Rapper DMX Says He Was Framed On Latest Drug Charge


Rapper DMX thinks there’s something fishy about his most recent arrest for marijuana possession.
The rapper was arrested on Tuesday after a traffic stop in South Carolina. Police observed the car he was riding in make an illegal U-turn, and after pulling the car over found some marijuana inside.
From the onset, DMX seemed to think there was something strange about the stop.
“This ain’t no normal traffic stop,” he was heard saying. “18 cops, 5 cars, get the f— outta here man.”
After police found the bag of marijuana, DMX released a statement saying he had nothing to do with the drugs. The rapper’s PR representative said DMX was riding in the car with two assistants, Shawn Durham and Shawn Rhodes, and that the drugs didn’t belong to him.
The rep released a statement on behalf of the rapper, whose real name is Earl Little, that read:
“DMX was driving in the passenger seat when the vehicle he was in was pulled over last night. Although officers pulled them over for a minor traffic violation, DMX was asked to step outside so they can search the vehicle. Officers then claimed that they found bags of marijuana in the floorboard and arrested X. No drugs were found on DMX or the other passengers and the alleged bags of marijuana were never shown to DMX or the other passengers. DMX was released this morning at approximately 11am EST and is back at his home in South Carolina.”
A police report said rapper DMX also smelled as if he had been drinking, and that police found three bags of marijuana under the floorboard of the car.
The 42-year-old rapper has gotten into quite a bit of trouble in the last few months. In July he was arrested in Greenville County, South Carolina on suspicion of DUI, but got out of it after passing a Breathalyzer test. He was also arrested in February on a charge of driving without a license, and has filed for bankruptcy protection with a $1.24 million child support bill outstanding.
After the incident rapper DMX was released from jail, but was placed under house arrest.
