Man I was really pulling for DMX, it’s sad that he cannot escape his demons of drug use. He was at the top of the rap world, and was making major strides in Hollywood. Right now he just needs to concentrate on getting better and forget entertainment until he has fully conquered his drug use.

PHOENIX – He was sentenced to a year in jail for violating his probation, and now rapper DMX is staying in a mental health unit.
Earl Simmons was transferred to an Arizona State Prison Complex facility called Alhambra near 25th Street and Van Buren. He was admitted on Dec. 20.
He is not allowed to have visitors for 30 days.
Earlier this month, when a judge sentenced Earl Simmons to jail, she said she believes he has an undiagnosed mental condition like bipolar disorder.
Simmons was arrested on November 18 on a felony charge of violating probation, including failing to check in with his probation officer. DMX was on parole after an assault conviction.
Court documents allege that he violated probation by using cocaine and OxyContin without a prescription, failing to submit to drug testing, driving on a suspended license, and failing to participate in counseling programs.
