DMX Home Early Next Week; Reps Say Drug Reports Exaggerated
Reps for incarcerated rapper DMX have come forward to dispute recent allegations that have surfaced regarding his most recent stint behind bars.
A representative for the rapper told AllHipHop.com that the reports of his sneaking drugs into prison were exaggerated, and that most of the infractions took place months ago, one as far back as January.
The rep said that the information is now just hitting the press, because the rapper was transferred from one jail, to another, where officials reached guilty verdicts on several minor infractions.
The rapper was supposed to be released today (July 13th), but his release date has been pushed back to early next week as he serves the extra days and is processed for release.
“DMX never snuck anything into the prison,” a rep for the rapper told AllHipHop.com. “As far as him smoking in jail, there is an area where inmates are allowed to smoke. A guard felt that DMX was smoking outside of a designated lined area in the smoking court and started harassing him, which resulted in the charge.”
The news is just hitting the Internet, because prison officials issued verdicts on several of DMX's previous infractions, on July 5th, 2011.
“DMX is looking forward to being released from prison and resuming his career,” DMX's rep told AllHipHop.com. “We are in the early process of helping ex-rebuild his career in staying on the right track this time.”
According to reps for DMX, the rapper is planning on performing at several shows shortly after he is released from prison, and gets his personal business in order.
Barret Marson, Arizona Department of Correction spokesman confirmed DMX's release date next week.
