DMX Headed Back to Jail

7/26/2010 6:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned rapper DMX is planning to surrender to authorities in a Los Angeles courtroom and begin serving jail time in connection to a crime he committed "5 or 6 years ago" ... this according to X's manager.


X's manager tells us she's not sure about the nature of the crime -- but insists that DMX is "focused" on taking care of all of his past legal issues so he can move on with his life.

Earlier this month, DMX completed a 4-month jail stint in Arizona ... where he served time for a probation violation.

UPDATE: TMZ has learned X's jail stint all stems from a 2002 reckless driving conviction. Turns out, DMX was placed on probation after he plead no contest to the crime ... but has since violated his probation ... and has been ordered to serve 90 days in a city jail facility.

Let's wait and see how much longer he serves than Lindsay.
Amazing how they can find more room for you, and not kick you out after a week due to "overcrowding" if your name isn't Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, or Alexis Neirs.

Wondering if he will do all 90 days or if he will get out in 2 weeks.

Can someone at TMZ explain how a reckless driving conviction can have a probation exceeding 1 to 3 years? Two years would be common, but having a looming probation for that long is crazy. Even if his case took 1 year before settled.

Harvey that long of probation is highly unusual

What a total & complete douche. It's obvious he doesn't take legal affairs very seriously, even after spending 4 months in jail. Not only does he continue to break the law, but he also continues to break his probation! Moron! Hope he enjoys the grey bar hotel; it's what's in his future for a long time to come...

If he gets the Linsey treatment he will be out in less than 2 weeks. If not the cry will be racism. No way to win America!!!!!!!!!!!

His face already shows that he knows the MAN is wearing his a.s.s down. DMX is going to need a psychiatrist when they are finished with him and his wife jumping ship just shows how bad things really are with between them. Thanks B.I.T.C.H, enjoy HIS money and thanks for bailing out on him when he might need you the most.
I hope he doesn't give up and kill himself one of these days.
because he seems to be drifting real bad.

He has a very long rap sheet that can be seen on his wiki profile

Its time to throw away the key

You cant compare him to Lindsay with his long rap sheet.
