DMX is not having a great week. After just being arrested last week, DMX filed for bankruptcy on Monday, July 29th. According to reports from The Wall Street Journal, the man known as Earl Simmons filed documents stating that he had about $50,000 worth of assets while having debt between $1 and $10 million. DMX justified filing for Chapter 11 by saying it would enable him to reorganize his financial affairs. A lot of the debt DMX is in comes from back child support. he owes a little over a million dollars in child support. Another major part of the debt comes from X leasing cars. He owes $20,000 in car payments, which is crazy for someone who hasn’t had a legit license in a long time.
This is what DMX’s publicist had to say about the ordeal:
“DMX’s financial strains have been inhibiting his career for several years. Poor financial management by prior representation have caused him to be ineligible to retain a passport. The purpose of this bankruptcy filing is for reorganization so he can perform for his fans oversees. We are currently planning a tour in Europe and Africa for the fall of 2013.”
Our hearts go out to DMX here at Supreme Fabulosity. This is a man who has sold 30 million records worldwide. His debut album alone sold 5 million copies worldwide. We pray that the man who had 5 consecutive #1 albums gets his life back on track. We have always loved DMX has a lyricist. DMX latest album Undisputed debuted at #19 on the Billboard 200 with 17,000 copies sold, as far as Jan. 2013, the album has sold 44,000 copies. We wish you the best of luck DMX!
Mashonda is back with a true R&B record that features our friend to the website, R&B powerhouse Lil Mo. For those of you who need to become reacquainted with singer Mashonda, she is the ex-wife of producer/rapper Swizz Beatz. She was also featured on the first season of Vh-1’s “Love and Hip Hop”. Mashonda also had her debut album released in Japan, and has been featured on singles by Jay-Z, and rapper Cassidy. Now, she is back at it again, after many years of delay. The first offering has been a song that she has been buzzing about on Twitter, “Mystery”. This song is a feel good mid-tempo track, and Lil Mo, and her sound extremely well together. Hopefully, we will get a visual for this song, extremely soon. Please support it on iTunes, radio, Youtube, and let us know what you think.

R&B superstar Alicia Keys has been out of the limelight ever since getting married to music producer Swizz Beatz, and having their son. She granted Essence Magazine her first interview since giving birth. In the interview Alicia Keys discusses her husband, music, and being a new mom. Her are some excerpts from the article:
Alicia tells the mag:
“Falling in love is such a force, but this is a whole other level of magic.”
On music, marriage and motherhood: “I was very closed for a long time. But I feel so open now. To feel open like this means you’ve found the center in yourself. You’re not hiding; you’re not worried about anything. Everything’s going to be just fine.”
On dedicating a song to her mom: “In the past, I’ve written mostly from my own perspective. But I just wrote a song for my next album that was inspired by a conversation I had with a man who was expressing how indebted he feels to God. He said, ‘I owe God.’ Now, what an interesting thought. And as much as I believe in God, for me that translated into how much I owe my mother for who I am. So I went home and I wrote I Owe You. It’s dedicated to her…”
Beyonce has done it again! With the impending release of her as-yet-untitled 4th studio album, she has released a new video this week. The video/song is part of a campaign that First Lady Michelle Obama has created. Michelle Obama is trying to get children to be more active, and healthier in their daily lives. The video show Beyonce dancing with students in a cafeteria setting. It is one of the most adorable videos EVER! In our opinion, the video is better than the original one. Beyonce once again shows us why she is the Queen, check it out below:
