DMX was denied bond in an Arizona court Thursday morning and will remain in jail until at least December 16, when the next hearing in his probation-violation case will be held.

The MC was arrested on multiple charges last month, including probation violation, failure to submit to drug testing and several drug charges. He was three weeks away from finishing an 18-month substance-abuse program, and later said that a sip of alcohol at one of his concerts set off a string of events that landed him back in jail.

"And I realize I shouldn't have done it," he told Fox10 in Phoenix. "I wasn't done with the program. They let me out. I should have protected myself better."

He has been arrested six times in Arizona's Maricopa County, where he lives, in the past decade.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
