DMX Released From Prison, Now Faces Assault Charges
XXLMag.com has learned that DMX has been released from Tent City Jail in Arizona.
X’s publicist Pam Pinnock told XXL that the troubled rapper was freed yesterday and is currently out on bail after serving three months behind bars for drug, theft and animal cruelty charges. Although he has served his time for his problems before entering the facility, the Yonkers MC is not out of the weeds yet in regards to the charges he picked up once in the system. Pinnock says X is scheduled for a May 19 court date stemming from an assault case on a jail officer. The rapper has publicly denied the incident.
DMX, who is currently signed to indie label Bulldog Records, is working on a new rap album with fellow Ruff Ryder Swizz Beatz. His rep tells interested parties that X is presently available for guest appearances.
The Game: ‘Rededicated To Hip-Hop’ On The R.E.D. Album’
The Game’s new LP, The R.E.D. Album, was not inspired by him being a Blood. It’s not a clever play on words or some type of tip of the fitted cap to Jay-Z’s Black Album. Nah, the Compton native’s CD is all about him restarting his engine.the_game_rapper
“The R.E.D. Album, people think the R.E.D. stands for gangbanging. I am what I am. … R.E.D. — that’s rededicated. Rededicated to hip-hop … to my hood, Compton. Rededicated to my family, rededicated to everything.”
And yes, that rededication means the end of Game’s retirement talk. He says the album will be out in ‘09 and he’s already been in the studio with Timbaland, J.R. Rotem, Drumma Boy and former Aftermath producer Mike Lynn. Cool and Dre are scheduled to come in on the album and Game also hopes to track Kanye West down for beats.
“The R.E.D. Album is about to be serious, man,” he promised. “It’s a step up. The R.E.D. Album, it’s a little soulful, I gotta say. Still gangsta — we getting it in. I’m keeping everything on wraps right now.
“This album … it’s gonna be different,” he added. “I was wondering to myself how I’m gonna elevate myself and even change the field. Three albums … what do you talk about after three albums? I ain’t selling crack and gangbanging and shooting sh– up. My beefs have been down-low. So what do you really talk about? I just wanna rap man. I just wanna do music. Whatever it turns out to be, it turns out to be. Long as every song has that collective feel — they gel — then we good. I’m just gonna rap this time.”

Ice-T Takes on Digital Label
Fed up with the current state of Hip Hop and what he calls “bubblegum Pop” rapper and actor Ice-T has decided to create his own digital label.
According to the New York Daily News, the Law & Order: SVU star will be launching his digital label which will be put out by EMI in the near future.
“I’m starting a digital label through EMI,” Ice-T explained to the Daily News. “I’m trying to get back to more Hip Hop. To me, music right now is like Disco. It’s very sing-songy, and nobody’s dealing with content. That’s what I miss. I miss Tupac and Big. You got Lupe Fiasco and T.I. now, but in general, we’re swamped with bubblegum Pop.“
Ice-T currently has five artists from different parts of the country signed to his label.
“We’ve got an artist from L.A., a group called Certified from Washington state, Born Twice from Houston, and a Korean kid from New York. I’m playing the whole map,” Ice-T revealed.
In 1987, Ice-T released his first album entitled Rhyme Pays. Since the release of Rhyme Pays, Ice-T has gone on to release upwards 10 albums. In the late ’90s, he had operated a previous label, Coroner Records, where he released his 1999 Seven Deadly Sins album. He has starred in a number of films including Breakin’ and New Jack City.
