DMX, aka Earl Simmons, was headed off to jail again after being taken into custody Thursday night in Maricopa County, Arizona for a probation violation. Needless to say this guy has a little drug problem. Sources say that he had cocaine on him. In addition, according to the complaint, he was also cited for use of Oxycontin without a prescription, failing to submit to drug testing, failing to participate in counseling programs, failure to make payments, and driving on a suspended license.

According to his manager, Nakia Walker, “He just didn’t check in with his probation officer, and it’s just a matter of him not following the rules.” She confirmed that the rapper is being held without bail until a probation-revocation hearing slated for next Wednesday. At press time, Walker said she hadn’t spoken to her client, who she claimed was going through a rough patch in his life. Ummm, hello! DMX is in the middle of a TEN YEAR rough patch!

Will DMX ever change? I don’t think so.

Oh, D…we wish you the best, but damn you make it hard!
