When Swizz Beatz says “Ruff Ryders for Life” he means it!! “Where My Dawgs At” rapper DMX aka Earl Simmons was recently sentenced to one year in jail for Tax evasion. As you know tax evasion can land you in prison for up to 5 years.
Mega hip hop producer/DJ, Swizz Beatz tells TMZ “his support for DMX is unwavering and has been there long before the tax evasion case. We’re told Swizz plans to visit DMX in prison and send him all the positive energy he can muster. ”
According to the Prosecutors, DMX owed $1.7 million dollars in unpaid taxes. In an attempt to be lenient on his client, DMX’s attorney Murray Richman, had his song “slippin” play in court. It must’ve helped his case because the judge granted him the minimum one year sentence. The attorney says you could here a pin drop after the song ended and sources say DMX cried in the mense of the record playing.
After he is released from jail, Swizz and DMX will be completing his album.
