According to TMZ DMX is putting together a reunion that could be of epic proportions…or something like that. X is recruiting his old Ruff Ryder crew members to be a part of a new tour. All members of the once dominant Hip Hop crew will be on the tour according to X, even artists Drag-On and Murda Mook(Who I never knew was signed to RR) will come along for the ride.
It’s official … DMX and his legendary rap crew Ruff Ryders are getting back together — in fact, X tells TMZ, a blowout reunion tour is already in the works.
Ruff Ryders first lady Eve told us this weekend to expect a massive comeback — but X says the RR reunion is already underway … with CEO Waah Dean currently booking several venues across the country.
The tour is supposed to kick off in a few months — and X tells us, the entire crew’s already on board, including Swizz Beats, Drag-On, and Murda-Mook.
According to DMX, Eve and The L.O.X. haven’t signed on yet — but that’s just because he hasn’t gotten in touch with them yet. X insists, that will change very soon.
X tells us, “We are all family and we’re going to come back stronger than when we left … It’s going to take the nation by storm.”
Irv Gotti sat down with Sway over at MTV for a long discussion about his history in Hip Hop over the years. In this segment I.G. talks about the relationship or lack there of between Jay-Z and DMX. We all know abou this historic freestyle battle that the two had back in the day in a Bronx pool hall as well asthis one that appeared in the movie Backstage, but none of us could have possibly known that Jay and DMX were taking shots at each other on this song called ‘Time To Build‘ that also featured Mic Geronimo and Ja Rule.
Through a statement released by his publicist, Earl let it be known that nothing is going to stop him from doing hoodrat stuff in Arizona. As crazy as you may think it sounds…Earl says GOD is the reason that he is in Arizona and won’t leave…OH…Okay then…
“This situation is being blown way out of proportion. DMX was in jail for approximately 1 hour. Also the report given by Sgt. Rudy Lujan of AHP, was exaggerated according to the people present. DMX does admit to driving at 85mph but not nearly at the speed that was suggested in the report. In response to the constant harassment by Arizona law enforcement, DMX says this, “God brought me to Phoenix and I’m not going to let no man run me and my family from our home!” Despite being under a microscope, DMX is doing everything he can to put his past criminal charges behind him and focus on music. – Domenick Nati”
Welp…freedom was a good thing while it lasted for Earl Simmons. The Darkman was arrested again last night in Arizona. According to TMZ, X was picked up for driving 102 mph in a 65mph zone..and of course, he doesn’t have a drivers license…it’s suspended…I mean would you expect anything else?
He was booked for speeding, reckless driving, and the suspended license, and released on bond….SMMFH!!!!
Okay I lied a few days ago…I said I wasn’t posting any more versions of ‘Otis’…Welp that was before Earl and Trevor decided to jump on it. DMX and Busta Rhymes snatch Jay and Ye’s beat and stomp a mud hole into it.
DMX’s estranged wife Tashera recently called into an Arizona radio station to discuss The Dark Man’s most recent run in with law enforcement authorities.
Tashera explained that she and X are still legally married, and also talked about why she stayed with him through all of their trials and tribulations. She said “We met when we were 11 so it’s like we were more than husband and wife. That was my dawg.”
The station also asked her what she thought about the new charges that X was facing.
“I’m telling you the real now, I told Earl, ‘You need to get out of Arizona. They do not like you there.’ The thing is his probation was up in three weeks, and they said he could not leave until it was up. They let him do shows but he couldn’t actually move out of Arizona until his probation was up…but he only had three weeks left. They set him up. You see that he was in a rehab [center] that they put him in because he was dropping dirty and they gave him permission to go and do a show. How are you giving someone that’s supposed to be in a rehab permission to do a show? That’s like a set up. And X, I can’t believe that he even took a drink knowing the situation.”
Hmmmm…Pretty interesting stuff because I remember when X had his show on B.E.T he said that he would never go back to Arizona because that was where the devil lives.
Damn Earl….enough is enough….either get your act together or just go back to living on the street and smoking crack for the next 15 years…
Court officials in Arizona say the rapper known as DMX has had his probation revoked and is heading to prison for one year.
The Maricopa County Superior Court issued the ruling Thursday against the rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons.
Simmons was arrested last month for violating probation. He told KSAZ-TV in Phoenix he was kicked out of a drug treatment program because he had a drink at a Scottsdale club during a performance.
Court documents allege Simmons failed to submit to drug testing and drove on a suspended license.
Simmons was placed on probation last year after convictions for attempted aggravated assault for throwing a food tray at a jail guard, and theft for trying to using a fake name to avoid paying a $7,500 hospital bill.
You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Earl is up to something, and it seems like he is going straight for Jay-Z’s jugular. At a recent show in Arizona, X expressed his displeasure with the current state of the industry and said F*CK JAY-Z. Seems like a way to promote his upcoming projects, but aye I will let you be the judge.
