      Despite his continuous legal problems and the quick coming and going of his last album, Hollywood is still calling on DMX to star in its films. The Dark Man just finished up Marble City, an action flick where an ex-con is released from prison and makes it his mission to get revenge on the man who framed him. The film also stars Ving Rhames, Vivica Fox and Tom Sizemore. There’s no word on a release date but the film is in post-production.

      Another flick DMX released finished filming a flick called Father of Lies which also stars Vivica Fox and Clifton Powell. The low-budget film takes place in Louisiana with Fox playing the wife of a deacon (Powell) with drama bound to go down. DMX also just signed on to star in Daddy Cool, based on the Donald Goines novel where a hitman goes on a search for his runaway daughter. He also signed up for two more films, Bishop and Death Toll, due out next year. Is he giving up the rap game?

      Apparently he doesn’t have any love for the west coast. In a February interview with the Ventura County Star that recently surfaced, he said the difference between west coast hip-hop and east coast hip-hop is talent.

      “You know, there’s talented rappers everywhere, and one West Coast rapper who I like and respect is Game, because to me, he has a New York style,” X told the newspaper. “But I don’t like a lot of West Coast rappers. West Coast rap is too laid back, too focused on marijuana with all the blunts and lowriders. There’s nothing honest. There’s no trouble in it, you know? There’s no hardship in it. Everyone in L.A. that raps has a lowrider and a fat blunt. Back here in New York, we’re still walkin’ and still smokin’ dirt, you know? There’s no hardship in their rap, there’s nothin’ to make you say, ‘I can relate to that.’”
