DMX Must Stay Jailed; Rapper Cusses In Court

An extradition hearing turned sour for rapper DMX in Miami this morning (August 26).

The troubled superstar appeared before Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Lawrence Schwartz, hoping to be released on bond and ordered back to Arizona, where he faces multiple charges drug and paraphernalia possession.

However, as in a previous decision, Schawrtz decided to uphold the no bond status attached to a bench warrant issued for the rapper’s arrest on August 12.

The judge’s decision means the 37-year-old New York native, born Earl Simmons will have to remain in custody in South Florida, for at least one more month.

With the decision handed down, DMX was heard stating “I ain’t going back to no f**king jail” as he walked away from the podium, a statement which did not sit well with the court.

“Oh, well that just ingratiated you to me,” Schwartz replied before issuing a warning to X’s lawyer, Charles Kozelka.

DMX was arrested at a North Miami Beach Wal-Mart store on August 14, just three days after missing a court appearance in Phoenix.

He was set to go on trial for four counts of possessing drug paraphernalia and one count of possession of marijuana.

At the time of his arrest, Kozelka told the courts that he had missed the Phoenix appearance because he had checked into a Miami hospital, as a preliminary step to entering a drug rehab program.
