DMX Released From Prison, Faces Assault Charges In Court Next Week, Says Rep

XXLMag.com has learned that DMX has been released from Tent City Jail in Arizona.

X’s publicist Pam Pinnock told XXL that the troubled rapper was freed yesterday and is currently out on bail after serving three months behind bars for drug, theft and animal cruelty charges. Although he has served his time for his problems before entering the facility, the Yonkers MC is not out of the weeds yet in regards to the charges he picked up once in the system. Pinnock says X is scheduled for a May 19 court date stemming from an assault case on a jail officer. The rapper has publicly denied the incident.

DMX, who is currently signed to indie label Bulldog Records, is working on a new rap album with fellow Ruff Ryder Swizz Beatz. His rep tells interested parties that X is presently available for guest appearances.

Stay tuned to XXL as more details become available. – Elan Mancini

    This is good news.May God be with X.He’s a great talent,it’s dissapointing to see him go through this, however, we do bring some stuff on our selves.I never wish jail on anybody.Crime comes with time.or vice versa.

  • romil

    X needs to get home to his fam, go to church and leave the game alone. Stick to acting for a while.

  • Mutada al sader the king

    This guy at one point was the biggest hip hop star in the world 3 or 4 strait multiplatnum albums. Millions and millions of dollars made. and a truly buddign acting career. Could have been the Tupac replacement (in an acting sense), that Tyrese turned out to be.

    Its obvious that he has menatl issues and the drugs are making the problem worse. He’s gotten into so much trouble and abused his body for years but is still alive. So somone is watching out for him.

    I really dont care to hear another record from X, but I hope for the sake of his kids that he gets his life in order.

    DMX needs to come back and drop another album for real.. I mean a good album that is!

    X the game needs you. What a lot of cats don’t know is X can go through almost any hood out here in L.A. because he is real and the G’s love DMX. Check out that Road Dawgs DVD DMX in the real hood with some real G’s. Inglewood!

    Last point everyone is related to or know someone with a drug problem. So let’s not judge this man.

  • stoneyisland

    X will be back in jail within 30 days, 3 months does not kick a crack addiction…….

    that’s “bodog music” not “bulldog records.” you know, like the gambling site?

    we don’t fact check ’round this bitch?

  • BeerGangsta

    Grow Up! DMX had a lot of number 1 songs. Acting like you never had a Dollar in your pocket. That’s why big Records Companys don’t won’t to put money on the Rappers. They see them Fucking up in the long run.

    Mannn… How can you say that DMX should leave the Rap game he is ( or could be ) One of the greatest of these times (see, Damien, aint no sunshine, Lord give me a sign) all he needs to do is get his Act together. Write some Damn rap, try to stay away from that crack, And make a tight ass CD about his experiences that he’s been. facing cause hes bound to have some new material. I think he may be able to pull it off. if anything holds him back its his constant trips to prison i hope he pulls through this shit..

    “currently out on bail after serving three months behind bars for drug, theft and animal cruelty charges”

    hmmm, what a lengthy sentence for ALL that hard time he did, wow, I’m sure he learned this time… What bullshit, a rapper gets three months on charges that any other person would most definitely be sentenced for a much lengthier time span if committed, and here he get’s out on a $10,000 bond??? I hope he is convicted and found guilty of his outrageous actions while in Tent City, what he did was childish, arrogant, and shameful, and for that I HOPE he gets 8 years in FULL, maybe then it will somewhat sink in that just because you’re a rap artist, your wrong-doings are not unnoticed, nor tolerated due to your status. He should e dropped by his label as well, the crimes he committed were not justified or properly atoned for, throw his ass back in a cell and let that shit marinate a while longer! I have no remorse for him and his dumbass, especially after calling into 101.5 the day he was released, what a jackass! Hes a has been, drug addict, abuser, thief and a sad example of what money and fame can do to a person. Way to represent not only the rap industry, but the music world as a whole! Way to represent black people, and ultimately Americans!
