DMX Released From Jail, Working on Christian TV Show

DMX was released from Arizona’s Maricopa County Jail yesterday afternoon (May 13) after spending over 90 days in the facility for animal cruelty, drug and fraud related charges. Originally sentenced to 90 days in jail, the Yonkers native’s stay was prolonged after an alleged altercation with a corrections officer.

In an interview conducted during his incarceration, DMX spoke of plans to begin a Christian ministry once he left the Arizona facility. “I’m going to start a TV show called Pain and Perseverance, it’s about how I can reach people that the average person can’t reach because I’m grounded,” X said.

“I’m going to give my first sermon in the church. That’s going to be incredible for me and hopefully the congregation of that church. I’ve completed my gospel album. On every one of my albums there’s been a gospel song and prayer. Because of my image those songs are never made singles except my sixth album where they did ‘Lord Give Me a Sign.’”

Reports surfaced back in April that following his release from jail X would join the next cast of ‘Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.’ Reps for the troubled rapper have since denied the claims, stating the reports to be false.
