JUST IN: Yonkers Rapper DMX Arrested, May Spend 40 Years In Jail For $1.7m Tax Fraud

Rapper DMX turned himself in to authorities on federal charges of tax fraud Thursday, according to New York prosecutors.

The recording artist, whose given name is Earl Simmons, allegedly engaged in a multi-year scheme to hide millions of dollars in income from authorities and owes $1.7 million in taxes.

Acting Manhattan US Attorney Joon Kim said the performer took in millions from his performances, television shows and songs — including the 2003 hit “X Gon’ Give it to Ya” — but evaded paying taxes on his earnings by “avoiding personal bank accounts, setting up accounts in other’s names and paying personal expenses largely in cash.”
