DMX is getting released from Gilmer Federal Correctional Institution today at 9a.m.!
The rapper’s longtime attorney, Murray Richman says, “He’s coming home,” Richman said. “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. He’s terrific. He’s been terrific.”
Last March, the OG was sentenced to a year in prison for tax fraud. He turned himself in July of 2017, posted the $500k bail, and was allowed to go on house arrest. To his dismay, he submitted a dirty drug test, and the judge took him off house arrest, and ordered him to go to rehab, under the condition that he needed to wear an ankle bracelet.
DMX started his sentence just last January, so he’s officially been locked up for a year.
The “X Gon’ Give It To Ya” rapper got lucky his release date landed on a Sunday, for his date was rescheduled to be let go TODAY instead!
DMX will be under supervised release for a total of 3 years, and MUST pay $2.3 million in restitution to the IRS. At least for now, he’s doing the most to stay out of trouble!
