DMX Fails 4 Drug Tests, Sentenced to House Arrest

According to TMZ, the "X Gon' Give It To Ya" rapper reportedly showed up 30 minutes late to his bail bond hearing, and failed four drug tests, but the judge made a decision to show some mercy.

The "Party Up" rhymer also tested twice for marijuana and opiates in his system as well.

But the judge continued to show mercy on DMX, ordering him to home detention with an electronic ankle bracelet rather than locking him up.
