As The BoomBox previously reported, rapper DMX was released in July from an Arizona state prison after serving an eight-month sentence. And since his incarceration ended, the MC has been making the rounds as a good guy.

According to MTV Hive, DMX had a relatively "normal" fall season. The rapper reportedly mopped up a Greensville, S.C., Waffle House at 4AM in November and went on a similar cleaning spree at a nightclub a week later. (Weapon of choice: vacuum.) Since then, DMX debuted his newest single, 'Keep Your Head Up,' on -- of all places -- 'Dr. Drew's Life Changers.'

So what could be next for the troubled hip-hopper? How about basketball with the troops? The apparently reformed rhymer recently balled with a few disabled veterans after being asked to do so by a fan at X's most recent San Antonio show. DMX showed up the next day for a game of wheelchair pickup, and he even managed to score a few baskets.

"It made my day as much as it did their day," DMX told TMZ. "One told me that I gave him the best early Christmas gift he ever got and that has me still smiling."

So what do you think about X's return from the bottom? Now that "the Dog was let out of the kennel," is he on his way back to the top?
