    Rapper DMX will be out of prison again next month after serving more than six months for violating his probation in November 2010. X has endured 25 arrests, 11 felony convictions and 15 misdemeanor convictions but has said things are going to change moving forward. That's quite the rap sheet, no pun intended.

    "I realized that [change] is something that I want do this time. Like the last few times I couldn't wait to get out and go have a drink. Now, I'm in a frame of mind where I'm like 'right into the studio and get my grind on,'" the rapper told Vibe magazine from behind bars. That's good news. We hope he does straighten up and fly right and bring us more of his talents.

    Additionally, DMX is also working on his seventh album, Redemption of the Beast, for a year. "Swizz Beatz did the single. I got Sean Kingston on the Scott Storch record," said DMX. "Of course I got a little LOX on there. Keep it family tight. It's going be a few features, but nothing crazy. I got Tyrese on a couple of joints."
