DMX In Hot Seat Again, Misses Court Date For Driving Violation
DMX's legal issues continue to mount as the Yonkers bred rapper failed to make an appearance in court yesterday (March 7) to answer for a February traffic arrest in his hometown of Yonkers.
According to reports, X (born Earl Simmons) was found driving with a suspended license on February 2 after blowing a red light. During Wednesday's proceedings the prosecutor asked the judge to issue a warrant for the rapper's arrest, but the request was denied.
X also reportedly missed a pretrial hearing on Tuesday (March 6) related to another traffic arrest.
As previously reported, the gritty voiced lyricist was arrested in June of last year for driving at unreasonable speeds, making unsafe lane changes and driving without a license.
X missed two court dates related to that arrest and was jailed overnight before posting a $2,500 bond.
Foxy Brown Charged With Battery and Resisting Arrest
Prosecutors in Broward County, FL officially filed charges of battery and resisting arrest without violence against Foxy Brown on Wednesday (March 7) according to a report by website TMZ.com.
The charges stem from a February 15 incident during which Queen Beauty Supply owner Hayssam Ghoneim claims the rapper squirted hair glue at him, attempted to push him and knocked over display shelves in the store. A police officer who responded to a call placed by Ghoneim later stated that he had to employ a "takedown maneuver" on the diminutive rapper when he took her into custody.
During a press conference on February 26, she denied the allegations and suggested that the Broward County Police were guilty of racial profiling and police brutality. On March 1, Foxy pleaded guilty to violating her probation by traveling to Florida without prior permission, and was ordered by the judge to continue serving her six month probation sentence from a prior assault charge.
Bow Wow Gets Down To Business, Investing In NBA Team
Music may be Bow Wow’s present occupation, but the rapper is laying the groundwork for life beyond the mic with various business ventures.
Among those is Prestigious, a shoe store he co-owns with Atlanta radio personality Greg Street.
The store is the first taste of business success away from the music industry for Bow Wow, who plans on opening another sneaker store, franchising his first McDonald’s and sharing ownership of an NBA basketball team.
"I can’t say what team yet, but it’s definitely gonna go down with a certain NBA team," Bow Wow told AHH.com and hinted that news about the investment will be made public at the end of next month.
Those wondering if Bow Wow’s pursuit of acting has taken a backseat need not worry. The multi-tasking emcee is taking steps to make major moves on the big screen.
"I have a lot of stuff on the table," Bow Wow said. "I want to do two movies this year and I definitely have the opportunity to do so. Be expecting two movies out of Bow Wow. Two big movies out of me. I guarantee one of these could possibly be, if I do this movie, could definitely be like an Oscar role or an Oscar movie for sure."
With Blacks making strides at the recent Academy Awards, the opportunity seems right for the rapper to make an impression.
"Black Hollywood is definitely wide open and I’m just trying to really go ahead and take it over now," Bow Wow shared. "I got the opportunity to do so. Why not?"
Despite the surge in extracurricular activities, Bow Wow is aware that his good fortune stems from what got him to the table.
The rapper, who is currently gearing up for a summer tour, will soon be heard alongside Mariah Carey on Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's forthcoming album Strength and Loyalty.
"Music has always been something that I love to do, but at the same time it’s opened up a lot of doors for myself to tap in to different markets," said Bow Wow, who is anxious to get back into the studio to start work on the follow up to his most recent album, The Price Of Fame "Luckily, these markets have been things that I’ve been dying to do and that I really want to do as far as movies and other business ventures, so life is great right now, I can’t complain at all," Bow Wow said.
Buck and Game make peace.
Only days before the anniversary of Big's death, Buck and Game have squashed their feud. Interestingly, 50 Cent and Game also "ended" their beef nearly two years ago on March 9th. Let's just hope this one remains peaceful. Word is DJ Reflex and DJ Skee of Los Angeles' Power 106 put Game and Buck on the phone earlier this week.
The two were actually slated to meet at the station later that day, but Buck's legal team wouldn't let him go up due to cases he has pending.
"It basically went from Buck and Game coming to the studio tonight with me and you to let LA know that they're all good, everything is cool, they're moving on, to a phone call 30 minutes ago saying that Buck's legal wouldn't let him come up because there are cases that he has in D.C. and this and that," Skee revealed. "
Great news that Buck and Game did get on the phone in LA today and they both came to a conclusion that it's time to move on, it's all good, that Vegas stuff, let's put it behind us. Let's keep it moving."

