Once at the top of the charts, New York rapper DMX has been in the news lately more for his brushes with the law than his musical talents. However he’s hoping to turn over a new leaf, starting with a visit to 106 & Park tonight, Tuesday, October 11 to drop off his new joint and his performance on the BET Hip Hop Awards 2011.
Earl “DMX” Simmons captivated hip hop fans in the late '90s. He remains the only artist to release two No. 1 albums in the same calendar year: It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot and Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood. His stage charisma translated to big screen success with well-received performances in Belly, Romeo Must Die, Exit Wounds and other films. Outside of his work, he has been arrested multiple times — weapons charges, drug possession, driving infractions — and served time in jail repeatedly.
Tune into 106 & Park tonight, Tuesday, October 11 to watch DMX debut his new joint, "Last Hope" and discuss his Hip Hop Awards performance.
