Former Ruff Ryders leader DMX is making sure his passport gets plenty of stamps in 2014 after arriving in Bulgaria, located in southeastern Europe, to continue a world tour.
According to reports, Dark Man X is slated to hit the stage tonight (January 2) in Bulgaria.
World famous rapper DMX has arrived in Bulgaria. The star landed at the VIP terminal of Sofia Airport with a flight from Beirut, where he staged a concert for New Year's Eve celebration, the organizers of the concert in Bulgaria announced. DMX is going to stage a performance in Bulgaria tonight. The event will take place at the Hristo Botev hall in the capital city Sofia and is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. (Focus)
With his child support woe behind him and passport back in his possession, rep Domenick Nati recently told SOHH X was focused on building up his career with overseas touring.
"DMX's child support issues have been settled. A mutual agreement has been reached that has finally released his passport," Nati told SOHH. "DMX is currently in overseas and in the middle of his international tour. We are excited that DMX can now perform for his fans across the world and the team thanks everyone for their support."

Last weekend reports claimed X recently paid off the child support debt and, as a result, received his passport.
DMX just settled a HUGE $1 million child support case ... and TMZ has learned he's now in Europe trying to recoup some of that cash. TMZ broke the story ... DMX was accused of owing more than 10 years of back child support to Patricia Trejo. Because he owed so much ... X wasn't allowed to have a passport ... which meant he was prohibited from traveling to any overseas gigs. DMX's rep tells TMZ the child support case has now been settled -- he wouldn't say for how much but we're told X paid off a huge chunk. Nati, DMX's rep, says X got his passport back ... and now he's on tour in Europe ... where he's trying to score some quick coin. (TMZ)
In November, producer Swizz Beatz spoke on X making new music and going through legal drama.
"Everything is DMX for me right now," Swizz said on Wednesday (November 13) when he appeared on "RapFix Live." "It's my main focus because it's what started everything. So, if I don't focus on that, then it's just not right." Simply put, the veteran producer is responsible for the lion's share of DMX's biggest hits, including the Grammy-nominated "Party Up (Up in Here)" and "Get It on the Floor." And while Swizz is well aware of his longtime rap brother's mounting legal troubles, the focus is always on the music. "He's been going through a lot of different things but ... he's DMX! He's good; he's in good vibes," Swizz argued. "But wait until y'all hear this music though -- y'all gon' really know how he is. We working hard on that and I can't wait. I can't wait." (MTV)
