Here it comes!

DMX was arrested in South Carolina last night after being pulled over by police. But according to the Ruff Ryder rapper, he did NOTHING wrong!
X says cops stopped a car he was riding in after it made a LEGAL U-turn. DMX was then placed in hand cuffs after police on the scene discovered there was a warrant out for his arrest due to a previous case where he was found to be driving without a license.
Marijuana was also reportedly found in the vehicle.
When DMX gets his day in court though, he'll have some video to play for the judge! A friend with him at the time recorded the whole thing!
In the tape, DMX can be heard yelling:
Ohhh! Noooo! That's how Ruff Ryders roll!
According to court documents filed Monday, the rapper is now listing less than $50K in assets! Aside from a 50% stake in his Mount Kisco, NY estate, DMX is down to nearly nothing!
Ooof. That's not good!
His financial woes get worse though.
DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, is also said to owe up to $10 MILLION, including $1.24 million in back child support!
Today, the original Ruff Ryder released a statement explaining how he got so deep in the hole. His camp explained:
“DMX’s financial strains have been inhibiting his career for several years. Poor financial management by prior representation have caused him to be ineligible to retain a passport. The purpose of this bankruptcy filing is for reorganization so he can perform for his fans overseas. We are currently planning a tour in Europe and Africa for the fall of 2013.”
Really??? A European/African tour is the answer to financial stability? Is France overflowing with DMX fans, or something???
For the sake of his TEN children (yes, that's ten, as in 1-0) we hope he can get his act together and start making hits like he did in the 90s and 2000s!
Maybe DMX should follow his own advice and stop, drop, shut 'em down and open up shop. Actually, we have no idea what that means.
Whatever, just get it together, dude!

Oh no! Not again!
Since the last time DMX was arrested, the whole world has changed. In fact, it's moved almost halfway around the sun!
Just like before the Get It On The Floor rapper got it on the road. But instead of too little license, he apparently had too much booze.
DMX was pulled over by South Carolina's highway patrol and arrested for driving under the influence early Friday morning.
We guess being a seasoned veteran of the booking process helped speed things along; DMX was in and out of the police station in about an hour!
We're surprised the fingerprint officer didn't give him a speeding ticket!
DMX had a little bit of a meltdown during a reunion with his son recently… one that was part of an OWN show and involved a self-help guru who was trying to mend the father/son relationship!
The meltdown definitely made the rapper appear as if he was erratic and strung out, but that wasn't the only weird part of the episode! The show, Iyanla: Fix My Life had DMX also answering questions about his drug use (above, near the end) — and the floodgates opened.
The thing is, DMX said he was tricked into situations where he was blindsided, and the erratic nature of his responses had to do with expecting a whole different set of questions! Apparently she was supposed to ask him about his addiction to women, not his drug use. The drug use questions were NOT cleared before hand, according to X!
Here's what he says:
This did not go as planned!
Everyone knows that trying to help someone in trouble is NOT an easy thing.
And Iyanla Vanzant of the OWN series Iyanla: Fix My Life knows that better than anyone!
But even she probably didn’t know what she was getting into while trying to help DMX reunite with his son, Xavier, whom he has been estranged from for about a year-and-a-half.
While things were calm for about a second, shizz hit the fan as DMX goes off on Iyanla for EVERYTHING!
From drug accusations to emotional pain, everything laid out on the table straight up EXPLODES.
We sure hope things have since been resolved, but it’d be hard to believe considering this interaction.
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!
Are you ready to LOSE YOUR MIND up in here?!
During Alicia Keys' Madison Square Garden gig last night, her husband Swizz Beatz and his former Ruff Ryder companion DMX hopped on stage and drove the crowd WILD when they spat a few lyrics of the original Ruff Ryder's Anthem…
But THEN they launched into their RAGING 2000 hit, Party Up (Up in Here)!!
And the audience proceded to party their faces off.
Glad to see DMX is involving himself in non arrest-worthy hijinks!
Witness this GLORIOUS Ruff Ryder mini-reunion …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
This ain’t his first time at the rodeo.
DMX was arrested once again as he was caught driving without a license in South Carolina.
The rapper was caught by an officer, got handcuffed and put through a very familiar ordeal.
Considering he has been arrested many times before on many different charges, this minor arrest was no big deal to him as he commented:
