DMX Pulls Out of USO Tour

dmx5.jpgThe USO (United Service Organization) announced yesterday that at the last minute DMX pulled out of a scheduled tour of Iraq and Kuwait. According to the USO, the rapper was scheduled to depart for Kuwait on August 22, however, he delayed the departure until the August 23. When the date arrived, DMX failed to arrive on time for his flight. John Hanson, senior vice president for marketing and communications, noted that the organization went to extraordinary lengths to put the trip together in a fraction of the time usually allotted for such a tour. “Typically, it takes up to 45 days to arrange transportation, housing, production assistance and country clearances for entertainment tours,” Hanson said in a statement. “This tour was put together in just under two weeks, because we know how much service men and women appreciate his performances. Mr. Simmons let a lot of people down.” According to the USO, the rapper offered no explanation as to why he declined to fulfill his commitment.

    Personally, he can pull out it if he chooses. A lot of you all think that the man has to bow down and kiss butt but he does not. I’m pretty sure that most of y’all have a habit. No one in this forum can criticize the next man. Who in this forum is a saint? Ain’t no one on this earth a saint, period. I would have pulled out too, if he goes over there he is basically saying that he supports what is going over on there. Those soldiers are dying for no reason, oh for oil and gas, and profits being made from the war.

  • House

    Oh, I agree with “Pop A Poppa.” Violence begets violence.

  • House

    The comments being made on this forum really got me pist. This man can do what he wants. If you saying that you ain’t a fan anymore you was not a fan in the first place. F*** y’all.

  • http://xxlmagazine RAFAEL

    i’ve got something to say, i think rapper should only release 2 albums max, cause nigga youz a millionaire what kind of hood shit are you talking about, lets be real if you believe half of what these fuckers are saying you might be on crack too, rappers just release shit sometimes just to make a little change, and hip hop fans suffer by buying their garbage, from now on after your first album goes gold or platinum, all albums after that should have a label that says “all raps are made up from this point on”, DMX quit frontin you ain’t hard, maybe you wuz at some point in time, but nigga you rich now, what are you crying about??? and quit fucking yelling when you talk that shit is annoying!!! peace

    POP A POPPA what you talkin about you scared pussy, all those homeys over there fightin for our freedom and he gets theyre hopes up and pulls out…..thats fucked up…get your head right trick

  • http://www.xxlmag.com L.A.’s Finest

    Hey Fuck You House, are you really that stupid. Soldiers are supposed to fight, they can’t decide for themselves when and where they want to. This was supposed to be for the troops!!!!! Not the war, it’s not about supporting the war, it’s about letting the PEOPLE (a.k.a. human beings) over there fighting know that even though the country is in disagreement about the war, we still got love for them. DMX is a coward for not showing up, if he was in their shoes he would understand how dissapointing this turned out to be.

  • JD

    Speaking as a DMX fan and a military member out here in this hot ass dessert in support of our countries war on terrorism I can tell you that “X” not showing did nothing but lower the morale of thousands of men and woman. We were shocked to find out that he was even scheduled by the military because the military top brass is so conservative in fact when we were informed that the show was cancelled many people assumed that the military cancelled it. I am stationed approximately 2 hours away from the area where the concert was to take place, at first I thought about making that drive but I just knew this fucka wasn’t going to show. A few of my partna’s went and were of course upset. Dude don’t show up for big time TV events I don’t know what made these cats believe he’d make it out here in this 130 + degree weather. Its like Maya Angelou says ” Believe someone when they tell you who they are.”

  • A Soldier

    Mann, Fuck DMX. We aint ask him to come over here and entertain us. Him and his people set that shit up. Ofcourse we were happy. Soldiers and Civilians support theses artist, If it wasnt for us liking them, they would be nobody. Us Soldiers over here fighting so people dont have to worry about somebody fuckin with the U.S. and establishing something over here and that Fuckin Crackhead cant hop his ass on a plane and a spit a couple of bars, a couple of verses a couple of songs for people who actually put there life on the line Ruff Ryder my ass. Ryde or Die right. Well I guess he’s dead. Mann Fuck that Bitch. Probably scared, His Dum ass would of been in the safe parts anyway. I Pray If I ever get in the industry whether its performing, producing, managing or advertising, Imma finish off his Career.

