The 46-year-old rapper, who was arrested in mid-July for tax fraud, was reportedly 30 minutes late to a Friday hearing to ensure he is complying with bail requirements.

Rather than sending him to jail, which the judge could have easily done, the judge made DMX wear an ankle monitor to make sure he doesn't stray again. "In addition, it sounds like he's a liar".

E! News reports that DMX (real name Earl Simmons) is now under house arrest. His lawyer said he had been hung up in West Side traffic.

When he was asked how he would celebrate his freedom, the multiplatinum hip-hop artist said: "That's a celebration right there".

DMX is now out on bail from a tax evasion case and one of the conditions is that he has to stay clean of drugs. On July 14, he pled not guilty to the charges and posted a $500,000 bail. They say he moved hundreds of thousands of dollars in music royalty income into his managers' bank accounts, letting them pay him in cash so he could hide it from the Internal Revenue Service.

The "X Gon Give It to Ya" rapper is in even more trouble.
