Rapper DMX has been slammed with a 1 year term by a US Federal Court for committing tax fraud.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Southern District of New York, the rapper had devised a multi-year scheme which he used in evading about $1.7 million tax payment.
Despite going on tours and selling records, the report said DMX had avoided using a bank account in his name and was mostly transacting with cash in order to avoid tax payment.
However, DMX while responding said he was guilty of the offence levied against him.
He said, “I wasn’t following the rules, I was in a cloud.”
