Yonkers rapper [twitter=dmxthegreat]DMX[/twitter] can’t catch a break. After an early morning court appearance, Earl Simmons was ordered to remain in custody without bond for last months’ probation violation.

As Def Sounds previously reported, DMX violated probation after failing to submit to drug testing, possessing cocaine and OxyContin, and driving on a suspended license.

A Maricopa County Superior Court judge will resume X’s probation hearing on December 16th; until such date, the rapper is to remain jailed.

According to Prosecutor’s complaint: Mr. Simmons has several felony convictions, and has been given multiple opportunities to succeed on probation. He has been directed to treatment, as well as chose his own treatment program and continues to use illegal drugs following their opportunities.
