We've had to write plenty of arrest-tastic headlines about DMX here at Phoenix New Times, but despite his issues with Arizona law enforcement, X loves our state.
In a recent interview with Power 105.1 in NYC, DMX had nothing but nice things to say about AZ:
"It was just a beautiful place, man...we come from the studio one day, and we just pulled over on the highway, just watch the sunrise...it's like, yo, it's crazy. And you can carry guns! I went out there with eight felonies and I can carry a gun?! You serious? What do you mean, 'Why did I go to Arizona'?
What can we say, DMX? We love you, too. Sure, you've had a checkered past, but we're more than willing to let this whole thing be a comeback story (we're not forgiving the dog fighting thing, though) provided that new album you've been dangling out there for ever delivers on your boasts.
DMX is just the kind of character you root for (against your better judgement). It's one of the reasons we stay tuned into the DMX saga. Here are five more.
