  • Jeopardy

    Sad to say it, but if X doesn’t stop, he’s going to be the next to go. That might do wonders for his sales, but it would suck for his kids.

  • sean_izzle

    whatever i really hope hes alright cuase he would be a big loss for Hip Hop, hes still one of the best of em all

  • BTLG NYC

    Considering that Sony closed it’s doors in August, I’m pretty sure that’s not true.

    • mat212

      I was JUST about to say that. It closed June 30, 2007. The building is coming down to make room for condos. If you walk by it you will notice that there is no sign, chain on the doors, etc. I live right here in Hell’s Kitchen. Four blocks down from (the former) Sony Music Studios.

  • DirtDogggy

    “showing the rapper looking nervous and acting erratically”

    X is always twitching since day one, even in the movies he played in, that’s nothing new.

    Riddle me this. How many classic songs and albums were made by fucked the fucked up artists ? probably 90% of them, from pop to rock to rap to fucking book writers to movie directors, so again WhoGAFF.

    You think, big, pac or anyone else hasn’t passed out in the studio ?

    I would hate to see X die on some OD shit, but to be honest the all time greats have made mad classics being fucked up in every jendra of music.

  • B

    What was Nas las album called?

  • jojochicago

    Crack kills and yes that kind!

  • A

    GOD BLESS X! WE ALL GOT OUR VICES SO WHO ARE WE TO JUDGE YOU. I PRAY THAT YOU BREAK OUTTA THAT SHIT THOUGH. YOU’RE ONE OF THE REALEST SOLDIERS IN THE GAME.

  • BTLG

    Uhm…..

    Considering that Sony Studios closed it’s doors in August, this may well not be true.

  • Squibz

    dis nig gets his bread, then blaze it to the head.

    and now his ass broke, cuz of all the crack he smoke.

    thats why he make songs about jesus,cuz he fear his inner demons.

    Man if he get knocked for crack it’ll be like a scene from oz

    he shoulda stayed inside the studio, f*ckin wit Nas

    But now he riden around, impersonatin cops

    Becuase he dont wanna get caught wit a bang fulla rocks

    I used to feel his shit and like everything that he said

  • Fireforreal

    WHY WHY WHY , is it so hard for rappers to just fuckin rap.Make albums promote them maybe do a flick here and there why all the other shit ? This is why so many rappers become broke because there fuckin sround doing other shit instead of focusing on gettin that paper.

  • http://www.hightimes.com nicolantern@aol.com

    this is so sad…. these celeberties are so damn stupid and ungrateful… we go out and support these artists and they can’t even stay away from the craCK ROCK.or they can’t get a damn driver when they are twisted.it makes no sense. the whole world needs to stop feeding into the lives of these losers. im not supporting anymore of these wack personalities. brittney lindsey paris all of em. remy ma shootin people rappers trying to buy guns. just stupid. give me some of that money i will show u WHAT TO DO. something constructive like pay my damn BILLS. all the wasted tIME and MoNEY. people struggle everyday just to make a dime and these people waste waste waste. its a shame. drug addicts and narcassistic fools. they don’t want there pictures taken but they hang out with the papparazzi. yeah right. fake rappers shooting people or themselves. so lame. peace

  • ragrago

    I Love DMX to see him like dis is painful for dose who have truly connected wid him thru his words music and actions…X is a spiritual artist who like alot of us is struggling wid da world within and without…

    I do not know wot demons hes dealing wid but da people around him tellin him to make music record stay in da limelight think they r helpin him but in truth dey r killin him…

    X needs to take time out if he has a drug problem get on a good rehab programme dis brotha like alot of us black men has to much talent to be wasted like dis, and da worst thing in da world is wasted talent…

    HE NEEDS TO recouperate he seems burnt out I sincerely hope he can as we have lost to many talents in da past few years and really hip hop has represented wot is happenin to black youth on da streets or on a wider scale…X I pray for da best..GODS WATCHIN OVER U

  • phillip

    DMX smokes too much crack. That man is a crack head and whats worst is that stupid ass has asthma. Stop smoking you idiot, crack is wack nigga!!! You’s a pansy nigga!!!

  • niggafrommemphis

    I don’t kick niggas while they’re down.D needs to chill on some other shit than rappin.If rappin is in this mans’ blood,then cool.But if he think that he has somethin to prove,the only ones that are gonna be impressed are gonna be the diehard dmx niggas and that’s cool.D,I could care less really what you do,but look at your past accomplishments and step to the “pulpit” for real.You are gonna wind up locked up on some “hip hop police” ass shit,we all know what a gotdamn muthafuckin fool you can be!

    The video the article is referring to wasn’t X working on his album..it was him working on the song “Bad Boys” for DJGQs upcoming album..

    GQ released a statement addressing the rumors -

    IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    A recent video posted on Youtube shows a hype and energetic DMX
    recording in Miami with DJ GQ for an upcoming album. Rumors then
    started to spread about DMX collapsing at the Sony Recording Studios.
    DJ GQ has released this statement concerning the video in question.

    “It has come to my attention that a video of myself and DMX recording
    in a studio has fueled rumors that he is taking drugs and that he
    collapsed at Sony studios.

    It was my people that posted the DMX video on YouTube. Let me set
    the record straight. This video was shot down here in South Florida
    months ago. DMX had come straight from the airport to the studio,
    after flying in from Arizona! We downed a bottle and a half of
    Hennessy before he got on the mic. Is DMX hyper? Yes. Is DMX wild?
    Yes. Was DMX under the influence of anything else at the time of this
    recording or at any other time in my presence? Absolutely not!

    The fact of the matter is that DMX is an energetic and passionate
    artist. He is a hip-hop legend and my friend. It was an honor
    recording “Bad Boys” with him and I will stand by DMX no matter what
    stories anyone invents.

    Long live the Dog!!!” -DJ GQ (QMusic Group)

    Being a legend is someone whos remembered for what they did, how you gonna call B a legend when the downfall of his career has to do with his love for crack? “yea man top ten rappers of all time, legends, we got biggie, pac, nas, jay,etc…oh yea and whos that other guy? the one the was always late for shows, passin out all ova the place, you know the mutha fucker smoking crack?”
    he seems like a smart dude i’ll give him that, but until he str8ens tha fuck up, hes goin down in my books as a dumb mutha fucka who waste his time and money on crack, does he have kids? i certainly hope not

    Quit Slippin Crack Man X and Do it like non otha

  • stoneyisland

    X should try taking Crack A.M instead of Crack P.M if he’s gonna be in the studio:) this dude is baked, fried and needs an intervention or prison to get his pathetic life back together. I mean come on is he even relevent in hip-hop any more? his albums have gotten progressively worse and his sales go down on each of his last 4 or 5 albums. X, hang it up, join rehab and then become a store front preacher.

    DMX IS LEGEND HIS NEW ALBUM IS HOT AND JARUL DIS X FUCK JA X IS ONLY ARTIS TO PUT 2 ALBUM IN ONE YEAR AND nr 1 on bill HE IS GONNA DO IT AGAIN THIS YEAR JARUL DO LIKE X THAN TALK BICH RUFF RYDERS FOR LIFE

  • Hollywood

    X is the definition of a hip-hop legend. You can’t sum his contribution up with “he sold a lot of albums.” He has had a real career being an artist and a personality. He has always had a story to tell and his life is a drama itself. X at least deserves the respect of not making ignorant accusations and assumptions about his personal life. He is a good actor and this song is fire.

    Respect.
