, Arizona. On May 9, after obtaining a search warrant, detectives seized more drugs and weapons from the star’s home who, according to police, barricaded himself inside his bedroom when authorities arrived to arrest the artist.
DMX has already been arrested once this week. On Tuesday, DMX was caught speeding well over the posted 65 mph speed limit, driving about 114 mph on a suburban freeway.
A 29-year-old woman received nine staples to close a head wound, after she was struck with a steel chair on Saturday at the Nassau County Veterans Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y, during a DMX concert.
The Back To School Jam ’06 started out horribly. After the G-Unit crew, which includes rappers 50 Cent and Lloyd Banks performed, DMX, 35, whose real name is Earl Simmons, began his set only to have his microphone cut off on him.
“F*** outta here with that, turn my s*** on,” demanded DMX, reports AllHipHop.com.
After 15 minutes of performing, the night started to take a turn for the worse when DMX got frustrated that his sound was cut off again during his part in the hit song, “Touch It,” and started a fight with the sound man.
A witness reported to AllHipHop.com that DMX “jumped in his booth and proceeded to swing at him several times. I could hear the those punches connecting.”
The fight resulted in DMX being escorted off stage. That didn’t sit well with the rowdy fans. Fans began to show their anger by throwing food and water at the remaining entourage on stage. DMX’s entourage began to fight back by throwing bottles of water into the crowd.
At one point, a chair was being thrown around back and forth injuring a female fan. She left the venue and headed to Nassau University Medical Center with a cut on her head that took nine stitches to close.
“Chairs were thrown by the audience to the stage and…at one point a member of DMX’s entourage picked up one of these steel folding chairs and threw it back into the crowd, striking the victim in the head,” said Nassau Police Detective Sergeant James Watson, reports E! Online.
As you might have already guessed, the concert was called off at that point.
The incident is currently being investigated as an assault. There are no charges as of yet. Police are still looking for the person responsible for throwing the chair. DMX and his camp have made no comment.
Earl Simmons, AKA DMX, has gone absent without leave.
The rapper was originally scheduled to perform for American troops in Iraq and Kuwait. He was scheduled to leave on Tuesday, but changed his flight plans to Wednesday.
However, when flight time came, Simmons was no where to be found, reports a press release from the USO.
“We are extremely disappointed that DMX decided not to complete the tour he asked us to arrange for him. When we announced this tour, troops were extremely excited about the possibility of seeing a performer they admired. We understand their disappointment,” said John Hanson, USO senior vice president for marketing and communications.
The USO adds that it rushed to put together the arrangements for DMX to travel, and got everything achieved in a timeframe of less than two weeks. Typically it takes up to 45 days to get all of the necessary approvals.
The USO lines up entertainment based on the musical tastes of the troops. Until now, it hasn’t had a problem with an entertainer honouring their commitment.
“We will continue to provide quality entertainment to the people who defend us daily around the world in some remote and often dangerous places. Fortunately, most performers honor their obligation to perform once they make the commitment,” Hanson said.
