DMX Could Go Back to Jail for Violating Bail Conditions

Rapper DMX ordered confined to home on tax fraud charges

Federal Judge Jed Rakoff (RAY'-kahf) also said Friday that the rapper must wear an electronic bracelet.

DMX caught the ire of a federal judge during his hearing on tax evasion charges in NY on Friday (Aug. 11). The "Party Up" rhymer also tested twice for marijuana and opiates in his system as well.

"A very strong argument could be made for keeping him in jail", Rakoff said, but he added that judicial authorities are sometimes too quick in the United States to incarcerate people before trial.


DMX's lawyer demurred and said the drug tests weren't telling the whole story. Despite looking down the barrel of those rather serious accusations, Page Six reports that DMX (real name Earl Simmons) violated the terms of his bail when he visited St. Louis a few weeks ago without permission from the court. "Just being in there and being able to walk out". DMX could be headed back to jail soon, but whatever time he faces would pale in comparison to the 44-year stint he'd deal with if convicted on all 14 counts of tax evasion. He is now out on $500,000 bond, and has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The "X Gon Give It to Ya" rapper is in even more trouble.
