Guess who’s coming home? According to producer Dame Grease, DMX will be released from jail tomorrow after violating his probation back in March. Let’s hope that Dark Man X can get his life together, and drop something decent for his loyal fans. First off, he’s got to kick that habit of his. (Y2K Daily)
Writing via Twitter last March, rapper Game said his LAX collaborator still had his support.
“This my only tweet for 2day” Game wrote Tuesday (March 23) afternoon. “DMX is MY N!GGA & nobody or NO MEDIA or NO N!GGA nor B!TCH can ever change that !!! GO listen to “Slippin” !!!” (Game’s Twitter)
The rapper was sentenced to six months behind bars after violating the terms of his probation in March.
DMX was just sentenced to six months in jail for violating his probation — but rehab could save him from doing hard time. DMX admitted to five separate probation violations — the result of using illegal drugs. During the hearing, a rep from the Pasadena Recovery Center gave the judge a letter from Dr. Drew Pinsky, asking permission to treat X at his facility … in lieu of jail. The judge seemed open to sending X to the PRC. (TMZ)
X’s manager Nakia Walker previously spoke on her client’s situation.
“Of course it is unfortunate and painful to see Earl incarcerated, as there are a lot of rumors and lies surfacing regarding the details of his personal and professional state,” Walker said in an interview. “However, thank God for a great team–family, friends, pastors and doctors. Collectively, I am excited to say that X’s team is putting forth every effort to ensure the success of Earl’s health and career. We appreciate the support of his fans. Please stay prayerful, as X will return.” (XXL Mag)
