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.

Well, I'm all for Lindsay serving her FULL sentence, for sure! But, she also isn't a 9 time offender. I mean, come on man.

Damn, DMX must love jail, LOL. This fool probably spent more time in a jail cell than he has in his own house, the past 6 or 7 years, LOL...

We will see if DMX gets out in 13 days like Lindsay Lohan. But I have a feeling that he won't. TMZ had better keep track of this and they should also find some other (nonfamous) people right now that are going into the LA jail system with 90 day sentences to see if everybody really gets out in 13 days. And the way it sounds, Lindsay isn't even going to be spending that much time if she ends up getting out by the end of this week like her lawyer keeps saying she will.

People need to fight against the jail system... it's making bad things worse. It should be illegal for them to force someone back into hail less than a few days after they let you out... to say that it's based on charges from 6 years ago... what kinda BS is that. People need to stand up and fight this evil that is the jail system.
