Beleaguered rapper DMX was arrested over the weekend just moments before hitting the stage at a scheduled concert appearance.
The 44-year-old rapper was nabbed for failing to pay over $400,000 in child support just prior to his performance at the Masters of Ceremony show at New York City’s Radio Music Hall on Friday evening. After his arrest, it was revealed that the “Get At Me Dog” rapper had a number of outstanding warrants including a White Plains, NY warrant for jumping bail and a warrant from his hometown of Yonkers, NY for operating a motor vehicle without a license. Additionally, there was a warrant for an alleged robbery at a New Jersey gas station.
In the New Jersey robbery case, a 21-year-old man claims a member of DMX’s entourage pulled a gun on him and demanded money before DMX supposedly took $3200 out of his hand and fled the scene in a caravan of black Escalades.
X’s child support arrest is the latest in a long list of run-ins with the law including charges of drug possession, driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, and weapons possession among others.
According to Page Six, DMX was bailed out of jail shortly after his arrest but not in time to join The Lox, Ma$e, Pete Rock, Rakim, and others at the Radio City show.
No trial date has been set for DMX as of yet.
