DMX Leaving Jail Next Month, Working on New Album

The Ruff Ryders MC was arrested in November 2010 and sentenced to a year in prison for parole violation. As an inmate, he also broke rules -- possessing drugs, failing or refusing a drug test, smoking, and being disrespectful, disruptive and disorderly, according to TMZ.

A source close to DMX's camp told Billboard.com's The Juice that the rapper has earned up to 30 more days of incarceration. He has a total of seven disciplinary infractions.

DMX has been prepping his seventh studio album, "Redemption of the Beast." The album is slated for late this year.
