DMX Moved to Mental Health Unit at Arizona State Prison
According to a report from Phoenix News, rapper DMX has been moved to the mental health unit at an Arizona State Prison called Alhambra.
According to the report, it is believed that the rapper may be suffering from bi-polar disorder. The topic of DMX's mental state has always been a sensitive subject. His manager actually refused to make an official statement about the rappers move to the mental health unit but did admit that she was not surprised at the move.
In the past, DMX himself actually wouldn't answer questions about his mental state. An incident in the past made it clear that discussing the rapper's mental state was off limits.
In 2001, the rapper threatened to beat up a reporter, who asked about his mental state during an interview for Blender Magazine. X threatened to beat the reporter up for asking about it, "Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too personal," DMX said about the question.
According to the report from Phoenix News, "DMX was sentenced to a year in jail (minus 113 days served) on December 16, after he pleaded guilty to violating the terms of his probation. At his sentencing, Judge Christine Mulleneaux told him she believes he has “an undiagnosed mental condition,” possibly bi-polar disorder."
