Hip-Hop Rumors: A DMX Movie Coming?

There is a little buzz on the street and that’s saying that there may be a DMX biopic on the way.

Are you interested in a movie that would talk about the Dark Man X?

I think it could be of interest to us, the people, because we have been captivated by his story from day one. The catch is, who would play DMX? I am hearing X could play himself, but also its possible an actor could. The other component I am hearing is that the movie would be a deep saga sort of film that would be based on the book on X’s life – “E.A.R.L.: The Autobiography of DMX.”

The book came out in 2003 and is still available. Here is the description:


The dark journey of a boy who became a man, the man who became an artist, and the artist who became an icon. A talent for rhyme saved his life, but the demons and sins of his past continue to haunt him.
This is the story of Earl Simmons.

I wonder how true this is and is there a market for it? Hell, the way they give life story movies to Mark Walberg…this seems to be a no-brainer. But you tell me!?

    Dudes life story is really compelling..from what he’s openly divulged he had a horrible childhood. It’d be nice to get some sort of understanding to what makes this man tick. I think honestly he’s got one of the most interesting backstories in the game.

    • Ronald Tregan

      True. Im trying to think of an artist that im genuinely more interested in their come up than X’s but nothing comes to mind so this will be good to watch. I would like an album out though and hopefully one a lot a better than his last

    • kixxxers

      Crack! Crack makes this man tick..

      • NASHEED JONES

        your ignorant you aint perfect x did crack so he didnt have to think about shit that this world has done to him you wouldnt last a day in his shoes as a child or teenager grown man even now so stop throw dirt at my man x sick of you lames trying to flame him everybody struggles for all we know as much time hes been to prison he mightve gotten raped.

      • kixxxers

        I aint perfect but I am smart enough not to do Crack! In the Distance Past X was the Sh!t… Nowadays he’s just all about the Sh!t..

        He came from writing Cold sh!t like:
        “Sold my soul to the devil
        The Price was cheap
        So Cold on this level
        twice as deep
        2:00 about to Hit the streets
        Till I sell this Rock
        I Don’t get to eat…

        (Opening Scene of Belly)

        Now he’s just a Shell of his former self all due to Drug addiction and Self Destruction.

        You are defending the undefendable!

      The movie is called “The Man Who Walked The Dog – The DJ Superior and DMX story” you can find the fan page on face book. We were all buggin because the actor sounded and acts like X. I stood there watching taking photos on my phone thinking it was DMX.

  • ebonyhud

    I would definitely see a movie about X. He is a very interesting guy. I wouldn’t want him to play his self. I like seeing actors try to portray certain people. It would also be cool to see who they cast for the RR team too

    • DarkNight

      I saw them filming 2 weeks ago in Yonkers. The movie is called “The Man Who Walked The Dog – The DJ Superior and DMX story” you can find the fan page on face book. We were all buggin because the actor sounded and acts like X. They had a video on youtube of him doing X and maaaan he is good but they made the video private a few days later.

  • gurdyghost

    I read the E.A.R.L book years ago, it was truly amazing….talk about started from the bottom

  • Jared

    Def would watch a movie on his life. Is he still built to act though?

    • DarkNight

      The rumor is true I saw them filming 2 weeks ago in Yonkers. The movie is called “The Man Who Walked The Dog – The DJ Superior and DMX story” you can find the fan page on face book.

  • hoeyuno

    • DarkNight

  • Dolladae

    This would be a chance for people who don’t know X to see where he is coming from. I would definitely watch probably hundreds of times. I hope this is a true rumour.

  • Schooly B

    F*ck this dude. He made dope music back in the day but then he started talking to interviewers and running his mouth. This is the same p*ssy that tried to make money on the memory of Trayvon Martin. The same f*ggot that felt clowning the President Of The United States, Barrack Obama, because apparently he has a funny name and said he wouldn’t be elected. The same weak n*gga that couldn’t step outside of himself long enough to build a better relationship with his son. F*ck him; burn him. Won’t get a penny from me.

    • Chrisblackusa

      Take the tapon out cha azz..sound like a vic out here..

      • Schooly B

        I sound like a vic… You see me in the real world you test that theory. Ok, pumpkin?

      • NASHEED JONES

        vice versa put the words that you said to him into x’s you wouldnt dare talk that shit to his face.

      • Schooly B

        Yeah, I would. Only fake people or people without intestinal fortitude speak one way away from someone and another in their face. Everything I said came from a place of love and genuine concern for my brother. He needs to cut the shite and do better on all levels.

    • brotha_man

      are u DMX baby mama?????

