DMX to Remain in Prison After Being Caught with Drugs

DMX’s prison stay has been extended. The embattled hip-hop star will remain behind bars after being busted for drugs.

Law enforcement officials tell TMZ that the rapper, born Earl Simmons, violated several rules while serving time in Arizona’s Yuma state prison. He was cited for seven disciplinary infractions including drug possession, failing or refusing a drug test, unauthorized smoking, being disrespectful, and disorderly conduct.

The “Party Up (Up in Here)” hitmaker was scheduled to be released on Wednesday, seven months after he was sentenced to serve time for a probation violation. The date has now been delayed to July 19 because he tested positive for drugs, reports CNN.
