DMX Explains New Jail Sentence

On Monday, troubled rapper DMX turned himself in to Los Angeles Metropolitan Court for a reckless driving charge he incurred back in 2002.

“What’s going on today is that I’m going to turn myself in,” X said in a taped interview before appearing in court. “Me and my crew, we came to the conclusion that would be best. It was something that happened years ago, a driving infraction.”

In the interview, the Yonkers emcee explained that his decision to turn himself in is a positive step towards rehabilitation.

“It’s one of the first steps in regaining everything I lost,” he continued.
Though DMX has a long history of legal troubles and drug abuse, he said that his “relationship with God” has helped him to get back on his feet.

“My relationship with God has gotten so much stronger,” he explained. “He’s always had his hand on me. He always guided me. I didn’t always go where he wanted me to go. But he always had me. Now that I’m actually listening and being obedient, life is so much better.”

According to his lawyer, X is expected to serve a maximum of 90 days, as part of his plea bargain.