    If they real brothers they would not have they ass over there in the first place. Maybe the reason the USO don’t schedule a lot of Black artist is because that shit ain’t for Blacks! You ever think of that Einstein??? Just because some delusional brothers sold out to go and fight the u.s. government’s fabricated war doesn’t mean that true Black artist should feel obligated to go over and entertain them. I am sure Garth Brooks or Faith Hill will do the job. Crack head or not, he has gained some respect from me due to his recent actions. Preferably, I think he should have never said that he would go over there to start with but regardless I glad he came to his senses before it was too late.

    Don’t be mad because the u.s. government bamboozled you into that soldier story cow dung. I know you don’t think you over there fighting to keep us safe. That’s some shit the military pumping in your head to keep yall on the straight and narrow. Ain’t nobody fucking with the u.s. except the u.s. 9-11, look into the research and you tell me why the hell yall over there in Iran?

    No young buck over here Sun and I know you know better than to think america is not already in IRAN… I know about that military game, I do my research. No dumb shit here Sun, the truth hurts but you will get through it. Volunteer service; you’re right on that note but you were and sounds like you still are BAMBOZELED because what that recruiter told you to VOLUNTEER never materialized did. Let me guess, he promised you just short of a rainbow with a pot of gold at the end… Nah, I going to quit messing with your head Sun because I know it is taking everything you got to continue believing the lies to keep your moral up. But on a more significant note; the same way you volunteer to go fight that war DMX un-volunteered not to do a show over there.

    sum of u cats need 2 get your facts straight.the war is n IRAQ not Iran!!! im behind our troops 1000%. X agreed on making the trip so he shouldve went.ive been n The NFL for 9yrs.i had the chance 2 go over 2 Iraq last yr.we were gonna meet the troops & sign autographs for them.the only reason i didnt make the trip is bcuz of my family.i was in Hawaii for a week doing charity work during Pro Bowl week.my fam didnt make it 2 Hawaii with me.my wife is a teacher & the kids wouldve missed a week of school.missing a week of school is a no no in my house.if i wouldve went 2 Iraq i wouldve been away from my wife & kids for another 15 days.if i ever have the chance 2 make that trip again,im going.our troops need 2 see entertainers over there.man that shit helps them make it through.yes our troops are fighting for our freedom.i dont agree with this war & we all know why Bush sent our troops over there in the 1st place.its all about the oil for him & his dad but our troops are fighting the bad guys now.thats another story…X u need 2 let our troops know y u didnt make it.i know for a fact X wouldve been n a SAFE PLACE over there.so thats no excuse!!! i hope it wasnt the crack.i dont wanna bag on him about that.all 4 of my mom sibs are crack heads.i see the pain it brings on a family.if the crack is the case X,then go get help & it starts with X.he was buggin on the BET show.his homies are a bunch of YES MEN.ive been with my wife since the 10th grade(1990).X wife need 2 put more back on him.all men need a strong woman behind him!!! i have never done drugs nor drink in my life.but i have family members that have & i learned at an early age that i wasnt going that route.so X,u owe our troops a HUGE show in the future.support our troops America!!! i dont give a fuck about Bush but i care about our troops.if u wanna see what these kids are going through over there,then go 2 youtube & type in Iraq.you can also go 2 ogrish.com…its really fucked up what our troops are going through.God Bless our troops & the whole World.

    THAT IS PATHETIC, LEAVES THOUSANDS OF SOLDIERS HANGING WHO PERSONALLY “WERE” FANS THAT SUPPORTED HIM IN HIS STRUGGLE. THEY SUPPORT WITH THEIR LIVES, AND IF THEY ARENT IN DIRECT FIRE THEY STILL SACRIFICED THERE LIFE IN THE RESPECT OF TIME AND FREEDOM. HE COULD OF HAD THE CURTIOUSY OF DOING THAT SHITTY LITTLE 30 MIN SHOW BUT LIKE THE BITCH HE OBVIOUSLY IS HE DIDN’T SHOW, AND SINCE 90% SAID ITS DUE TO BEING A CRACKHEAD, THEN ITS PROBABLY TRUE. ALL I GOT TO SAY IS DONT SUPPORT THIS WANKSTA LOSER BITCH BECAUSE HE DOESN’T SUPPORT ANYONE ELSE BUT HIS OWN ASS. I HOPE HE GOES BROKE AND MOVES BACK TO THE HOOD WHERE HE BELONGS BECAUSE HES A SELFISH MOTHER FUCKER… -=SUPPORT THE TROOPS=- THEY ARE THERE FOR A JUST CAUSE AND ANYONE TOO FUCKING IGNORANT TO SEE WHY AND PUTTING THEM DOWN NEEDS TO GO FUCK THEMSELVES
