West Coast rapper Game has vouched for incarcerated emcee DMX and said he will continue to stand by the artist’s side in light of his recent troubles.
Writing via Twitter, the Black Wall Street leader said his LAX collaborator still has 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 earlier this month.
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 recently 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)
Producer Dame Grease recently said the rapper has not been using drugs to his knowledge.
“They got him on some super duper strict probation. You gotta report almost every day, so I think he missed like three or something,” said Dame. “Of course, the main thing is getting him healthy. But he’s been clean. He knows he can’t use drugs ’cause he’ll go to f*ckin’ jail. I don’t know what the exact terms [of the violation] are, but as far as any dirty urine, I’m not aware of that and I know he’s been clean.” (VIBE)
