Earl “DMX” Simmons took a plea due and admitted to “systematically cheating on his taxes.”

The rapper pleaded guilty to 14 counts of tax evasion and spilled all the tea on how he tried to cheat the system.

“[He] paid in cash whenever possible and having royalty payments diverted to the accounts of financial surrogates, Simmons concealed hundreds of thousands of dollars of income from the IRS.” – Joon H. Kim – Acting United States Attorney for the Southern District of NYC

He also failed to file personal tax returns and has $1.7 million in unpaid taxes.

He’s facing 5 years in the slammer!


  1. WoW. I really hope he doesn’t go to jail. Seems like he was finally turning his life around.

    By the way, who the heck was his lawyer……… Phaedra Parks.

  2. Detoxed so maybe this is his affordable rehab – lots of black men have experienced this and done their time and come home after a few years.

  3. They probably will let him walk so he can ‘entertain’ and pay back what he owes. Nobody escapes the IRS!

  4. How is he going to pay taxes when he is always in prison?
    He doesn’t have an accountant or any money. ?

  5. He’ll go to the FED country club prison and probably record new music and detox.

    Most fed prisons are like College campuses- it might actually be better for him there.

    • he doesn’t have the money, and has too damn many jail convictions to go to fed prison.
