According to the New York Post, DMX was tearful throughout the sentencing hearing, which featured a moment where his lawyers were allowed to play the rapper's track "Slippin'." The song's autobiographical lyrics focus on DMX's various struggles throughout his life.

They actually played the song in the courtroom tho....thats a great song by the way!!

All told, it wasn't a terrible day for DMX, since the prosecution was looking to put him in the slammer for five years.

I didn't know DMX has 15 kids to support, so again we wish the X the best!! Also to in addition to that 1 year bid, X  will have to pay back more than $2 million in taxes.
