DMX's current legal situation has been making headlines since for the past year. The rapper was sentenced to one year in prison at the end of March for his tax evasion case. His current sentence was definitely better than the five years the prosecutors wanted him to serve. Despite the lenient sentence, the rapper still has $2.3M he has to pay upon his release. The rapper's already looking ahead and is reportedly already got some stuff in the works for his release.

DMX is putting his time behind bars to good use. X's lawyer, Murray Richman, has said that the rapper is currently working on new music while simultaneously receiving offers from book deals to movies about his life, The Blast reports. He's currently sitting in Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York but he's waiting to get transferred FCI Danbury. 

According to Richman, X is happy, looking good and is doing "remarkably well." 

His lawyer also says that he's received over 600 pieces of fan mail letters for X since the verdict a few weeks a go and there coming from all over the world. However, X can only hear about what his fans say because it's contraband in prison. 

Overall, it looks like X's current stint in prison might be working out for him better than anyone could have expected.
