DMX may be heading back to court yet again, but this time he’ll be sitting in the plaintiff’s chair for a change. The troubled rapper is suing a company he claims pocketed close to $1 million that he believes belongs to him.
According to New York’s Daily News, the Yonkers rapper filed the suit against Rick Kid Entertainment on Monday (April 26). X alleges the company took 100-percent of the funds he earned instead of the 10-percent cut they both agreed on.
“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 the defendants, but has left [DMX] with nothing,” the suit reads.
Although he has been in business with Rich Kid Entertainment for over a decade, X says he just recently noticed that he was being ripped off.
He probably just noticed he was being ripped off because he’s been in and out of jail for the past 10 years. They probably took 100 percent of the profit because they knew he would be in jail. What a vicious cycle.
