“RATS!”

News of DMX‘s legal trouble isn’t surprising anymore. It’s actually more surprising when the dude is NOT in jail. It’s sad, really, but I imagine that it’s hard to “get away” with your crimes when you’re always running around barking like a rabid dog. I know when I commit crimes I try to be discreet. This is probably not a thing that DMX is capable of (maybe he should try taking on a cat persona?). Nobody even says “Free DMX” anymore because after years of going in and out of jail, it’s just played out and not trendy anymore. Ugh, hope you get your shit together soon, X.

TMZ has learned rapper DMX is planning to surrender to authorities in a Los Angeles courtroom and begin serving jail time in connection to a crime he committed “5 or 6 years ago” … this according to X’s manager.

UPDATE: TMZ has learned X’s jail stint all stems from a 2002 reckless driving conviction. Turns out, DMX was placed on probation after he plead no contest to the crime … but has since violated his probation … and has been ordered to serve 90 days in a city jail facility.
