It’s been quite the rough patch for DMX. (Sidebar: at what point does a rough patch just become life?) The Phoenix New Times reports the incarcerated rapper has been moved to a mental health unit at an Arizona State Prison Complex facility. Earlier this month, Earl Simmons was sentenced to a year in jail after pleading guilty to violating the terms of his probation. When he was sentenced, the judge said she believes he has “an undiagnosed mental condition,” possibly bi-polar disorder. Apparently, Dark Man X tried to beat up some reporter years ago who dared ask about the state of his mental health. So, I’d say the judge is probably on to something here, huh?
This is the 13th jail/prison stint for DMX. Maybe he’ll get the help he needs now.