      • Schooly B

        Nah, I’m just a real man that does real man shite. I leave that nigga shite to you crumbs.

    • chippc

      Yea I started to look at X different when he dissed his own seed.

    • hoeyuno

      X is still dope!!! We all got demons..X’s are just publicized. If he can still get in the booth and kill a swizzy beat he’s all good to me..

    • NASHEED JONES

      that bitch iyanla was interfering to much in that conversation x couldnt even get a apology in before she cut him off he couldve tried harder but then again he did at least they both say he was there at birth some pops aint there at birth so idk.

  • Schooly B

    Plus the book was some 3rd grade reader shite.

  • Chrisblackusa

    Dmx and swizzy snatching bags at age 9…..aint got nothing on me and flav robbing fort knox aka the nabisco cookie warehouse at 9..had every teenager in the projects hunting us down to rob us..lol…2000 packs of oreos..2000 packs of fig newtons..we was getting grinds from teenage girls for a month for cookies..lol..

  • John Williams J-Dub

    i would watch, he may had went downhill but but he delivered some great albums, movement…smashing movies imo

    • DarkNight

      I saw them filming 2 weeks ago in Yonkers. The movie is called “The Man Who Walked The Dog – The DJ Superior and DMX story” you can find the fan page on face book. Yeah the streets been talking everyone waiting to see this movie.

  • brotha_man

    I still stand by my notion that DMX was on his way to being better than Jay-z. In my opinion he is better than s. carter

    • GQ

      Smh…

      • JerkfaceMcGee

        im smh u still stannin to the man who made takeover

      • brotha_man

        just my opinion. Reasonable doubt is better than all DMX albums. but in my lifetime was alight. Hardknock was good but was full of features. Vol. 3 was weak and full of features. its hot and hell dark, blood of my blood, the great depression, ….and then there was X all bangers to me…

        Look thru my eyes, see what, see what I see
        Do as I do, be what I be
        Walk in my shoes, hurt your feet
        Then know why I do dirt in the street

      • Dolladae

        Flesh of my Flesh > any Jay-Z album. I like Jay and all but that’s just my honest opinion

    • BulldogCG

      I understand what you mean. Its like some artist make you “feel” them and some make you “respect” them. For me, Jay and Big fit in the respect category, guys like DMX, Tupac, never the most Lyrical, but they made you “feel” them, they brought raw emotion to the game, no homo.

  • chippc

    I’m still trippin on the fact that artist I enjoyed listening to as youngsta are now old enough to have BIOPICS made about them. Tupac, BIG, DMX, NWA (soon). Damn I’m gettin old too! But on a side note, I’m gonna need a Geto Boys and a UGK movie sooner or later too.

  • kixxxers

    Wait till he dies from a drug overdose… Won’t be long sad to say..

    • NASHEED JONES

      why you gotta say shit like that who shited in your coffee this morning.

      • kixxxers

        Sorry to Slap you in the Face with a COLD dose of Reality but that’s what’s Gonna happen! Wait patiently it is inevitable…

    The movie us called “The Man Who Walked The Dog – The DJ Superior and DMX story” It is based on the book by the same title. We got to see them shooting some scenes in Yonkers and whoever the actor they have playing DMX he is good, we actually thought he was X. you can find the fan page on face book under The Man Who Walked The Dog – The DJ Superior and DMX story.

  • DarkNight

    The movie is actually called “The Man Who Walked The Dog – The DJ Superior and DMX story” it is base on the book with the same title not EARL. We got to see them shoot some scene in Yonkers 2 weeks ago. Whoever the actor is that is playing DMX is good we all thought he was X, man he moves and talks like X. You can find the fan page under the name The Man Who Walked The Dog – The DJ Superior and DMX story.

  • Raymond Helyar

    He is the reason I got into hip hop, he is one of my favorite rappers and I will always be intrigued by anything Earl will do. With that said I’d like to see this as long as it is done correctly. I don’t want to watch a movie where it just takes advantage of him but I also want to see it show his trials and tribulations, his hardships and demons. It would be an incredible story if done right and I don’t know if I’m the first to say this but Michael K. WIlliams would be the perfect actor to play him

  • carltonbj

    got the book and read it twice a flim would be great

  • David Gonz

    ZZZZZZ WAKE ME UP WHEN THERES AN E 40 MOVIE. MAYBE THEY CAN RECAST CHRIS ROCK AS DMX. HE WAS GOOD AT HITTING THAT PIPE IN NEW JACK CITY. NY -1

    The dark journey of a boy who became a man, the man who became an artist, and the artist who became an icon. They forgot the last part: The man who became a crackhead. Hey, maybe Katt Williams could play him?
