Rapper DMX Sentenced to Prison for Unpaid Child Support

Rapper DMX has been sentenced to six months in prison for not paying $400,000 in child support.

According to a report by the Guardian, the “X Gon’ Give It to Ya” rapper was arrested on June 26 before a scheduled performance in New York  for “issues outstanding,” including the child support payments, a robbery complaint in New Jersey and a warrant for bail jumping.

DMX, born Earl Simmons, was moved to the Erie County holding center in Buffalo on Tuesday, according to the Erie County sheriff’s office. This prison stint will not be the rapper’s first; he’s been arrested before for counts of drug possession, animal cruelty, parole violation and driving under the influence.

Known for his distinctly gravelly voice, DMX recently made a cameo in Chris Rock’s film “Top Five.”
