DMX’s Rep Denies Rapper Smuggled Drugs Into Prison

A rep for troubled rapper DMX is denying reports that the New York emcee smuggled drugs into an Arizona correctional facility.

According to, reports that the rapper attempted to sneak drugs into prison are “exaggerated, and that most of the infractions took place months ago, one as far back as January.”

“DMX never snuck anything into the prison,” a rep told

“As far as him smoking in jail, there is an area where inmates are allowed to smoke. A guard felt that DMX was smoking outside of a designated lined area in the smoking court and started harassing him, which resulted in the charge.”

“DMX is looking forward to being released from prison and resuming his career.”

“We are in the early process of helping ex-rebuild his career in staying on the right track this time.”

DMX is due to be released from prison next week.

Good luck on rebuilding that rap career, though.

He’s going to need it.
