Rapper/Actor Earl “DMX” Simmons is a rapper and actor who captivated hip hop fans in the late '90s. He remains the only artist to release two No. 1 albums in the same calendar year: It’s Dark & Hell Is Hot and Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood. His stage charisma translated to big-screen success with well-received performances in Belly, Romeo Must Die, Exit Wounds and other films. Outside of his work, he has been arrested multiple times—weapons charges, drug possession, driving infractions—and served time in jail repeatedly. But in 2011, he was released and one of his first major performances was at the BET Hip Hop Awards that year. He also appeared on VH1’s reality series, Couple’s Therapy, in 2012 and  is working on a new album, Undisputed.
