DMX was previously convicted of tax fraud . He has been accused of creating bank accounts in other people names, avoiding banks on his own personal behalf and paying large lump sums of money for expenses in pure cash to deflect from a money trail. Sources have indicated that DMX has accepted full responsibility for his actions, further stating : “I knew that taxes needed to be paid. I hired people but I didn't follow up. I guess I really didn't put too much concern into it,” he said. “I never went to the level of tax evasion where I'd sit down and plot ... like a criminal in a comic book.”
