DMX the actor and a record producer but known by many as a rapper. A man who has sold more than 86 million albums in his career as a musician how on earth would he be with negative net worth. DMX, since 2000 to date, has been arrested more than 15 times and charged with drug possession, aggravated assault, animal cruelty, lack of child support, robbery, drunk driving, and many more, but the most shocking is his filing of bankruptcy in several occasions.
Recently DMX has been charged with 14 counts of tax fraud-related cases, and it adds up to $1.7 million, which if found guilty, might face four decades behind bars. Given the current situation, let me enlighten you on how DMX’s net worth is in a downward speed lane.
Earl Simmons is the son of Arnett Simmons and Joe Barker, who gave birth to him in 1970 in the state of New York.

Believe it or not, DMX is the Fifth Best-Selling Rap Artist of the Nielsen SoundScan era in America. He broke through the mainstream with his first album It’s Dark, and Hell is Hot 1998, which peaked at the top spot on Billboard 200 chart and sold over 5 million copies. His quest for being the top rapper dint end there as he released his second album Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood 1998, and this too went atop of Billboard 200, making him the only rapper in all history to have two albums same year debut at number one.
He released his third album and in 1999 titled, And Then There was X which debuted to the top of Billboard 200, and as of today it has been certified six-times platinum. Other albums of DMX are, And Then There Was X (1999), The Great Depression (2001), Grand Champ (2003), Year of the Dog… Again (2006) and most recent one Undisputed (2012).
His success in music made him get offers to feature in films, and as of today, his films have grossed over $269 Million Worldwide. Some of his latest films and television shows where he has appeared are Top Five 2014, King Dog 2013, Black Ink Crew 2017, and many others.
DMX has received quite a number of nominations and has only won two awards, thus 2 American Music Awards in the category of Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist.
Net Worth & Salary of DMX
DMX’s net worth is at -$10 million, and please don’t confuse its negative ten million dollars with being more specific. The real question is what happened to DMX’s net worth considering the man has sold more than 86 million copies, and his films have grossed more than $260 million.
That question I can’t answer but to take some wild guess the lavish lifestyle rappers engage in and considering he had more than 15 women that’s where his net worth fortunes drained. We came up with a negative figure since the rapper has filed on numerous occasions, bankruptcy, and has been sued multiple times for failing to pay child support and even charged with tax evasion.
DMX net worth value, which reads a negative value, should serve as a warning to those who squander their wealth and live large, forgetting tomorrow it’s another day. All we can say is we wish him the best in his fraud case.
