MANHATTAN, NY – DMX has notoriously struggled with substance abuse issues in the past. Earlier this month, X tested positive for drugs, which violated his probation. Consequently, he was put on house arrest.
As part of a new deal, the New York native was reportedly let off house arrest, but only so he can enter a drug rehab program. A judge agreed to let the veteran rapper enter an inpatient treatment program for substance abuse, which will allow him to leave his home without an ankle monitor.
According to the court documents obtained by TMZ, all other bail conditions will remain intact while X is out on bond for his federal tax evasion case. He’ll still need permission to travel out of New York state.
Murray Richman, X’s attorney, said the “Party Up” rapper’s drug usage had become increasingly difficult to manage.
X was initially arrested in July on 14 counts of federal tax evasion. If convicted, he could face up to 44 years in prison.
