It looks like things just took a turn for the worse for DMX following last month’s arrest in NYC. According to Buffalo’s news station WIVB, the former Ruff Ryder has just started to serve a six-month prison stint in Buffalo, New York today.

The 44-year old was apparently placed at Erie County Holding Center in Buffalo, New York on Tuesday, which is a "pretrial, maximum security detention facility”. The sentence was handed down by Family Court Judge Deanne Trippi for failure to comply with a previous court order, which is unknown, but could include either past child support issues or traffic violations.

This isn’t X’s first run-in with the law this year either. Back in April, a 21-year old man alleged that he was robbed by DMX and his entourage at a Newark Exxon gas station. Nothing really came from it (publicly at least), just negative publicity for X, who's had more than enough of that in his career.

We’ll keep you posted on this story if anything more comes from it.
