Dmx 'Sick' Of Prison Life

Subscribe to DMX alerts

Embattled rapper DMX regrets violating his probation and has vowed to overcome his latest troubles to get his career back on track.
The hip-hop star, real name Earl Simmons, faces another eight months behind bars after he was arrested in Phoenix, Arizona on Thursday (18Nov10) for allegedly breaking the terms of his parole.
He is currently being held without bail at Lower Buckeye Jail in Mariciopa County and will go before a judge this week (begs22Nov10) to answer claims he used cocaine, drove on a suspended licence and failed to check in with his probation officer.
DMX regrets gaining permission to leave a rehabilitation programme early so he could perform at a recent gig - because drinking liquor at the show sent him on a downward spiral.
He tells the Fox 10 News station, "I shouldn't have done it. I wasn't done with the programme. They let me out to do the show. I should have protected myself better."
But DMX, who has been in and out of prison all year (10), is determined to stay on the right side of the law once he deals with the latest incident - because he's "sick" of prison life and is dreading spending his upcoming 40th birthday (18Dec10) incarcerated.
He says, "(I'm) sick, sick, a birthday coming up, you know. I've done everything they have asked me to do. Completed programs, paid fines, community service, I did all that.
"It's rare that I get fair treatment... It's love or hate. I'm gonna get through this."
And he's grateful for the unwavering support he's received from fans as he continues his battle for sobriety: "Thank you for the support and love, I won't let you down."
