DMX To Remain Incarcerated Until December 16 Hearing

UPDATE #3: DMX is denied bond again, and will remain behind bars through next week.

After expressing hopes of “staying under the radar” before a show in Scottsdale, Arizona last week, DMX found himself arrested in Maricopa County for the sixth time. Fox affiliate, KSAX, reports that officers arrested DMX—real name Earl Simmons—at his home after he failed to check in with his probation officer.

“I know if I was to get caught driving without a license or something, it would be on the news instantly and I would be punished to the fullest extent of the law,” X said last week. “I say I’ve been given a lot of unfair treatment. But I’m not gonna let that dictate where I go or what I do. If I like a place, I’m gonna stay there.”

DMX had his court appearance late Thursday night, since X was already on probation for aggravated assault, it’s unclear how the latest arrest will impact him.

(November 19)

UPDATE: The New York Daily News has confirmed that DMX's probation violation last week was due to possession of Oxycontin without prescription and alleged cocaine possession. The Yonkers, New York veteran emcee had long battled addiction. He will be back in court tomorrow as a result of the violation. (November 23)

UPDATE #2: Today's hearing resulted with a judge ordering DMX to remain incarcerated until his next hearing, December 9. HipHopDX will keep you updated. (November 24)

UPDATE #3: It's been announced that DMX's hearing has been delayed to December 16. In the meantime, the rapper has been denied bond.

  • Hey

    Hey I was X's biggest fan and bought every album he ever had but it really has been down hill musically since The Great Depression b.s. in 2001. I love X's music still but I have to admit I've gotten tired of watching him kill his talent and ruin his life. It's like you won't hear any music from him anymore but you'll hear about what laws he broke and drugs he's using. It's just really really bad. I feel for him but I feel even more for his family. His wife divorced him and what about the kids now? I hope they are ok. To me, it's just sad no matter how famous or how big of star you become if you do drugs it can all come tumbling down. It's a lesson for all his fans. Don't do that shit because what ever you have (your loved ones, a good job, money in the bank, etc..) it will vanish and leave you stuck in jail and your life in ruins. I feel for X. I want the old X back pronto to set the record straight. That guy was awesome. I want the guy who killed every verse and where people would check out a song even if it wasn't X's but he was only featured to hear him kill it at the end.

      this might come as a wild idea but how about telling X to stop fucking himself over instead of blaming the ones who are just doing their jobs.

    • nasistheillest

      To the guys dissing the illuminati guy, you should actually look into it because X definitely is against them, why do you think he got so religious all of a sudden? Also, I believe Pac was an avid researcher and "killuminati" type guy and he did plenty of things with his life, so don't bash someone because their views seem radical to what Fox News has on TV for you.

    I don't doubt kicking a drug habit is hard, but clearly he's lost. The movies. Music. Gone. If he's not careful, his kids will be too. Enough of this Dark Man X alter ego bullshit. Fight for your life, or join Eric Roberts on Celebrity Rehab and call it a life.

  • kennyken

    i wish i could say give him a chance but can't say that, he's given chance after chance and it's clearly a deep rooted problem within x. he had a hard childhood as well. x needs to escape the rap game. come back after about 5 years. he needs to escape man, i truly feel for the brother after watching his documentary.

      dude he is dizzing jay-z and speaking against the illuminati then is being thrown in jail deep rooted? um DUH!! people like you dont seem to udnerstand the truth of what is going on FUCK ILLUMINATI

  • kennyken

    an addiction is very complicated, to some people who don't understand. while you think it's the drug, it's just as much as yourself, and you need to find what's in you that makes you go back to wsnting to live like that. it's complicated boss thug.

    fox news are fucking cunts. You'll NEVER, I repeat, NEVER, see faux news cover a story about a black man doing good or affecting change for the better. It's always stereotypical negativity used to mock black people and play to their conservative christians' racism. "Only black man fox love is in jail or a dead one". Look at these skunks acting like they actually give a damn about rap music. fucking cunts.

      Fox are the not the only news outlet to let him speak. Why df did u just make that up? Either way it's nothing new... fox has a well know history people need not elaborate on. Just a month ago they pulled a article reading "obama loves gangster rap" because they realized how idiotic and blatantly racial it was especially since obama mentioned countless other artists' he has on his ipod who aren't even rappers. faux news.

    As someone who has had problems with drugs in the past, I'm calling X a weak ass motherfucker. I went cold-turkey in one night after deciding that enough's enough, never looked back and been sober for 6 years.

    • hater_deluxe

      i have never read so much bullshit in my life...someone even said cigarettes arent addictive...i guess nicotine is a myth. but whatever, dmx obviously has some deep rooted issues that he alleviates with drugs. plain and simple. for all yall who aren't aware, dmx has been incarcerated for the greater part of his life, even as a child. when you have behavioral and emotional problems, that are misdiagnosed, you end up getting into trouble. they need to treat him for sickness, he is a mentally unstable drug addict.

    • the.watcher

      @Wow First up: weed is not a drug, let's get clear with that shit up front. As for me: speed, cocaine, x, acid, lsd, shrooms and meth. Now: Meth and Cocaine are addictive, some claim physically so, although I have never experienced this in 4 years of abuse. As for the other drugs - purely psychological with no physical withdraw symptoms. Cigarettes are not addictive, again, no physical symptoms, only psychological. As for being "hard on X", bullshit. How many chances this guy gonna get? I was supportive for a long time, but this dude cannot overpower HIMSELF? How many times he gonna keep fuckin up? Dude promised to go straight and a day later they bust him with Coke - that's dishonesty (to himself as well all the fans), and @WOW, my dude - don't talk about shit you don't know.

    • wow

      First off, it's to obvious that the watcher has absolutely no experience with a a real addiction. There are 2 different types of addiction, a mental addiction, and a physical addiction. Hate to tell ya, but heroine isnt the only drug that comes with a physical addiction. My guess is the only thing you've ever been addicted to is cigarettes and weed. Trust me if you do cocaine and oxycontin(which isn't anything but refined heroine), you will not be able to just shake it off like Hey I dont need those things! Faggots talk bullshit like they know something. Keep ur head up X do you get the fuck out and come back to music- we miss you.

    • G

      @ the.watcher Nicotine. It's pretty damn physical lol. But niggas who say they can't give up weed are bullshittin. There is no nicotine in weed. X is weaker and can't kick the habit as fast as some, but damn. Is it really necessary to get so angry at a man who has reached rock bottom?

    • the.watcher

      LOL at everyone calling me an asshole, let me break break something to y'all: ADDICTION ISN'T REAL, except Heroin - that shit is physical, but everything else is in you head. Anyone that can't kick that shit is just a weak pussy too scared to face his life sober. Fuck all y'all babysitting a grown man, X needs to get his life together. @Roscoe - Word up my dude!

    What is this Illuminati shit? HAHAHAHA, yes there is a group of white men that have meetings where they get together and discuss arresting DMX amidst an orgy. DMX has problems, with drugs first and foremost. We all know that. The guy is caught in the shitty cycle of the justice system. Most of us know how it works. Luckily when I have been in trouble I have had enough self control to stop using while in the spotlight. DMX needs help, but if the threat of jail can not stop you from using I don't know what can. I don't know how jail works, I have never been but I have heard that you can get drugs there. I would like to think that jail gave X some time to clean out his system and stop the cravings but could he have been getting high in jail? Dude just has problems and needs help and is not going to get it by having his freedom taken from him.
