Rapper DMX Sued For $630,000 Over Failed Comeback Tour


     Rapper DMX is being sued for $630,000 by a booking agency which claims X's legal problems destroyed a lucrative international comeback tour
     According to TMZ ,the booking agency called Heavy rotation f filed the lawsuit in New York, claiming it struck an exclusive year-long deal with DMX in 2011 to book the rapper's concerts  anywhere on the planet,but DMX was plagued with legal problems from the start a traffic violation in August, and two nasty child support disputes which led to a lien on the rapper's passport, preventing him from performing overseas.

    Heavy Rotation tried to fix the legal issues spending  nearly a $100,000 to cover bail, child support, and a slew of other legal bills hoping it would clear the way for the tour, a task that included lifting the lien on X's passport. 
    But HR claims its efforts were in vain because DMX continued to cause problems, hiring outside management that tried to book DMX on shows within the United States  violating X's agreement with HR. On top of that, X couldn't resolve his passport issues and all concerts had to be canceled.  
     X's manager Jason tells a different story  claiming DMX chose to severe all ties with HR after it put the rapper at risk with some unsavory business practices. Still, HR claims it lost $749,285 on the deal gone bad and it wants the money back.
