DMX Back to Jail for Failing Drug Tests

DMX sent to prison after positive drug test

Are you surprised DMX is in trouble with the law once again or did you expect it?

Rakoff said the rapper was found with opiates, cocaine, and oxycodone in his system. Back in August 2017, the site reported that DMX had entered a rehab program while he was out on bail for tax evasion.

The rapper is now awaiting sentencing on a tax evasion charge.

The rapper's attorney Murray Richman claims his client took drugs in an attempt to cope with his child's illness. Page Six reports that Richman told the court that DMX had been "doing well" until his 1-year-old son was hospitalized earlier in the month after falling sick with a 104-degree fever.

Theresa May to meet Donald Trump in Davos
Trump is a hugely controversial figure in Britain, where he recently caused an uproar by retweeting the anti-Muslim videos of the leader of a far-right group.

TMZ notes that U.S. Attorney Spokesman Nicholas Biase says prosecutors pointed to the video TMZ got of DMX last week at the aforementioned bar as evidence against him. Witnesses told the celeb news site that the rapper had been drinking and had bought people shots, despite the fact that alcohol was listed as off limits in the terms of his parole.

Posts on social media say that his Friday appearance at DC's Howard Theatre was cancelled two hours after its scheduled start, and that he showed up at midnight Saturday for a scheduled 8 p.m. show at Philly's Theatre of the Living Arts, then "only performed for about 45 minutes".

DMX pleaded not guilty to the charges, which would have landed him a maximum of 44 years behind bars if convicted on all counts.
