DMX’s Most Iconic Hollywood Roles 

Cradle 2 The Grave 1280x720

DMX was an iconic artist who carved out his own path in Hip-Hop but what some may forget is he was a talented and respected actor. Here’s some of his most prolific roles:

Belly

DMX made his feature film acting debut in the 1998 cult classic film Belly, starring as Tommy “Buns” Bundy in the Hype Williams-directed picture. He starred alongside fellow rap icon Nas, TLC’s Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Method Man. DMX’s character was a drug dealer who sought deeper into the lifestyle of criminality but found himself along the way.

Romeo Must Die

In Romeo Must Die, DMX starred as nightclub owner Silk alongside the late princess of R&B and leading lady, Aaliyah and action super star Jet Li, which was a modern reimagining of Romeo and Juliet. Here, SPOILER ALERT: DMX meets his fatal demise towards the end of the film. DMX also lended to the film’s soundtrack, most notably to commercial success, his song with Aaliyah, “Back In One Piece.”

Cradle 2 Da Grave

Here DMX, teamed back up with Jet Li and starred alongside a younger Gabrielle Union, in the 2003 action film Cradle 2 Da Grave. Starring as Anthony Fait, a master jewel thief whose daughter is kidnapped by a rival criminal, DMX showed he was a box office draw after the film debuted at number one at the U.S. box office. Wow.

Exit Wounds

In action film Exit Wounds, DMX, joined forces with another action star Steven Seagal, back when Seagal, was tolerable to watch on screen, real life or otherwise, in the 2001 film, where he stars as a local drug dealer Latrell Walker. The film also killed at the box office debuting at number one, and grossing $80M at the international box office.

DMX was a movie star and he will be missed.

“I’m definitely ready to let it go. I knew that I wanted to end it after five seasons,” she said. “And I feel like I’m really proud of this season that we’re shooting now. It’s so much fun, and it’s made me appreciate the show in a different way.” It’s worth noting that Rae, first got her break after viral success of her hit web series Awkward Black Girl. She was surprised when bringing her sensibilities to mainstream media.

“I was complaining a lot about, like, what I wasn’t seeing on TV. And, you know, this was creating a character and a world to be like, if I can do it, and I know mainstream TV can do it,” she said. “And so I was even surprised after the first episode, then I was like, ‘Oh God, I gotta write more and catch up.’”

SOURCE SPORTS: Lance Stephenson Looking To Get Back In The NBA This Season 

Screen Shot 2021 04 09 at 8.15.10 PM

Lance Stephenson aka “born ready” is looking to get back into the NBA. According to Miami Herald reporter Barry Jackson, Miami Heat recently became aware that veteran swingman Lance Stephenson is looking to get back into the league. The Heat had been looking to fill a vacant roster spot, which ultimately went to big man Dewayne Dedmon.

Stephenson is reportedly shooting 500 three-pointers a day and is making about 85 percent of them. Associates also said that he has matured after being teammates with players like LeBron James and Rajon Rondo on the Los Angeles Lakers.

Stephenson is still young enough and talented enough to contribute in the league. He has been out of the league since his stint with the Lakers in the 2018-19 season. If the Heat doesn’t sign Stephenson, it would be great to see him sign with his hometown Brooklyn Nets.
