AZ Judge Issues Bench Warrant For DMX

Here we go again.

DMX’s legal woes continue as a bench warrant was issued for the rapper after he failed to show up for a pre-trial hearing in Arizona.

According to the Associated Press, the bond for the rapper has now been raised to $25,000.

X is facing a number of charges in the state. Among them, are drug possession, animal cruelty, and a strange case in which the former Ruff Ryder gave a false name to avoid paying a hospital bill.

In May of this year, he was first arrested for speeding in Arizona. Then later, he was picked up on animal cruelty charges.

He was then busted in Florida twice, once on driving charges, and a second time for attempting to purchase cocaine from an undercover policeman.—LaTisha Robbins

  • Tony Grand$

    Okay, all bullshit aside. I, Tony Grand$, being of sound mind and body, officially resign from being a loyal fan of Earl Simmons. I’m signing my walking papers @ this very moment. Teary-eyed, but determined none the less. I cannot do it any longer. I’ve done far too much defending, explaining, and believing in the toppled icon. The ryde was indeed a ruff one, vroom vroom and arf arf, but with my remaining burst of energy I must shout @ the top of my lungs the two words my father told me I could never utter.
    **looks up at the heavens** “I QUIT!!” Nope, just can’t do it anymore. We saw him slip, watched his fall, and now the sad reality is that DMX can’t get up. Never again will I stop, and drop. I refuse to shut ‘em down and open up shop. I am done. Finished. Finito. I give up, Dark man (tap tap tap tap tap…..where the fuck is the referee?). And don’t worry about the mediocre comeback album you are most certainly planning, I aint planning on buying it anyway. Your feeble attempts @ attaining yesteryears legendary status have become nothing more than urban legend whispered in abandoned subway tunnels. In the words of that remarkable linguist, Popeye the Sailor Man (not to be confused with Snoopaman, Spiderman, JiggaMan, or ScatMan Crothers), “I’ve had all I could stands, and I can’t stands no more!” Gottdamnit, where’s my spinach? I’m outta this bitch, who’s rollin with a nigga?

    **”what did DMX say to the C.O. while serving a 3-5 year sentence off of a plea bargain?”**What?**”Maybe theyll recognize MLK Day by the time I’m leavin ‘Arizona”.
