Mind you, he’s still knee deep in Westchester arrest warrants, charges of animal cruelty, and weapons possession. But hey, the guy will take what he can get.
The latest AP update to the raid on the rapper’s Arizona home came last week, as investigators confirmed that the chunky substance seized from DMX’s bedroom was not meth or any other illegal drug. I’m guessing maybe BC headache powder, is a dead ringer for at least a half dozen narcotics, or else pit bull creatine.
Anyway, that’s the good news. The bad? They still found a sizable quantity of illegal marijuana.
Oh, also drug paraphernalia, guns, ammo, and — worst of all — three dead dogs. Throw in the 12 other malnourished dogs that were taken into custody and, well, the man is still in quite a pickle. Although no charges have been filed yet, it now seems all but certain that the artist, also known as Earl Simmons, will soon be a wanted man in two states (I’ll spare you the full recap of his two outstanding arrest warrants in Westchester).
The big question, then, is simple: Where the heck is he?
His concert tour appears to have been scrapped. And when reporters in Arizona asked DMX’s lawyer, Murray Richman, about the rapper’s whereabouts, his answer was simply, “Why should I tell you.” (By the way, love answer. Just love it.)
Richman also told Spin that “He is not in the U.S.”
Given the man’s luck lately, it honestly wouldn’t surprise me if, in his haste to get the hell out of Dodge, he decided to take a little vacation to Central America. I hear Belize and Honduras are beautiful this time of year. Excepting the occasional Class Five hurricane of course.
