He won an American Music Award in 2000 for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist.DMX describes being followed from a gas Radio Station by police around 1am. His 5 month old daughter was with him at the time. “They followed me around the corner, pulled me over… First of all, if you’re gonna do it, just pull me over at the gas Radio Station as soon as I got in the car. They didn’t do that. Followed me around the corner, pulled me over, no, I didn’t have a license, put the cuffs on me, brought me here, I paid money when I basically could have just paid money on the spot. It’s basically just five hours wasted for nothing. I don’t have a court date, I don’t have a court appearance,” he said.  Video: DMX Discusses Recent ArrestIn 2011, DMX spent seven months in an Arizona prison for parole violation on drug related charges including cocaine.
