NEW YORK – Good news for rapper DMX. After spending a year in the cell, the American is released Friday. DMX, real name Earl Simmons, had to sit for a year because of tax fraud. He had hidden millions of income.
According to the lawyer of DMX, his client is very happy that his time behind the bars is over. “He is looking forward to going home,” says Counsel for Vulture, asking whether DMX had problems due to his familiarity during his stay in prison, and the lawyer replied that the rapper is “great” and “great did”.
In his conviction last year, the 48-year-old rapper took responsibility for his actions. “I am too old for the things that I have done, I have been stupid,” he said in court. Simmons will remain under supervision for the next three years.
