Rap sheet a mile long but not one mention of any violence. Not even a misdemeanor assault.

But obviously he is violent... Cause lyrics...


Profiling is real.

But do you.

Just don't free him around airports. Or cars. OR crack. Cuz otherwise he's perfectly fine. Unless a photo of DMX drop-kicking a pitbull surfaces, DMX 'Ruff Rydas Anthem stays on the gym mix. That song is adrenaline.

Mermaid, I think you spoil some valid arguments with your quote here. It's just common sense, when you are a celebrity, not to do anything unlawful. Look at Willie Nelson. He's a white country singer FROM Texas. He was arrested IN Texas. Cops there don't like weed. He was vocal about breaking the law. His tour bus was pulled over.

Shepard Fairey, (the prolific street artist who did Obama Hope/ 2008 Campaign poster) was arrested in Boston. He was invited there by a Boston museum to do a showing. Nine Boston 'Vandal/ Graffiti' Detectives immediately arrested him. He was charged with 32 felonies.

Again. Common sense. If you're in the spotlight - watch out. It's slippy.

DMX is rich. Affording bail, an attorney, and huge fines is exactly why I have zero sympathy for his situation. Also isn't Corporate Welfare/ avoiding taxes a ginormous problem in our country? How is letting DMX, (an incredibly wealthy entertainer) off the hook any different?

"He's a rapper. He's profiled."

Get real. He's a mess and he's famous.

Yes, and white people also get shot by the police.

Doesn't change that there is an obvious difference in treatment between groups.

What does being a mess and famous have to do with him being violent?

Who said anything about letting him off the hook for tax evasion?

Are being a mess and being profiled mutually exclusive circumstances? Why can't it be both?

If he is an addict, and can't fight the addiction for whatever reason, fame or money will not help him. He isn't in control of his life.

Is it his fault? I don't know and it doesn't even matter.

I actually agree with you. His lyrics are violent. His crimes, (like animal abuse and robbery) would indicate violence, but he's never been charged.

DMX smoked crack, did oxycontin, and tried to steal a car, (at an airport) while impersonating a federal agent.

He's a mess. He needs help.

And the thing about addiction is, he needs help for sure.
But he also needs to want help, want to be sober, and to find some new meaning in his life, new friends who are into something else than drugs.

I'm sure that's hard, but it's the only way.
