DMX Promises to Whoop Up on George Zimmerman (Up in Here, Up in Here)

dmx zimmermanAs we have learned in the media, George Zimmerman wants to be famous. He goes all Wild Wild West on an 18-year-old boy with a hoodie. Then, he gets busted for having a leadfoot in Florida. Later, he beats his wife. It’s easy to tell how classy this guy is.

Over the weekend, George Zimmerman, the man who shot unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, registered the website, which includes a PayPal link for donations to his defense and living expenses.

In addition to the Paypal link, Zimmerman says in a statement that he has “been forced to leave my home, my school, my employer, my family and ultimately, my entire life,” as a result of the February 26 shooting.
