DMX, of “X Gon Give it to Ya,” and “Where The Hood At?” fame will apparently be spending his birthday in jail. DMX was sentenced to a year in prison for tax fraud in March. The judge who sentenced him played the rapper’s famous 1998 song “Slippin’” at DMX’s request before sentencing him.
DMX began serving his sentence last January, which should mean his release is coming up sometime around the new year. However, to our knowledge, the famous late 90’s and early 2000’s rapper is still incarcerated on his 48th birthday.
The good news (or bad?) for DMX is that he’s no stranger to these circumstances. According to his attorney, he’s been arrested over 30 times.
