DMX Fires Management, “I’ve Cut These Thieves Out Of My Life”

DMX Sets The Record Straight On Fake Reps

DMX vowed to leave the drugs alone and now he’s separating himself from his old management as well.

A new way of life calls for new surroundings and X released a statement to RapFix which said, “I fired my old management team the day I got out of prison. My money and career have been sabotaged for long enough. Makin’ music and performing for my fans, that’s what I’m doin’ now. The Dog is back and I’ve cut these thieves out of my life.”

His new manager Jason Fowler of J-Mike Management & Entertainment stated that there were fake shows being set up and deposits were made but DMX knew nothing about the performances.

“All bookings must be through his new management team, because DMX is not responsible for any transactions that are not through J-Mike Management & Entertainment,” said Fowler in the statement. So if you want to know what’s up with DMX or if you’re interested in booking the rehabilitated dog then the place to go is www.theofficialdmx.com.

Speaking on her book with the NYDN, Coco says that she relayed her dreams to author Laura Hayden who tells the story of a woman with the supernatural ability to channel men’s desires and uses it to solve mysteries.

“Mine came to me in a dream,” Coco says of her plan for the book. “I always have crazy dreams. I wake up and tell my husband these amazing stories, but sometimes I just don’t want to wake up.

“When you can be that perfect woman for a man, you can get inside his head and solve anything.For Ice, I am that perfect woman. I’ve turned into what he wants.”

Ice also explained how he got his concept for “Kings Of Vice” telling The New York Daily News, the idea largely came after seeing the 1979 film “Warriors”where the most powerful gang leader in New York is shot after calling for all gangs to unite.

Rick Ross’ Ex, Elise Neal, Blames Handlers For Health Problems Ross’ Ex: “I Saw This Coming”

After Rick Ross’ recent medical emergency, many are wondering if the Bawse has long term health issues.

According to the rapper’s former girlfriend however, the biggest detriment to the rapper’s well-being is his label and closest advisors.

Actress Elise Neal who dated The Bawe earlier this year told RumorFix.com,

“I hate to say this, but I saw that coming.I think [his record label] pushing him too hard.”

“I know he’s very career driven, but I don’t think they take enough time to care about what they’re doing to his body,” she added. “

They don’t think about him or his health, pushing him to do all theses videos, pushing tours and shows. He is not 20 years old anymore – not one seems to care about him really or overall his health.”

Neal doesn’t believe Ross’ health issues should fall squarely on the rapper for some reason, deflecting responsibility on others around him.

“If you have a medical emergency…if you have people who are closest around you saying ‘You’ve alright – you’re going to be more apt to say, ‘I’m alright,’” she said.

Is this solely on Ross?

Or does Neal have a point?
