Dmx: 'I'm Changing My Name'
Rapper DMX is planning to change his name because he is concerned with its spiritual implications. DM stands for Dark Man, and the hip-hop star - real name EARL SIMMONS - fears he may be attracting bad vibes with the somber title. He says, "I think I am going to have to change that soon for spiritual reasons. "It's just the whole 'Dark Man' thing. If you look at it, from a spiritual point of view, the Bible teaches us we can speak things into existence. "And Dark Man may not be the best name for me."