The G-Unit boss divulged to Blender magazine that after he drops his third album, Before I Self Destruct, this year, he will release a follow up in February 2008.
According to 50 (born Curtis Jackson), the album due in '08 will be his last CD of original material for Interscope Records; since his five-album deal with the label includes a greatest hits disc.

New Orleans rapper Juvenile is being sued for damage he and his crew allegedly caused to a tour bus they were renting from a Tennessee based bus company.
According to the Nashville Post, Ziggy's Custom Coaches filed suit against Juvie and and his UTP Records last week in Davidson County Court. The lawsuit states that "the bus was trashed, evidencing splashes from a liquid that stained curtains that were torn off of their rods, trash everywhere, burn holes were in the upholstery, and the rear cooler counter-top was broken."
In addition to the $2357 that it cost to repair the damages, the plaintiff is seeking "all of the remaining periodic payments under the lease." The lease specified a charge of $750 per day.
Rap-A-Lot Records CEO J. Prince and Aubrey Francis, both of whom are listed as partners in the UTP label, are also named in the suit.

Young Buck Involved in Club Brawl In NYC
G-Unit rapper Young Buck was reportedly involved in a physical altercation at New York City nightspot Eugene last Friday (March 3).
According to New York's Daily News the Tennessee MC and his entourage left the Chelsea club after an unpleasant exchange of words turned into real violence.
"It was one of those fights where everybody was going at each other," a witness told the Daily News. "Young Buck looked like he wanted a piece of the action and started swinging punches, too." No injuries were reported as a result of the incident.
In related news, 50, who is engaged in a lyrical battle with Cam'ron, recently fired back at the DipSet rapper in Young Buck's "Hold On" video, which also surfaced on the internet on Friday. At the end of the clip, 50 pokes fun at Cam's pink truck and claims the Harlem emcee has AIDS and not Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
"You taking about you got IBS, you got A-I-D-S, that's why they call you Killa," scoffs 50. "Fuck around and brush your teeth, your teeth bleeding, niggas drink behind you and have all kinds of shit. They show up 30 pounds lighter, taking about 'All I remember is I had a little bit of Cam Snapple.'"
C-Murder Gag Order Lifted By Judge
A Louisiana judge ruled last week that Corey Miller, better known as C-Murder, can promote his latest CD and novel while under house arrest, but still cannot discuss his second-degree murder charge.
The 35-year-old rapper, brother of Percy "Master P" Miller, was ordered to remain at his grandma's house in Kenner, La., until a new trial is scheduled regarding the 2002 death of a 16-year-old, who was shot during a club brawl.
"As it pertains to his livelihood, (Miller) can speak to whomever he likes on the phone insofar as it doesn't relate to this case," said Judge Martha Sassone.
In June, the judge ordered against Miler "discussing or divulging any aspects of this case without anyone not a party.
" In court papers filed last month, Miller's legal team said the gag order violated his constitutional right to free speech, adding that Miller faces "severe consequences" because he cannot earn money to pay legal fees and to support his family.
Twice last fall, Sassone turned down Miller's request for interviews to promote his CD, but allowed him to be photographed in his grandmother's home.
While imprisoned Miller also wrote the book, "Death Around the Corner." According to his author's notes, Miller wrote the manuscript in jail and mailed the notebooks to family members over a two-year period.
