Earl "DMX" Simmons recently spoke on his 90-day prison sentence in Arizona's Marciopa County Jail and said he must still wait another two months before being able to reunite with his dogs.
Interviewed on the street, X also revealed his personal issues with Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
"Stripes and pink, pink underwear, pink socks and slippers," X said about his experience in the Arizona prison earlier this year. "Stay the f*ck outta Arizona...I can't have dogs for two more months, I'm on probation. I'm on probation, I got two more months to go then I can have my dogs back. [The Michael Vick dog situation] kinda linked to my situation. The sheriff -- went and got Michael Vick then came and got my dogs. I wasn't even fighting with my dogs, I love my dogs. But you know, it happens. And just for the record, f*ck Sherrif Joe." (TMZ)
X caught heat from behind bars earlier this year after allegedly making verbal threats to corrections officers.
He was moved from Tent City to a solitary cell, where he will spend 23 hours a day, following a verbal altercation with Maricopa County Sheriff's detention officers on Sunday (February 8). The rapper will likely remain for the next month, said Lt. Brian Lee, a sheriff's spokesman.
