So… I guess X didn’t give it to them?

According to TMZ, rapper DMX (who’s looking awful, judging by the photo TMZ used), is in trouble with the government for Tax Evasion.

We’re not talking some chump change either. If he gets snagged up for the 14 counts he’s charged with, that’s considered 44 years of jail time, according to TMZ.

He apparently was not using regular bank accounts, having people like managers take his pay from all of his hits, and was living mostly off cash, and now owes the IRS 1.7 Million.

He turned himself into jail and will appear in front of the judge tomorrow. I guess he stopped, dropped, shut it down, and closed shop on this one…
