DMX is almost finished serving out his 12-month prison sentence on tax evasion charges.

The rap veteran’s attorney, Murray Richman, told TMZ on Thursday (Dec. 27) that the It's Dark and Hell Is Hot MC will be released from Gilmer Federal Correctional Institution on Jan. 27, 2019. That’s good news considering DMX has been in and out of prison for a number of legal offenses.

Richman says that DMX is excited to go home and be with his family. The Ruff Ryder hopes to resume his film and music career once he’s out of prison.

The celebrity news site also says DMX is anxious to see his 2-year-old son Exodus Simmons, who reportedly has some serious health problems. The outlet goes on to say X has written a ton of songs in prison and is eager to go in the studio and flesh out those song ideas for a new project.

Back in April, the 48-year-old rapper has reportedly received book offers and movie deals while he was in prison. “[He] looks great, is very happy, and overall, is doing remarkably well,” Murray said back in April.

But DMX is not out of the woods just yet. Apparently, he still has a legal case pending in Los Angeles. In addition, he has been ordered to pay $2.3 million in restitution related to his tax evasion case. A judge will allow DMX to pay off the debt with monthly installments of 10 percent of his gross monthly income. The repayment plan will start two months after his release where he will be under court-ordered supervision for three years.
