Screen Shot 2015-02-10 at 9.08.36 AM

If you peep his video which I posted below, he will remind you sort of the German Islamic version of DMX. They really don’t know if this guy is dead or alive so this might be just more propaganda connecting hip hop to terrorism which has been going on the last few years and ignored by the hip hop press pretty much.

MAINZ, Germany — A former German rapper known as “Deso Dogg” has been declared an international terrorist over alleged ties to ISIS and added to the U.S. terror blacklist.

According to the State Department, 39-year-old Denis Cuspert — who now goes by the name Abu Talha al-Almani — joined the group now known as ISIS in 2012, has pledged allegiance to its leader and appeared in numerous videos on behalf of the terror organization. In the most recent video, which was released in November, Cuspert “appears holding a severed head he claims belongs to a man executed for opposing” ISIS, the State Department said in a statement.

[video] DMX Plays B-Ball with Disabled Veterans

I am liking the route that DMX is taking with him re-shaping his image and career after having multiple arrests and serving time short stints in jail over the last few years. The stuff he is doing seems to be from the heart and not for photo-ops. Kinda the opposite of T.I’s recent media blitz where he seems to be campaigning for the public’s good graces instead of showing that he has changed. Time for Tip to take a page out of what DMX is doing and stop running on these talk shows and just show he has leaned lessons.

DMX arrested again in Arizona: TMZ

I was rooting for X heavy, but it seems that his addiction is stronger than he is. I thought he was leaving Arizona alone where they obviously have a vendetta against him. More info from TMZ below:

via TMZ

DMX was arrested earlier today in Arizona — and now his lawyer is reaching out to the one man who he believes can save him … Dr. Drew Pinsky.

The details of the arrest are unclear — but the rapper’s lawyer Gary Jenkins tells us “He’s been battling addiction for some time and he’s in need of treatment.”

Jenkins also tells us, “We’re hoping that maybe Dr. Drew might be able to help him.”

DMX — aka Earl Simmons — was arrested a bazillion times over the last two years for all sorts of reasons … including drug charges.

Jenkins added, “He’s a talented man … we’re praying for him.”

The ‘Dog’ DMX Barks @ VIBE…confirms new project is on the way


via VIBE

It’s the No. 10 seed no one saw coming. Nearly three years since his last album, Year of the Dog… Again (Ruff Ryders/Def Jam, 2006), and just one month since being released from an Arizona jail stemming from a series of arrests for drug possession, animal cruelty, and identity theft, DMX is still going strong in VIBE Presents The Best Rapper Ever, going up against Bracket 1’s No. 3 seed, Snoop Dogg, in Round 4’s battle of the Dogs.

To date, the man born Earl Simmons has already knocked off The Game, 50 Cent, and LL Cool J, not a bad run for a troubled superstar who’s spent much of the past five years making more headlines for his brushes with the law than his signature multiplatinum growl on the mic. But with news of a new album on the way (at Hot 97’s Summer Jam this past weekend in New York, producer and longtime collaborator Swizz Beatz promised the Dog’s return in 2010), and the threat of more jail time avoided for now (earlier this month he was given 18 months of supervised probation plus fines for assaulting a Phoenix corrections officer), the unpredictable rapper tells VIBE in this exclusive interview that he’s ready to re-enter the game.

VIBE: It’s been nearly three years since you released your last studio album. During that time you have been involved with a series of legal problems and did jail time. What ran through your mind when you heard that you made it to the sweet 16 bracket of VIBE’s Best Rapper Ever tournament with other hip hop giants like Nas, Rakim, Jay-Z, The Notorious B.I.G., Andre 3000 and 2pac?

DMX: It’s a blessing, man. It lets me know that [all of my work] paid off.

It seems the fans haven’t forgot about you in terms of DMX being an influential rapper. Continue reading

An Arizona judge today (January 30) sentenced DMX to 90 days in prison and 18 months supervised probation for various felony charges including drug possession, identity theft and animal cruelty.

According to The Arizona Republic, DMX (born Earl Simmons) appeared in the smiling Friday but later complained that he had severe pain in his knees and feet. The rapper said he thought he was suffering from gout.

DMX’s Arizona home is reportedly under foreclosure and has been put up for sale by a local bank.

Wheeler divulged that the house’s doors and windows were blown during the raid and it made it easy for thieves to enter the house.

Wheeler claims various items were stolen including DMX’s quads.

“I think people showed up, walked into the house and took what they wanted,” Wheeler said.

The Arizona home appeared in DMX’s reality show which aired on BET in 2006. The Yonkers bred rapper paid $600,000 for the house in 2003 and the bank has put it up for sale for 429,000.

DMX has plead not guilty to recent drug and animal cruelty charges he was charged with last week. X is definetly walking on a thin line and better watch his activities before he finds himself doing some hard time. MTV has the scoop on his court apperance.

DMX has a well-established reputation for showing up late, or not at all, for shows and interviews. But on Thursday, the gravelly voiced rapper was tardy to the one place you never want to be: court. Dressed in a baggy white T-shirt and “dingy” jeans, DMX (born Earl Simmons), walked into the Maricopa County Superior Court in Phoenix an hour late for an arraignment on four felony drug charges and seven misdemeanor animal-cruelty charges, according to the Arizona Republic.

He entered a plea of not guilty on all 11 charges, which stem from an early-morning May 9 raid on his Arizona home by Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies. The raid came seven months after the sheriff’s office launched an investigation into allegations that the rapper was neglecting 12 pit bulls on the property, some of whom were reportedly dehydrated and apparently underfed. The bodies of three dogs were found buried in the backyard. He is charged with two counts of marijuana possession and two for drug paraphernalia based on evidence the police reportedly found in the rapper’s home.

The Republic reported that DMX had no comment for the press, but when asked how he was dealing with the allegations, the rapper — who has said he’s working on both a secular and gospel album — replied, “Prayer.” He described his present situation as “not very pleasant.”
