Rapper DMX Bags 12 Months Jail Term for Tax Fraud

Spread the love

Famous rapper DMX will be spending the next 12 months in prison for evading $1.7 million in taxes.
The famed hip-hop artist, known legally as Earl Simmons, cried at the sentencing hearing as his lawyer, Murray Richman, described his unhappy childhood on Wednesday.

In a letter to the court ahead of the proceeding, Richman had asked to play some of DMX’s songs to help U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff understand the rapper “genuinely in his voice.”

According to reporters in the room, Rakoff did allow one song—DMX’s 1998 single “Slippin’”—to be played at the hearing.

“I wasn’t following the rules. I was in a cloud,” Simmons, who pleaded guilty to tax evasion charges last year, said in court. Rakoff said that the court recognizes that Simmons “is a good man” but also “his own worst enemy.”

“DMX made millions from his chart-topping songs, concert performances and television shows. But while raking in millions from his songs, including his 2003 hit ‘X Gon’ Give it to Ya,’ DMX didn’t give any of it to the IRS. Far from it, DMX allegedly went out of his way to evade taxes, including by avoiding personal bank accounts, setting up accounts in other’s names and paying personal expenses largely in cash,” the statement said.
