DMX was arrested Thursday night on federal tax fraud charges, the Associated Press and TMZ report. The 46-year-old rapper has allegedly concealed his income for years and now owes the IRS at least $1.7 million. According to the indictment against him, DMX listed his income as “unknown” in 2011 and 2012 and reported only $10,000 in 2013, but the feds allege he made at least $250,000 in all three years.
