I've got a whole city to hold down

That's keeping it real

Thieves, one of them purported to be the brother of thug MC DMX, fled with more than $8,000 in cash paid for tickets to a planned DMX show in the state capital on Saturday. Needless to say, the concert never happened. The State Journal Register has the Keystone Kops-worthy details.

No scheduled tour dates are listed on the DMX site at defjam.com. (Oddly, the site also neglects to mention his December arrest for driving 104 MPH in a 65 zone. On a suspended license. In an unregistered vehicle.)

(It does, however, say that DMX is "working on a new Saturday Morning Cartoon called 'Boomer' named after his beloved pitbull that is tattooed on his back" and will soon be seen in a Broadway production of "Cain & Abel.")

Don't know why Springfieldmuzik hasn't picked up on this one yet.
