The rapper was only expected to serve 90 days in jail after being convicted of drug possession, animal cruelty and theft, plus an additional 18 months of supervised probation. However, DMX may be charged with felony aggravated assault after reportedly attacking an Arizona Sheriff's detention officer while in lockdown. If charged and convicted, DMX can forget about his 90-day sentence and 18 months of supervised probation: The felony carries an eight-year sentence.

"If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
