Then the judge reportedly let into the rapper after it was revealed he had failed four drug tests-testing positive for cocaine and marijuana.

In July, the NY native whose birth name is Earl Simmons, was arrested on suspicion of tax evasion for allegedly owing the IRS more than $1 million in back taxes. Now, Judge Rakoff has ordered X to appear in court this Friday (Aug. 11), where, if it's determined X did, indeed, violate the terms of his partial release, he could find himself being sent back to a jail cell.

If convicted of tax evasion, DMX faces up to 44 years in jail. However, X recently visited family in St. Louis without informing the court. He has also been ordered to wear an ankle monitor and can not even step outside to mow the lawn, according to the report.
