Less than 24 hours since his release from a 90 day prison stint, DMX reportedly kicked off an 11-date nationwide tour.
The rapper's multi-city appearance tour reportedly began Thursday, May 14 in Arizona.
His touring schedule will be later this fall; however he will be making appearances at certain concerts and special events to let his fans know that the DOG is Back! Dates include: Phoenix (May 14-15), Las Vegas (May 16-17), Los Angeles (May 21-22), Albuquerque (May 23), Denver (May 24), Atlanta (May 29), Houston (May 30) and Dallas (May 31). (Hip Hop Press)
In addition to shows, the rapper is reportedly working on his new album.
The multi-Platinum recording artist DMX will celebrate the new beginning in his career by finishing up his album working with Swizz Beats and other well known producers. He is also in the process of reading scripts for several movie roles and major television shows. (Press Release)
X's attorney Glen Allen recently confirmed the rapper's return home from Maricopa County Jail after putting up a $10,000 bond.
"He's extremely happy that he's home," Allen said. "We look forward to being able to handle his case with him out of custody." (Associated Press)
X was initially given a 90 day sentence in January 2009.
Commissioner Phemonia Miller sentenced the rapper last January, whose name is Earl Simmons to 90 days in jail with no credit for time he has already served. Miller said, "I'm not sentencing DMX today, I'm sentencing Earl Simmons. I don't know DMX. Mr. Simmons, it's time to do something different. What you have been doing is not working." (AZCentral)
