eat a dam twinkie you skank!!    

This man disgusts me, not cause he is a drug addict looser, cause theres plenty of those in the music industry but his violent acts toward animals, he is a sick man, he needs to go to the slammer and stay there!!! Waste of space.

There are too many racists on here,,this was clearly another set up from white cops to frame a successful black man. He deserves to go free. I am over this.

1. DMX, album chart-wise, had the most successful start of any musical artist of any genre. His first 5 albums ( covering 1999-2004) all debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts. To date his worst studio album was # 2.

He also made millions of dollars in movies. He was making $5 million per movie 5 years ago. He has a few movies coming up, though they look like !@#$

2. DMX has always had a lot of problems, drug and otherwise. Before his first album even came out he was pretty much nuts- and a crackhead. He has been a drug addicted paranoid mentally ill person for a long time. Cocaine is a hell of a drug and I'm sure he's lost a lot of his money and any sense ( if he had any) a long time ago. He's talented but obviously screwed up.

3. As far as comparing him to "typical rappers", there are many many rappers and only one DMX. As far as success he is probably in the top 5 of all-time and #1 in mental illness/drug addiction. While many rappers probably smoke weed ( as have around 60% or more of the genera population including most white people) and have petty run ins with the law, DMX is in a whole other class. I could name a couple hundred rappers off the top of my head and very few have a criminal record, let alone being arrested every day, and very few have a Gold or Platinum album- especially not 6 like this guy has.

It's sad, and if he has ever committed and been convicted of an actual violent crime ( other than the consensual acts most white people commit and are never charged for), sure he belongs in jail.

DMX is bipolar--too bad he is not in recovery. He needs mental health help. Many people who have mental illnesses use illegal drugs, most have the comorbidity of Axis 1 criteria for polysubstance abuse. Perhaps this time the judge could sentence him to an intensive outpatient treatment program for treatment and management of his bipolar disorder and polysubstance abuse, and maybe even trauma recovery. Wasn't his childhood pretty violent. Maybe he also has am additional comorbidity of boarderline personality disorder.
