DMX is out on bond in his tax evasion case, but isn't making it easy for the judge not to throw him in jail.
TMZ reports that the multi-platinum rapper, real name Earl Simmons, got an earful when he showed up for his bond hearing on Friday, August 11, 30 minutes late.
He's allegedly failed four drug tests for cocaine and marijuana. In addition, X violated another condition of his bond by leaving New York City to take care of some family matters in St. Louis, without getting court permission first.
As a result he's been placed on house arrest and must wear an ankle monitor.
DMX is currently facing 14 counts of evading more than $1 million in federal taxes. If convicted he could be sentenced to 44 years in federal prison.
