My crib’s about to belong to someone else

Posted by Media Outrage on January 5, 2009


DMX is a walking catastrophe. Forget the fact that he’s been arrested more times than we can count, well now his crib is in foreclosure.

Via AHH:

In addition to his legal woes, embattled rapper DMX has fallen victim to the harshness of the current real estate market His luxurious Arizona home is in shambles and is now facing foreclosure.

The five bedroom house, which lies on a sprawl in the Cave Creek valley outside of Phoenix, is currently on the market for $429,000, nearly $200,000 less than the multi-platinum selling rapper paid for the home in 2003.

Had the home been kept in proper condition, it should be worth nearly $650,000, according to a local real estate agent in charge of selling the home. 

The house is being sold on behalf of the bank and according to DMX‘s wife Tashera Simmons, part of the reason for the home’s poor condition is that after the Simmons separated, no one took care of the home.

In addition to the fact that the family ceased paying for the cleaning service that had previously taken care of the home in their absence, the home was further left damaged after a SWAT Team raid in May of last year.

The raid, which resulted in the X’s arrest on drug and animal cruelty charges, left several open access points for thieves to access the home.

Following the SWAT Team’s investigation, the house’s front door was left blown in, as well as several broken windows around the property.

They also left the tile and carpet throughout the house charred.

In the months since, burglars have removed nearly all valuables in the home, including DMX’s ATV recreational vehicles.

To make matters worse, when the bank took over the property, they found anything that the thieves deemed uninteresting simply laying in the pool.

The real estate company selling the house, which was showcased on DMX’s 2006 BET reality show Soul of a Man, hopes to still sell the house, despite it’s current condition.

    well its time for dude to get his shit together, he only has himself to blame for the situation he is in, with drugs, jail, etc, he has the power to make decisions in life, and not do drugs, how he got into drugs i dont know, but im sure we all have the power to SAY NO, why do people think gettin high is such a big thing, smoking herb, drinking, sniffing whatever they do. its to bad, he thought more of drugs and bullshit, than maintaining his valuables and assets, and building so in his golden age, he will be comfortable beyond words, to live good, damn fool. i dont have pity for any grown ass person that has the power to think twice and SAY NO, fuck that!!

    He don’t need a crib! He already lives in jail. no rent,no utility,food paid for, already furnished. Hell since life is to hard and he can’t stand the blessings he had gone to jail and shut your brain down. Let someone else think for you. Just get up when they say go here,go there, take a bath, take a shit, go to bed…Dumb bastard i can’t even feel sorry for this PUNK!
