Fellow New York rapper N.O.R.E. has already welcomed X back.
"Welcome home dmx!!!!," he tweeted Friday morning.
"Just got off phone wit dmx 7am and he was hyped as a mother f*cker real n*ggas relate welcome home brother." (N.O.R.E.'s Twitter)
X was released from a Los Angeles jail sometime yesterday.
DMX has just been released from an L.A. jail ... after serving 18 days of a 90-day sentence stemming from a reckless driving conviction in 2002. Before X began his sentence, the rapper said he was dedicated to taking "steps toward regaining everything I've lost. FYI -- Lindsay Lohan also had a 90-day sentence ... but she got out in 14 days. (TMZ)
Details on X's decision to turn himself over to authorities landed online last month.
DMX turned himself in to the Los Angeles Metropolitan Courthouse on Monday afternoon (July 26) at about 2:30 p.m. to begin serving a 90-day sentence stemming from a 2002 reckless driving charge, according to his attorney. X was arrested for DUI way back in '02, but reached a plea deal for a lesser charge of reckless driving, the rapper's lawyer, Aja Southern, told MTV News. Southern alleged that a series of events, including X having to serve time in an Arizona jail on an unrelated charge, had caused her client to postpone his L.A. sentence. (MTV)
