DMX is scheduled to appear in a Manhattan court on Thursday for sentencing after he pleaded guilty to a tax evasion charge.
According to Billboard, in court documents that were made public on Monday. DMX’s attorney, Murray Richman, wants to play his music for District Judge Jed Rakoff so that he can “understand him genuinely in his voice,” since he may be too emotional to speak during the sentencing.
The 47-year-old has been behind bars since January after his bail was revoked.
Richman has reportedly sent the lyrics to “Slippin” and “The Convo,” to the judge, stating, “We are not here or desirous of molding him into what some may want to see; Earl is uniquely him and that is both his beauty of mind and his genius.”
Richman has also suggested a “unique resolution,” such as a 60-day study by qualified consultants, opposed to jail time. He argued DMX’s need to return to the stage in order make money to pay back the $1.7 million in taxes and to support his 15 children.
