The Family Values tour began in Pittsburgh on Tuesday (Sept. 21) without
top-selling rapper DMX, who dropped off the tour without giving
a reason, according to tour spokesperson Amanda Cagan. Rappers Ja
Rule, Mobb Deep and hip-hop veterans Run-D.M.C. are
replacing him, each playing select dates, according to Cagan. The tour
is headlined by thrash-rap band Limp Bizkit and also features
rappers Method Man and Redman, rock band Filter,
and techno duo the Crystal Method.
