DMX Earns Extra Jail Time

July 12, 2011

To say the least, DMX has not been a model inmate during his seventh month jail stint. In fact, his latest antics have earned him a little extra time, delaying his scheduled release by at least a week.

Celebrities have a way of finding trouble. Sadly, rappers are at the top of the list when it comes to getting arrested. DMX has been no exception, with gun and drug charges plaguing him for some time now.

He is currently incarcerated in the Yuma State Prison, where he has been locked up since January. According to records, he has even managed to find trouble while behind bars.

Here is the list of things he has been accused of doing while there:

Failing or refusing a drug test
Unauthorized Smoking (twice)
Being disrespectful to staff members
Being disruptive
Disorderly conduct
Possessing drugs or narcotics

The latest trouble came when authorities say he somehow managed to obtain drugs while inside the facility. The news came after they performed a search and turned up a controlled substance. The exact kind of drug is unknown at this time.

The rapper’s original release date was set for this Wednesday, but word has it that he will now stay at least another week.

Aside from allegedly violating a handful of prison rules, DMX also found time to diss Jay-Z and Drake while behind bars. Apparently X has some kind of problem with Jay-Z. While talking to a reporter from prison, he said:

“(during a show) somebody in the crowd was like ‘What’s up with Jay-Z’ and I was like ‘F–k Jay-Z’. And it ended up all over the place…”

From there, the interview is hard to understand, but it all boils down to DMX saying he just wants Jay-Z to call him so they can sort it out. Read the full quote over at MTV’s Rap Fix.

Maybe being locked up has given him some sort of rage problem. Hopefully when he gets out he can focus more on music and positivity. We’ll see…
