Posted on

Rapper DMX (né Earl Simmons), 39, was sentenced to six months in an Arizona prison and 20 months probation yesterday for violating the terms of his probation by regularly using drugs, Reuters reports. Simmons was arrested last week when he admitted to his probation officer that he had been using cocaine, for which he faced five counts of violating his probation.
