DMX's lawyer reportedly asks to play his music in court

DMX's lawyer reportedly asks to play his music in court

"We will ask to play a few of his compositions so that the court may understand him genuinely and his voice", Richman said.

"It is raw Earl", Richman said in court documents.

Richman urged the judge to review the songs "Slippin'" and "Convo", and noted, "We are not here or desirous of molding him into what some may want to see; Earl is uniquely him and that is both his beauty of mind and his genius". The aggressivity in X's rapping tone may not do him any favors come Thursday, but it would absolutely be interesting to be a fly on the wall in that sentencing hearing.

Richman contends that lyrics like "Ay yo I'm slippin' / I'm fallin' / I can't get up", speaks to his long history of failed attempts of beating addiction. Stereogum reports that in order to pay back his $1.7 million in taxes and support his 15 children, DMX will need to return to the stage and, instead of prison time, he has advised an "up to 60-day study of [DMX] by qualified consultants" to determine that he is rehabilitated.

DMX had a busy concert schedule booked through July when his bail was revoked.

Tubby Smith to become High Point hoop coach
He replaces former North Carolina player Scott Cherry, who was sacked after going 14-16 this season and 9-9 in the Big South. High Point , a member of the Big South, has not made the tournament since turning Division I in 1999.

DMX now awaits sentencing after pleading guilty to tax fraud for avoiding $1.7 million in taxes over the course of five years.

Rapper DMX skipped out on his taxes for five years and now he's about to pay a hefty price.

DMX allegedly earned $2.3 million from 2010 to 2015, but didn't give any back to Uncle Sam.

In papers filed last week, prosecutors called DMX's crime brazen and sought a five-year prison sentence.
