DMX IN FOR RUFF RYDE…

The rap star faces drug possession and driving charges...

DMX was arrested for driving without a licence and possession of marijuana last Thursday (March 2).

The rapper, real name Earl Simmons was pulled over by police when he was allegedly caught driving at 60mph in a 45mph Zone in Buffalo, NY, following a gig in the city.

DMX is due to appear in court to answer charges relating to driving offences and drug possession on March 21.

It’s not the first time the Ruff Ryders rapper has been in trouble with the law. Last year police raided his home and found a stash of weapons as well as a cage filled with pit bull terriers.
