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.

Song Stories


Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
