DMX Cries Tears of Joy After Getting 1 Year Behind Bars




DMX, the 47-year-old rapper whose real name is Earl Simmons, teared up as his lawyers played his 1998 track “Slippin,’”during his court sentencing. The lawyers plan worked as DMX will only face 1 year behind bars in his tax fraud. The judge went against the suggested 5 years behind bars saying DMX is  “a good man” who is “his own worst enemy” but is requiring that DMX pay back $2.3 million in restitution.


DMX will need to make some sound business moves in order to pay back those taxes and take care of his 15 children.
