Rapper DMX was hit with a 14-count charge of tax evasion Monday, and after posting bail for the $1.7 million tax offense, the former Ruff Ryder front man made quite the statement when asked about his pending money fiasco.
Standing outside of a Manhattan courthouse, with his crew and lawyers standing by his side, the rapper spit a random freestyle about his lawyer helping him get off the hook, for now, for the giant tax bill.
When asked to “do a song” about his release by a reporter, in the short clip, DMX raps,
“We don’t worry with Murray, he get you outta jail in a hurry. When the government trying to bury you, you good-early!”
If convicted on all 14 counts, the 46-year-old rapper, real name Earl Simmons, could face up to 44 years in prison.
