DMX to Party (Up In Church)

3/2/2010 2:04 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

DMX is putting on a "gospel rap extravaganza" at a high school next weekend ... provided he doesn't get arrested in the next four days.


TMZ has learned the oft-incarcerated rapper, real name Earl Simmons, agreed to perform at the Morning Star Sanctified Church for a fundraiser this Saturday -- and he's doing it for free.

According to Pastor Barbara King, DMX and his family have been members of the congregation for eight months now and he really wanted to help raise money for repairs.

We're told the school holding the event is amping up security because they're unsure of what kind of crowd the convicted felon will draw. Tickets are going from $35-$40 a pop.

FYI -- We're also told DMX doesn't swear anymore ... so we have absolutely no idea what he's going to perform.

UPDATE: DMX tells TMZ, "This is an opportunity for me to use my gifts to benefit a good cause. My music offers hope! God has been good to me!"

This is a joke. A convicted felon on assualt, who uses drugs, promotes sex like it is the 60's, curses like a sailor who isn't popeye, and has more history and future issues with breaking the 10 commandments to promote a gosspel rap show must be trying to make a joke. He has a church? OMG...

I bet it'll be something like this... yo! where my dogs at? woof, woof, woof, this is DMX I'm hard headed you get it. Buying do, is harder then slapping a ho. Even though I always get arrested, no n***as up in here get molested. Yo preacher, are you a sex teacher? if you are, Im'a get my dogs up on you cause I'm DMX. Or something like that.

Doesn't look like much of a church either...they can't even read the Bible & see that women are not to be pastors.

A man can't do anything good without you freaks trying to find something bad in it. As far as I know, only GOD can who made you people God? Oh, yourselves...Gotcha!! You must think your boo-boo don't stink and you've never done anything wrong.

Take a look in the mirror next time you want to ridicule and be so judgmental. The man is trying to raise funds for his church. Give him a BREAK!!! When's the last time you people did anything of substance for YOUR church, if you even belong to one!!

Keep doing your job, Haters!!! Keep hating on someone you don't even know and know nothing about except what you read in your daily biased news (TMZ). What a joke!!!
