DMX Delivers First Performance Following Prison Release
The hip-hop veteran rocked the mic days after serving a one-year sentence for tax evasion.
DMX has been out of prison less than a week and is already getting back to work. The 48-year-old rapper delivered his first, post-prison performance at Staten Island's Mr. Ciao nightclub on Saturday (Jan. 26).
X's energetic set included renditions of his most popular hits, including "Party Up" and "Ruff Ryders' Anthem."
As previously reported, DMX was released from prison after serving one year for tax evasion. As terms of his release, X was ordered to attend mental health and substance abuse programs.
Following his return, Swizz Beatz commented on his "brother's" mental state. "I just got off the phone with my brother DMX! He told me this time he didn’t work out his body in jail he said he worked out his mind! He also said he’s about to make music for the people that need his truth and pain," Swizz wrote on social media.
His Staten Island performance is just the beginning, however. X is also gearing up to perform at Rolling Loud Miami in May 2019. Additionally, previous reports claim the rapper is in talks of producing new music and a biopic.
We'll all have to stay tuned for what's to come. In the meantime, watch DMX's first performance in the video below.
