DMX says he had no part in the robbery of $3,200 in cash that he was accused of over the weekend, but he does have an explanation for it.
"If things like that don't happen, then I'm not doing what I'm supposed to be doing," he told TMZ. "The harder the devil works at trying to destroy me, it's because I'm special to God. Not that I look forward to these problems, but I face them knowing that the word says, 'No weapon formed against me shall prosper.'"
X was accused, along with his bodyguards, of robbing a man at a New Jersey gas station following a concert on Saturday night.
"I have no idea what it's about," he said earlier in the video, shortly before invoking the devil and god. "I mean, it comes with the territory. People are always gonna take shots, try to accuse of things. It's not the first thing I've been accused of that I didn't do. If I'd have did it, you'd have known about it, for real."
The rapper said that his lawyers told him "there's nothing to worry about," and early this week, his lawyer, Murray Richman, denied the allegations. “Four young men approached him for a photo,” he said. “They took photos and they offered [DMX] drugs. He said no and told them to go...They had an argument and next thing you know, they are accusing him of robbery. Just nonsense.”

And X did admit that he was at a gas station -- though he insists nothing happened.
"I won't even be on the cameras, no," he said, referencing security footage at the station. "We stopped at a gas station, [but] I don't recall any incident happening."
"I make way more than that doing a show, so why would I want that type of trouble for myself?"
