DMX to be released today after spending a year behind bars


Speaking on how DMX was fairing, lawyer Murray Richman said:

“He’s coming home tomorrow,” and is poised to leave at 9 a.m.

“I spoke to him; he’s very happy”.

“He’s looking forward to being home. He’s never been hotter than now — people have been seeking him out all over.”

Murray further stated that DMX has been terrific without having any problems which is quite unusual as celebrities easily become targets in prison.

The rapper pleaded guilty to tax fraud in November 2017 after he evaded the payment of income taxes between 2010 and 2016. DMX lived of cash during that period.

“In total, during that time period, Simmons engaged in a scheme to conceal millions of dollars of income from the IRS and to avoid paying $1.7 million of tax liabilities,” prosecutors said.

Report has it that during the rapper’s trial he said:

“I never went to the level of tax evasion where I’d sit down and plot … like a criminal in a comic book.”

Though his release date states January 27, federal prisoners often get released earlier if their scheduled date falls on a weekend.
