Rapper DMX Guilty of Trying to Buy Drugs

Alas, the sad saga of rapper DMX‘s downfall, has reached another melancholy milestone. The rapper pleaded guilty Thursday of trying to buy drugs in Miami and will be extradited to Arizona “where he expects to be released on bond”.

Rap star DMX pleaded guilty to trying to buy cocaine and marijuana in Miami and was awaiting extradition to Arizona on outstanding drug charges there, his lawyer said on Thursday.

The rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, entered the plea on Wednesday in Miami-Dade Circuit Court and was sentenced to time served, said his lawyer Bradford Cohen.

He was jailed two or three days after his July arrest on a charge of trying to buy illegal drugs from an undercover police officer during a street corner sting, Cohen said.

Unfortunately, even if DMX is released on bond, he still has additional charges to face:

Simmons has a home in Arizona and missed a court hearing there on charges of possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He also faces animal cruelty charges stemming from the discovery of dog carcasses and malnourished dogs on his property near Phoenix.
