DMX Net Worth
Profession: Rapper, actor
Place of Birth: Mount Vernon, NY
Net Worth: -$10 Million
Height: 5 ft 10 in
DMX was born Earl Simmons in Mount Vernon, NY and raised in Yonkers. After many years of legal trouble, DMX has a current estimated net worth of negative $10 million.
DMX built a following with features on tracks with Jay-Z, Ja Rule, Mase, and the LOX in the early 1990s. In total, DMX has released seven studio albums since his 1998 debut “It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot”. That album sold more than five million copies alone and the single “Get At Me Dog” went gold. Overall DMX has sold 70 million albums worldwide to date and is the only rapper besides Tupac to have 2 albums go platinum in the same year. He won American Music Awards in 2000 and 2001 for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist and has been nominated for three Grammy Awards and five MTV Music Video Awards.
DMX also starred in eight films and released his autobiography, entitled, “E.A.R.L.: The Autobiography of DMX” in 2003.
In late July 2013, DMX filed for bankruptcy in a Manhattan court. In his filing, DMX claims to have roughly $50,000 in assets and somewhere between $1 million and $10 million worth of debt to various creditors. His debts include $1.24 million in child support for his 15 children. In 2017, he appeared in court and was charged with 14 counts of tax fraud for about $1.7 million.
DMX legal troubles have prevented him from performing overseas again, where he still has an active fan base. In 2017 he signed on to a reality show about his rehabilitation and does shows wherever possible. Hopefully this new venture will bring DMX’s net worth back up from his current negative $10 million status.
