Today, it's reported that he's struck a plea deal in the case.

Earl Simmons a.k.a. DMX pled guilty on Thursday to one count of tax evasion in a New York City federal courtroom.

Rapper DMX performs during week five of the BIG3 Basketball League at UIC Pavilion on 23 July 2017 in Chicago, Illinois. He now faces up to five years in prison, a significant drop from the over forty years he could have been sentenced too previously. He has sold millions of records and from 2002 to 2005 he amassed a tax bill of $1.7 million that prosecutors said went unpaid.

"Today, Earl Simmons admitted to systematically cheating on his taxes".

In 2011 and 2012, Simmons participated in the "Celebrity Couples Therapy" television show, and was paid $125,000 for his participation.

A two-time Grammy award winning artist from the Hudson Valley avoided paying $1.7 million in taxes. We should not forget that the ultimate victims in tax fraud cases are the honest U.S. taxpayers who file and pay their taxes, IRS-CI Special Agent in Charge James D. Robnett said.

DMX's lawyer Murray Richman tells TMZ.

When asked by Bharara what change to the justice system he wished he could make, Judge Rakoff replied: "I would restore to judges nearly total responsibility for sentencing".

Simmons made headlines this week after officially releasing his own rendition of the classic Christmas song, "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer". "Not only by doing away with mandatory minimums and guidelines, but also closely related to that by having judges having some scrutiny over plea bargain, so that it wasn't the prosecutor who was in effect sentencing or determining the sentence, but it was really the judge".
