DMX's Lawyers Are Going to Play His Songs in Court to Sway Judge During Sentencing

No comments
DMX currently awaits sentencing after pleading guilty to tax fraud for avoiding $1.7 million in taxes over the course of five years. "I failed to file taxes," he told U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff in December. "I'm responsible, even placing other people in charge of it."
The rapper's prosecutors are seeking a five-year prison sentence and urged Rakoff to "send the message to this defendant and others that star power does not entitle someone to a free pass."
According to court documents made public on Monday, DMX's legal team has a unique plan in place to sway the judge's opinion: they're going to play his songs at the sentencing.
Attorney Murray Richman said that he plans to play a few of DMX's songs at Thursday's sentencing so that the judge will "understand him genuinely in his voice." Richman explains that DMX may be too emotional to speak. "It is raw Earl," he says. "We are not here or desirous of molding him into what some may want to see; Earl is uniquely him and that is both his beauty of mind and his genius."
Richman has reportedly already sent the judge lyrics to "Slippin'" and "The Convo," as well as other unnamed songs. Continue for a preview of what Judge Jed Rakoff might hear in court this Thursday.
