DMX Sentenced To 1 Year In Prison For Tax Evasion

Last fall, DMX pleaded guilty to tax fraud, and the judge just sentenced him to 1 year in prison, as TMZ reports. During the sentencing, his attorney played the “Slippin'” music video to help the judge “understand him genuinely in his voice” and get across the struggles that DMX has gone through. Prosecutors were pushing for a longer sentence, especially after he was imprisoned after a positive drug test while he was out on bail.
