DMX Stopped by Cops Hours After Release from Jail

8/13/2010 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Just hours after DMX was released from jail yesterday ... the rapper was pulled over by police while driving down Sunset Blvd in a rented Mercedes-Benz ... TMZ has confirmed.

0813_dmx_EXD_TMZ.

X's manager tells TMZ the rapper left a recording studio around 11:20 PM when he was stopped for a minor traffic violation.  We're told once officers asked for X's information, they learned that he didn't have a valid driver's license.

DMX wasn't taken into custody -- for a change -- but he was issued a citation and will be due to appear in court sometime in the near future. We're told the cops allowed a passenger in the car to drive the rapper home.

DMX was released from jail yesterday after serving 18 days of a 90-day sentence stemming from a reckless driving conviction in 2002.

Thanks to the girls at Hollyscoop for the heads up on this one.

Karma is a bitch and this guy has a lot of bad stuff coming his way due to his treatment of poor, defenseless dogs. I hope he gets stopped, hassled, arrested AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. Piece of ****!!

i was there    

I saw him driving up San Vicente at least 60 mph right before he got stopped. Cop car was heading the other direction and did a u-turn to catch up to him and stop him. That kind of driving was just begging for attention from the cops. What a dumb ass!!! PS deputy was hot.

What the court needs to do is put him in prison for a year no question asked.
He is not doing anything but getting into trouble anyway.
He has a chip on his shoulder and don't care about anything or anybody.
How stupid can you get just out of jail within a few hours and still can't stay out of trouble. "SAD"
He's a wash-up rapper and needs to go get a real job.
And where did he get money to rent a Mercedes-Benz?
He's broke.
He's another one of thoes getto, thug, wanna be gangster rapper that has no scense of direction.
His next show will be at San Quentin State Prison Auditorium the doors will be open at 7:00 PM.
The church choir will be requied to be 15:00 min. early.

Lol people your nasty comments just revealed and exposed who you people really are inside!!!You think you're all better just because you drove around according to the speed limits???wow how ignorant can you people really be!!!just by reading your comments makes me sick to my stomach!!!you need to clean out your souls and minds you bunch of hypocrites!!!
This man has gotten in trouble with the law yes but just know that he has accomplished and achieved so much success and greatness which NONE of you people will EVER accomplish in your entire lives!!!IF you ever LISTENED to his lyrics you would know the message he sends!!!he's an extraordinary, highly intelligent individual you'd know that by now!!!but to you low minded people "driving around with a license" is what makes a person valuable I see!!!I feel sorry for you people!!!
Just know that while you're sitting there judging him typing up some hateful evil words, at that same moment he's touching people's lives through his music directing them to God!!!
So whatever YOU write is irrelevant and it wont stop God's blessings and grace for him, as he is that chosen vessel to touch and inspire people's souls!!!
There are so many people who appreciate his talent and his message and as well as himself as an individual throughout the world!!!
We Love you X!!!
Please drop an album!!!
May God Bless DMX!!!Earl Simmons!!!
