DMX Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2016

Earl Simmons, to the audience known by a stage name of DMX or sometimes Dark Man X, is a famous American rapper, film producer, as well as an actor. To the public DMX is known as a rapper with a highly successful career in the early 2000s. His album titled “And Then There Was X” was released in 1999 and soon enough became one of the best-selling albums recorded by DMX. In addition to his rapping career, DMX made a name for himself as an actor, as he appeared among some of the more known actors in such movies as “Last Hour”, “Romeo Must Die” and “Exit Wounds”. DMX’s most recent album “Year of the Dog… Again” sold over 344 thousand copies and earned him $350 thousand in 2011. How rich is DMX then?

DMX Net Worth -$10 Million

According to sources, DMX’s net worth is estimated to amount to -10 million. Even though DMX is considered to be one of the best-selling rap artists, his wealth and income have been cut short by his debts. DMX was born in 1970, in Yonkers, New York. Having undergone an abusive and unhealthy childhood, DMX focused on his career in 1988 when he started working as a beatboxer. DMX’s fame spread locally and then a year later he received an offer to sign a deal with “Ruffhouse”, a subsidiary record label of “Columbia Records”. It was with “Ruffhouse” that DMX recorded and released his first single titled “Born Loser”. Even though the song did not do well on the market, it was DMX’s first step to becoming a successful rap artist. However, before DMX launched his solo career, he made appearances on various tracks of such artists as Jay-Z, LL Cool J, Mase and Ja Rule. In 1988, DMX debuted with a single “Get at Me Dog” that received a Gold certification from RIAA and that same year released his debut album called “It’s Dark and Hell is Hot”. Considered to be a classic rap album, “It’s Dark and Hell is Hot” produced four singles and introduced DMX to the music industry.

With the success of his debut album, DMX’s fame rose steadily, which also contributed to his annual salary and a total net worth. That same year, DMX released his second album “Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood”, which peaked at #1 the Billboard charts and sold over 670 thousand copies during its first week. DMX has released a total of seven albums so far but music is not the only career path he has taken. In 1998, he debuted in a role of Tommy Bundy in Hype Williams’ movie “Belly”, where he co-starred with Nas and Tionne Watkins. Two years later he portrayed Silk in a film directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak “Romeo Must Die” with Jet Li, Aaliyah, and Anthony Anderson. DMX’s most recent role is in a 2013 movie “Blame It On The Hustle”. DMX is a well-known face in the entertainment industry. Unfortunately, DMX has approximately $10 million that he owes to his creditors, and therefore his net worth currently amounts to -$10 million.

#Quote
1 [on being release from Columbia Records] Columbia tried to put me behind other groups . . . so I didn't wanna wait . . . they let me out of the contract and I'm glad they did.
2 [on the controversy over what many had criticized as "excessive violence" in his film Belly (2011)] . . . there's a difference between violence and senseless violence . . . this is not a movie about a serial killer just going around killing for no reason . . . for every reason that someone's murdered in there, for every act of violence there's a reason behind it . . . and you can see why, "Okay, that's why he was shot . . . for this reason" . . . "Okay, he had to do that because of this" . . . it's not just killing for no reason." - on the controversy over his film "Belly" on excessive violence.
3 I didn't have the patience to be a drug dealer . . . I'd just wait 'til the end of the day and rob the dealer of his day's takings.
4 The day I will never forget is the day I married my wife, [Tashera Simmons]. Tashera is so special to my boys and me. Her energy is enough to put anyone on a cloud. Her dedication and care gives me comfort and ease.
5 An important and fundamental premise of the American judicial system is the presumption of innocence - that is, until proven guilty.
6 I want "Flesh Of My Flesh" to be like my connection to the community, I want to say what's on my peoples' minds, soak up all their pain. I've learned that when I take it all in, I can make one brotha's pain be understood by the world.
7 I know I may have done some bad things, but I'm not a bad person.
8 I used to do the beat box . . . a friend of mine, he was the rapper and after, we'd be doing a block party or something or a house party, and he's gettin' all the attention and I'd end up with a handful of spit, you know, from doing the beats . . . and I was like, "You got to be the rapper" . . . the rapper's the man . . .
9 To live is to suffer, but to survive, well, that's to find meaning in the suffering.
