DMX By The Numbers – The Rap Sheet Edition

Earlier this week, DMX was sentenced to 90 days in jail for a reckless driving offence. He was also recently arrested for a 2007 incident in which the remains of three dogs were found at the rapper’s home. This was the latest in a long string of arrests that Dark Man X has faced since he was young, as he’s served time in jail on numerous occasions. Honestly, X and jail have become so synonymous that we almost lost count. Don’t worry, though, we got ya covered as we took a detailed look back on the Yonkers MC’s career—the ups and downs. So, here’s DMX, by the numbers.
