DMX has been sentenced to one year in prison over tax fraud.
New York rapper DMX, real name Earl Simmons, will serve one year in jail and three years of supervised release.
Simmons was initially arrested in July 2017 and faced 14 charges of tax fraud, after allegedly taking part in a “multi-year scheme.” The rapper pled guilty to one count which prevented him from facing up to forty years in prison. His lawyer, Murray Richman, played his video ‘Slippin’ in order to show the judge the rappers trials and tribulations in life.
