Music mogul Irv Gotti wants to see Dark Man X free again. The hip-hop executive has rallied up support for DMX with a rare throwback pic.

Gotti hit up Instagram Monday (November 12) with a shot of himself, X and hip-hop icon JAY-Z.

A few weeks ago, The LOX’s Jadakiss shared his support for X.

The same week, X couldn’t convince a judge to let him skip out on a jail bid.

Hip-hop icon DMX blared one of his songs for a federal judge Wednesday — before being sentenced to a year in the slammer for evading $1.7 million in taxes. The 47-year-old rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, teared up as his lawyers played his 1998 track “Slippin,’” which talks about his “drama with my Mama” and overall feelings of helplessness. And the beats may have moved something inside Manhattan federal Judge Jed Rakoff, who rejected the government’s request for five years in federal lockup, calling Simmons “a good man” who is “his own worst enemy.” (Page Six)
