DMX Bankruptcy Filing Rejected By Federal Judge

DMX's attempts to claim bankruptcy are denied as he is now fair game for creditors.

A New York federal judge has denied DMX's recent bankruptcy filing.

According to The Journal News, The 42-year-old Yonkers, New York native had his bankruptcy claim shot down Friday due to noncompliance. X is slated to lose numerous possessions, including his share of a Mount Kisco home as the ruling makes his property attainable by creditors.

X's publicist, Domenick Nati says his client's most recent run in with financial troubles will not hinder his upcoming musical performances.

"Despite this recent obstacle, the team will continue to move forward with DMX's national performances and we are still working relentlessly at obtaining his passport for his fans overseas."

X filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on July 29. According to filed documents in Manhattan court, the rapper born Earl Simmons stated he has $50,000 in assets, while owing between $1 and $10 million in debts. Simmons' biggest debt is the $1.3 million he owes in child support.

DMX has faced numerous legal setbacks in his career and as of late. Last week the former Ruff Ryders rapper was arrested in South Carolina on charges of driving with a suspended license, not having a car tag and not having automobile insurance. In late August, he was reportedly riding as a passenger in a Ford F-350 pick-up truck when the vehicle made an illegal lane-change.

    Loser and a failure. Please, no more DMX reports. At this point it's worthless.

  • Swift

    The illuminati didn't keep DMX. DMX kept himself down. He's just another artist who blames something else for his fucking stupid failures. You had it all but fucked it up for pride. You're so fucking stupid! Then he wants to preach. What an idiot!

    • @@Swift

      No I don't , why don't you explain?

    • @Swift

      Dont duplicate the dude, dude. U know what Im talkin about.

    • Swift

      Lol awww are you mad that I offended your crackhead hero? Yes succeeded and failed...that's not success. Don't be mad about the facts. A real winner like me? Yes I never smoked cracked or made 10 kids from different baby mothers and has never got arrested. If you are going to succeed, continue. Not drop it because you're so ignorant to your own beliefs of being "real". I bet he wishes it was 1998 again so he can feed his 10 kids and court fines along with other bullshit he caused himself to get into.

      if a crackhead fucking loser was able to accomplish so much and sell so many records and contribute so much to hip-hop i cant even imagine what a real winner like you has done with your life!

    • Swift

      He has blames the industry and never realizes his fuck ups are his fault. Why anyone ever tries to seek knowledge from this guy is numbingly mind fucked. He always says stupid shit like "oh they out to get me" you dumb fuck your drive well over the speed limit with drugs on you or intoxicated with a suspended license but no his reply is " cuz I'm a jail Nigga, I'm a real nigga arf arf" what a fucking loser.

      when did DMX ever blame someone else?

  • Jim

    Well if X didn't spend his money on stupid fucking cars, homes, clothes, getting arrested, continuously getting stupid women pregnant and acting so "real" and ignorant. He wouldn't be in the shitty situation or I should say situations that he's in now. He's fucking stupid! Always has been and always will be! Where did keeping it real take you DMX? Nowhere!!!!! Bark your way into paying all of these debts.

  • Nick T

    X was/is like the slayer of rap music. everybody knows him and everybody loves his stuff because it was so in your face and dark. X is by far one of the best MCs ever because of how raw his songs and lyrics were. His 1st album was the kind of shit that makes you want to lock up your doors and turn all your lights on cos youre spazzing.

    DMX is the only dude with enough influence who's actually willing to say something about wack motherfuckers. When Nas said hip hop is dead, he said he meant that it was because label heads controlled the music, and rappers lost control. But, DMX is actually calling out wack motherfuckers for their content.

    Keep yo head up X! You r one of the dopest and most original niggas to ever fuck with this rap shit. You got good material inside you! JUST STAY CLEAN AND FOCUS ON YOUR CRAFT!

  • FucktheBS

    Damn, the fuckers just won't give poor guy a break, do they? I have no idea why they have to keep him down by all costs, let the man travel to earn money to pay the fucking debts if that's so important!!! Dude still has plenty of star power abroad, arrange a deal so he and his kids can have their home, no need for this petty bullshit. "In late August, he was reportedly riding as a passenger in a Ford F-350 pick-up truck when the vehicle made an illegal lane-change." Oh no, illegal lane change??? WOW, that sounds like a real serious crime!!! Throw the man in jail right now, hell better give death sentence just to be sure!!! The fuck is this world coming to..

    What happened DX fags? He was a legend when he was dissing drake, but now he's a crackhead. FlipFlopDXer's.

    • Anonymous

      ...A year or two ago: "X is a legend", "X is one of the realest". Now: "He spent this money on crack", "This nigga is sorry". Moral of the story is, if you want to be considered a legend around here, diss Drake. Make sure you keep dissing him, because they'll turn on you. Same thing happened to that faggot Ludacris, good thing I've always thought he was shit except for his first three albums.

    • @Kidzman

      Nigga u talkin to yourself here. Completly off subject, nobody was talking about that shit.

    • Kizman

      And seriously, all jokes aside, on the comparison between DMX and 2Pac... The only reason that people say that 2Pac is the greatest is because he died. But no one was saying that when he was still alive. Same goes for Biggie Smalls. Don't get me wrong, they were good artists, but how is it that when they died all of a sudden people say that they are the best? People just need to wake up, and get in tune with reality.

      -and guess who's still living- Just about.

    • @Kidzman

      Nigga is u on the right comment? who said anything about Pac lol.

    • Kizman

      DMX made 5 #1 triple platinum albums. X would lyrically murder 2pac. Oh yeah..... and guess who's still livin today. At least X was smart enough not to get himself shot.

    • HIPHOPDX

I genuinely hate this dude cus he has no respect for his life while others die in hospitals begging god for more time, smh DMX is a fuckin loser, says alot about u defending his dumbass. Next time dont be so mad and buthurt cus I offended your "idol" lil bitch, if pussies get eaeen the u got ate nigga.

    this dude is most definitely the biggest failure the hip-hop community ever seen only assholes and his hardcore fans keep shouting "dmx is the truth" there must be some reason for someone to have such a bad karma in his life. and it is definitely the race card ! this dude cannot even make the right choice no matter how many times people gave him plenty of opportunities to do so

  • So Icy Boi!

    DMX is broke and Drake is rich as fuck. conclusion? don't diss Drake or Lil Wayne they will fuck your life up fags. swag

      ....? But drake is a pussy....Seems like only females and pussies have drakes back. Ok, i get you are tryin to be a troll, but man, you must be a very pathetic person....on so many levels

      so Drake told him to stop paying child support?

  • Jdagw

    Man stop using that bullshit card, you guys run that excuse for everything. If he was a regular dude like us , he would be in prison for like 30 years by now. This guy has escaped jail time and given multiple chances but he chooses to do drugs and alcohol. So this doesn't apply here.
