BREAKING NEWS BRIEF
Earl Simmons, the actor and rapper known as DMX, passed away yesterday in the hospital after several days on life support. About a week ago, he’d had a heart attack at home. He was 50 years old.
“Earl was a warrior who fought till the very end,” his family wrote in a statement. “He loved his family with all of his heart and we cherish the times we spent with him.”
The actor Chris Redd said on twitter: “My childhood and love for music would not have been the same without this man. DMX was easily my favorite artist growing up. I had every album, every ruff Ryder song, followed any artist he endorsed. Man… RIP the dog. There will never be another like him.”

The tension in Northern Ireland continues to rise as rioters continue to clash with police and leave a trail of destruction across Belfast.
Protestors took to the streets to riot last week after tensions between the Protestant and Catholic communities reached a boiling point. The city has been in turmoil ever since.
