Rapper DMX was arrested right this moment on prices of failing to offer it to ya (it, on this case, being taxes, and “ya” being the U.S. authorities). In keeping with The Hollywood Reporter, X is alleged to have hid tens of millions of in revenue from the IRS, and prevented paying as a lot as $1.7 million in taxes over time. The rapper surrendered himself into federal custody right this moment.
The case will presumably go down in historical past as the one time the federal authorities has ever referenced the lyrics of “X Gon’ Give It To Ya” in connection to a high-profile case, with the IRS noting that, whereas the rapper was “raking in tens of millions from his songs,” “DMX didn’t give any of it to the IRS.” (And sure, that’s just about the very same joke we made up prime, however what had been we gonna do? Make a tax evasion joke about “Celebration Up”?)
DMX is at present going through 14 separate counts associated to tax fraud and evasion. It stays to be seen how this may have an effect on the Ruff Ryders reunion tour introduced final month.
