Dmx Pulls Out Of Iraq Trip

Troubled rapper DMX has upset US troops after mysteriously cancelling his planned tour of army bases in Kuwait and Iraq. The WHERE THE HOOD AT hitmaker, real name EARL SIMMONS, was scheduled to leave America for the Persian Gulf on Tuesday (22AUG06), but failed to turn up at the airport. United Service Organisations (USO) senior vice president JOHN HANSON says, “We are extremely disappointed that DMX decided not to complete the tour he asked us to arrange for him. “When we announced this tour, troops were extremely excited about the possibility of seeing a performer they admired. We understand their disappointment.” Hanson added the hip-hop star asked to perform only two weeks before his scheduled arrival, when usually such visits take up to 45 days. Hanson laments, “This tour was put together in just under two weeks, because we know how much service men and women appreciate his performances. Mr Simmons let a lot of people down.” DMX is yet to publicly release a statement regarding the cancellation, but started filming his new movie MARBLE CITY alongside VIVICA A FOX in Arizona last month (JUL06).

When it come to rapping, or acting DMX is very good. Listening to him rapping, make lots of people think he's really gangster by listening to his lyrics, or even watching him acting on T.V. The point I'm wanna get across, it's easy to talk s**t threw the Mic. All of America NOW know he's studio material. only
