DMX is back in a familiar place: jail.
TMZ reported that the rapper was taken into custody on Jan. 30 for failing drug tests, which violates his probation in his tax evasion case.
The rapper has reportedly been arrested 20 times for a variety of crimes over the years.
In his recent violation, TMZ said the judge ruled DMX was a flight risk after testing positive for opiates, cocaine and oxycodone. He's previously failed drug tests in the past.
The arrest comes a week after a video surfaced showing DMX at a St. Louis airport bar. The video shows him preaching to fellow patrons and appearing under the influence. Witnesses told TMZ that he was drinking and buying shots for other patrons.
Prior to Tuesday's arrest, DMX was out on bail for his tax evasion case. Under terms of the bail, he was required to abstain from drugs and alcohol. In fact, he was supposed to be completing rehab.
DMX's attorney, Murray Richman, told the wesbite, "I'm saddened and disappointed. We'll have to deal with it accordingly." His lawyer added that he will try to get X back in rehab.
The "Ruff Ryders Anthem" rapper will be sentenced in March.
On July 13, 2017, the rapper was arrested and charged with 14 counts of tax evasion. He pled not guilty to the charges and posted a $500,000 bail.
In the charging documents, the U.S. Attorney's Office said DMX had concealed his income for several years and owed the federal government about $2 million. The feds alleges that X avoided bank accounts and used surrogates to hide his money. He also lived mostly on cash.
Documents also show that in 2011 and 2012, he made nearly $900,000, but listed his income as "unknown." The following year he said he made $10,000, but authorities believe he actually made $250,000.
In late November 2017, DMX struck a plea deal in his ongoing case, pleading guilty to one count of tax evasion in New York.
