DMX's Release From Jail Delayed

Some people never learn. Rapper DMX will spend an extra week or even an extra month in an Arizona state prison for failing a drug test. DMX - real name: Earl Simmons- was sentenced to a year in December after his probation was revoked for failing to submit to drug testing and driving on a suspended license. He was credited with 117 days he had already spent behind bars.
The Associated Press reports that Arizona Department of Corrections spokesman Barrett Marson confirmed DMX. 40, was due to be released from a prison in Yuma on Wednesday. His new release date is now supposed to be later this month; some reports indicated July 19th would be his new release date but even that is in question.
Prison records show he's also been caught smoking twice and once with drugs since January. He's been making 20 cents an hour as a porter. 20 cents an hour? That's a long way from It's Dark and Hell Is Hot! It's also a shame that he's not super toeing the line so he can see an early release.
Are you a fan of DMX and his early '00s awesomeness?
