DMX has been released from a prison in Arizona after serving seven months for violating his probation. The rapper was incarcerated for the sixth time in the state of Arizona for drinking alcohol during a concert in Scottsdale last year.
DMX’s release was delayed by one week due to failing to submit to a drug test. He was cited for rules infractions five other times during this stint behind bars.
Nakai Walker, DMX’s manager, told Reuters that upon his release, the rapper vowed to never return to prison. Now that he’s free, DMX will resume work on a new album at a recording studio in Arizona.
