DMX Arrested Over Unpaid Child Support
Even when he is chilling, trouble seems to find DMX. The Yonkers rapper was arrested in New York City, last night (June 26) over unpaid child support. According to TMZ, there was a warrant out for his arrest. Cops bagged Earl while he was en route to a performance at the Masters of Ceremony, an old school hip-hop show that takes place at the Radio City Music Hall. He was slated to perform along with Shabba Ranks, The LOX, Rakim, Ma$e, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Brand Nubian and Das EFX. The arrest caused X to miss his set, according to the report.
The arrests continue to pile up for the troubled rapper. And there is still that situation in Newark that hangs over the MC's head. In April, he was accused of robbing a man at a New Jersey gas station. The alleged victim claims he was relieved of $3,200 by the rapper who snatched money out of his hand before driving off in a convoy of four black Cadillac Escalades. Both DMX and his lawyer deny the allegations with Earl calling it the work of Beelzebub.
“If things like that don’t happen, then I’m not doing what I’m supposed to be doing,” the Ruff Ryder told TMZ. ”The harder the devil works at trying to destroy me, is because I’m special to God. Not that I look forward to these problems, but I face them, knowing that the Word says, ‘No weapon formed against me shall prosper.’”
