DMX is trying something new

DMX’s problems with substance abuse have been well-documented. In the rapper’s long fall from grace, drug use has been about the only thing that has remained consistent, but there is some good news. According to TMZ, X has checked into rehab in a facility in New England.

The stint in a substance abuse program was forced onto the rapper by a judge recently. DMX was out on bail after being charged with tax evasion. However, he repeatedly violated the conditions of his bail. He was caught leaving the state without permission and he failed several drug tests. A judge put him under house arrest, but then walked back the punishment with the caveat that X needed to check into a rehab program.
