DMX wants his royalty company to "Stop Being Greedy."

The Yonkers-based rapper says he's been ripped off for years by a company hired to collect his song royalties, but he's been behind bars so much that he only recently realized the problem.

The platinum-selling hip-hop artist sued Rich Kid Entertainment 1 and related companies Monday in a Manhattan court. He's seeking at least $1 million in damages.

The rapper says the companies paid him nothing while collecting royalties on some of his most popular work.

No telephone number could be found for Englewood, N.J.-based Rich Kid. Its owner didn't immediately respond to a fax sent to a possible number for him.

DMX's real name is Earl Simmons. He scored such hits as "Get At Me Dog" and "Stop Being Greedy" in the 1990s. He has repeatedly been arrested and jailed during the last decade.
