So why was rapper DMX arrested this time around? The 42-year-old hip hop star behind hits such as "Where My Dogs At?" and "Ruff Ryders Anthem," was reportedly busted for driving with no license in part of South Carolina.
The website Inquisitr reports as of Feb. 13 that DMX, real name Earl Simmons, was handcuffed and taken to the Spartansburg Detention Center at approximately 2 a.m. EST. The rapper was pulled over once an officer spotted him in a 1978 Buick and then pulled him over for driving with no license.
DMX was upset about the incident, telling CBS after it happened:
"When I could have just paid the money right there on the spot. Basically it was just five hours wasted for nothing. I don’t have a court date or a court appearance."
When he was arrested, DMX's 5-month-old daughter was in the backseat of the car. However, once "X" was arrested, the car was turned over to a passenger who was also in the car and had their driver's license.
While he's out of jail, for now, DMX has had his share of problems with the law dating back to at least 1998. Back then he had multiple charges including possession of crack cocaine and weapons. He would later spend plenty of his time in prison serving for charges of drug possession, animal cruelty, and violation of probation. However, he also had an arrest in 2011 for speeding, apparently clocked at 102 miles per hour in a 65mph zone. He admitted to driving over the limit but sued the police saying he was actually going 85mph.
As for his music career, he's had plenty of hits and albums over the years including the LP's "It's Dark and Hell is Hot," "Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood," and "The Great Depression." His most recent release was 2012's "Undisputed."
