DMX Sentenced 3 Months In Jail


Another chapter in the rocky road of rapper DMX’s life has come to a close. After a string of arrests, the Dark Man was sentenced Friday to 90 days in an Arizona jail.

The sentence was handed down as a result of a myriad of convictions including theft, drug-possession and cruelty to animals.

Despite the three month sentence, X, known to the government as Earl Simmons has been sitting in the Maricopa County jail since his early December arrest in Miami for failing to appear in a Phoenix court.

Maricopa County Superior Court Commissioner Phemonia Miller told the platinum selling emcee that she was sentencing Earl Simmons, not the star the Hip Hop community grew to love.

"I don't know DMX. Mr. Simmons, it's time you do something different," she told Simmons, who is also reportedly suffering from gout. "What you have been doing is not working."

Hopefully he can get his sh*t together while he's in there and get back into music.
