Legendary American rapper, DMX, 48, is now a free man after his release from federal prison today.
The veteran hip pop star born Earl Simmons was released on Friday morning from Gilmer Federal Correctional Institution in West Virginia after serving a one-year sentence for tax evasion.
After his released from prison, DMX headed straight to a local spot for breakfast with his son and fiancee.
Although Vulture reported DMX, 48, was originally scheduled to be released on Sunday, the Bureau of Prisons has a policy of releasing inmates on “the last preceding weekday if their projected release date falls on a weekend or legal holiday,”
One day ahead of the star’s release, his lawyer Murray Richman, told Vulturethat DMX is “very happy.”
