Rapper DMX Released From Jail
Plans to start Christian ministry & gospel album
Rapper DMX was released from Maricopa County Jail late yesterday afternoon (May 13) in the Phoenix, Arizona area. DMX was serving a 90-day sentence from charges stemming from acts that involved drugs, fraud and animal cruelty. His stay in the jail stretched a little longer than 90 days due to charges tacked on for getting into a altercation with a corrections officer. While locked up X gave a jailhouse interview in which he stated:
“I’m gonna start a [Christian ministry] TV show called Pain and Perseverance, it’s about how I can reach people that the average person can’t reach because I’m grounded,” he stated. “I’m going to give my first sermon, in the church. That’s going to be incredible for me and hopefully the congregation of that church. I’ve completed my gospel album. On every one of my albums there’s been a gospel song and prayer. Because of my image those songs are never made singles except my sixth album where they did ‘Lord Give Me a Sign.’”
No comment or press release was given at time of release.
