DMX Wants To Sell Harlem Crib

dmx_brownstone.jpgEarl Simmons, a.k.a rapper DMX, is looking to sell a Harlem brownstone on Fifth Avenue at 124th Street that he bought for $750,000 five years ago. He’s had trouble managing the property according to the New York Times, and it’s remained vacant since he bought it, leading the Times real estate writer to this rather awkward paragraph:

But his brownstone remains dark and empty, a silent and humbling witness to what can go wrong in the real estate business, even if you are a tattooed tough guy, up from the streets. Mr. Simmons exhorts his fans to “never give up, never give in, never stop believing in your dreams,” but when it comes to the house, he is putting it on the market.
