DMX released from prison
DMX has finally been released from prison a week later than intended as the hip hop star now looks to rebuild his music career.
The rapper, real name Earl Simmons, had been serving a one-year sentence for probation violations in an Arizona state jail in Yuma.
His manager, Nakia Walker, said in a statement: "Earl has so much more to offer the world. His latest project has been on hold for so long.
"It is now time for X to redefine the world of hip hop with his highly anticipated album of inspirational, painful and street accredited rhymes. It is time to let the dog out of the kennel."
The last eight years have seen the troubled rapper embroiled in various drug and legal issues. Up to that point, the rapper, who is a member of the Ruff Ryders crew, was one of the biggest and most successful hip hop stars of his generation.
His classic hits include Party Up (Up In Here), Where the Hood At and X Gon' Give It To Ya.
Speaking to AllHipHop.com, DMX said: "I'm going to go see my daughter while the sun is up, then I'm going to be in the studio, man."
