DMX gets year in prison for violating probation



rsz_tbd-dmx121710.jpgRapper DMX has had his probation revoked for not meeting rehab terms and is headed back to prison, the AP reports. Because we all know prisons are where you go to treat drug and alcohol dependency.

Maricopa County Superior Court in Phoenix ruled Thursday that Earl Simmons had to go back to the cooler for a year. He was arrested alst month for violating probation by getting kicked out of a rehab center and having a drink in a Scottsdale club during a performance. He even did it on stage, for crying out loud.

He also was caught driving on a suspended license and wouldn't submit to drug testing. This is after getting probation when he was convicted of attempted aggravated assault for throwing a food tray at a jail guard and theft for trying to used a fake name to get out of a hospital bill, the AP adds. Between him, Ja Rule and T.I., it really isn't a safe time to be a rap producer -- all your acts are always locked down. Thank goodness Lil Wayne is out!
