He may be in jail, but that hasn’t stopped rapper DMX from suing Rich Kid Entertainment for $ 1 million. The company has apparently ripped him off in royalties. The charges are that Rich Kid took 100% of the funds from a contract that was signed a decade ago. They were apparently only supposed to take a 10% cut. D’oh!
The suit, filed in the Manhattan Supreme Court under his real name Earl Simmons, says, “DMX has sold over 30 million albums worldwide and has had No. 1 singles and albums on the Billboard charts, which in turn have generated a great amount of revenue for Defendants, but has left [DMX] with nothing.” DMX has got into trouble with the law numerous times for drugs, theft, animal cruelty and refusing to put his safety belt on while in a plane.
