DMX Assaults Officer, May Face 8 More Years Behind Bars

Less than a month after being sent to solitary confinement, incarcerated rapper DMX finds himself in the hot seat once again.

Phoenix’s Fox 10 news reports that X has attacked a Sheriff’s detention officer while on lockdown in Arizona’s Tent City prison facility, and may now face felony aggravated assault charges. If authorities decide to take action, the Yonkers MC could face up to 8 years behind bars.

X was put on 23-hour-a-day lockdown on February 8th after a separate incident with Maricopa County officers.

The former Ruff Ryders front man is currently serving a 90-day sentence for drug, theft and animal cruelty charges. – Elan Mancini

    Well it’s X’s fault he’s locked up. Prisons a evil place so I wouldn’t put it past the guards to fuck with X. I’m sure he reacted. I don’t think he’s a saint but it takes two to tangle and niggas want you to mess up and catch a longer sentence out of pure hate.

    It’s a shame that he has millions and royalties and opportunities but wants to fuck around on some petty shit.

  • Tony Tone

    Has anyone that’s posted thus far ever been through some shit? Locked up? Have any of you cats ever spent a week with COs with stank ass attitudes and on power trips? Famous, or somewhat, people play towards your demons when you open yourself up. Also, people seem to have it twisted that 1 million records sold is somehow equivalent to $1 million dollars profit. Wrong. Depending on how much is invested into a project, a player can sell 3 million records and only have a quarter of that as net revenue. Point being, things ain’t always what they seem. Shit, you’d think as much work he put into bein honest to the music, some of you would at least respect that.

      Finally co-sign with somebody about this. None of these cats commentin’ on X have even seen county.

MORE THAN ONCE. HE APPARENTLY LIKES IT. HE NEEDS TO DEAL WITH IT. IT’S NOT CLUB MED

          I not a “DMX apologist” or whatever you call it, I’m just sayin’ there’s a lot of cats on here commentin’ on doin’ time and shit related to that, but they don’t know nothin’ about what goes on. There’s a lot of politics involved and it’s startin’ to get ridiculous how they keep tackin’ on extra time to these short stays he got.

  • Jamal7Mile

    Pink draws will make ANY man flip out. That Phoenix correctional facility is foul! Stop mixing red socks with the white laundry!!

  • capcobra

    arizona was the last state to acknowledge mlk holiday…that’s funny specially since they had nothing to do with the civil rights movement…first i’m thinking why would they not want to honor dr.king?…then i think about pe song “by the time i get to arizona”…then i think about all the white college girls gone wild dvds…then i think about those pink jumpsuits the prisoners have to wear…then i think that’s where they hid sammy the bull….and it all dawned on me that arizona ain’t for real niguz…..look at hot rod..lmao…hold ya head x.

  • Devon

    I hope they throw the book at this dumb fuck vick 21/2 ys for dogs this cracked out 90 days for drug theft and cruelty Vick= 2/12 yrs Dmx= 90days shit dont add up

  • 2hard2fair

    So the guards were fuckin with him,that goes with the territory.all that little bullshit he been gettin caught on over the years only added up to a 90 day sentence.if he had a good head on his shoulder and half a heart,he’d be out in a little over a month.now he gonna be in there for life,cuz the way his head is,8 years ain’t shit.leave the pipe alone kids or you will get it worse than him,at least he had some money and connects,now he ain’t got shit.x smh,this must be the signs of the times

  • A

    Come on we all know that those CO’s are up there fuckin with him b/c he’s a superstar. X needs to humble down and get out of that situation.

  • sealsaa

    Well, his career was done anyway, so I guess an 8 year bid couldn’t possibly do any more damage.

  • mannyd

    I hope he gets his shit together.

    I’ll continue to pray for Earl like I do for all of God’s creations.

    That being said…..

    I can’t speak on how fucked up the “correctional” system is, I’ve never been locked up. But I do know life is hard on it’s own, without doing things to make it harder on yourself. I also can’t speak on X from a personal level, but it appears that his situation is more than “my favorite rapper” in some trouble. Dude has some major mental instability issues. Instead of jail, the judge should’ve had the sense & compassion to get him some actual help. Jail is punishment, far from rehab.

    His hip hop career is irrelevent @ this point. By his own actions, he may possibly spend a good chunk of his life behind bars, & no rap songs should overshadow the fact that this brother is lost, almost beyond rescue. Anybody with a fucked the fuck up family knows “self-destruct” when you see it.

    On the real, he’s a legend in his own right, but he’s not a legitimate rapper & hasn’t been for years. He probably ain’t even thinking about rap, he’s most likely focused on surviving in enemy territory.

    To move to Arizona is crazy, but to be incarcerated there for stupidity, & then act more stupid, is insanity.

  • dark vanilla

    Now I’m not gonna say shit about X attacking cuz I never been to jail and I personally don’t know what the fuck he’s going through. Some stupid correctional officer could be fucking around with him. With that being said, DMX needs to get his head together.

  • $ykotic

    That man is in the hole withdrawing.

    He needs serious help. He should’ve been in a shock program or psych ward.

  • Sleepy Wonder

    Trust Me, I Bet Those C.O.’s Are Fucking With Him Big Time Day 2 Day. They’re Faggots Like That. Fuck The Police!

  • Nate

    Now I just can’t listen to the words of the “Innocent Man” remix I was bumpin last week

    “I’m an innocent man… misunderstood…
    I’m an inncoent man.. just from the hood…”

    Prayin for him yeah, but as opposed to a dude like Shyne who took the charge for Diddy, and doesn’t deserve the 8-9 years, X is acting like he WANTS this.. he keeps making his outcome worse, and worse, and worse..

  • Supreemwun

    Real Talk,
    Sheriff Joe self-proclaimed “Toughest Sheriff in the World” is a publicity fiend! So he will use this and already has to keep his name in the media!

    But you don’t want to F with him…he’ll have you wearing pink boxers and eating green bologna! For real!

  • Beast McCoy

    Maybe he likes it there? He might think pussy is highly overrated?

  • willshady

    wow……….what a idiot

  • problems

    Hip hop fans are the most unloyal fans around…One minute X was the best thing since sliced bread and now people shit on dude left and right.He’s an addict and who didn’t see the C.O’S in one of the most notoriously racist states ever fucking with him.Especially that crooked bigot warden who makes prisoners wear pink for his satisfaction.Hold your head x.That warden made sure he got his revenge for all them times you escaped scott free and it took you hollerin “x gonna give it ya” as u gave a guard the one-two…
