DMX Headed Back To Jail For Failed Drug Test

After a brief glimmer of hope, DMX has endured another setback.

Iconic rapper DMX was taken into custody at a Manhattan courthouse Tuesday morning probation violation, per TMZ.

The veteran MC, who has long struggled with substance abuse, was arrested this time for failing a drug test. Reportedly, X tested positive for cocaine, opiates and oxycodone. The judge also declared him a flight risk.

The Ruff Ryders icon was out on bail over a tax evasion case and had been ordered to complete drug rehab as a condition of his bail. After brief stay in a New England rehab clinic, X — whose real name is Earl Simmons — was back out and had put on 40 lbs.

Video of X at an airport bar, circulated last week, raised some eyebrows. In the footage, he is seen drinking heavily and buying shots for strangers as he preached the Gospel.
