DMX was arrested on Tuesday (Oct. 27) at his home in Westchester County, N.Y. on a contempt of court charge from back in July for allegedly failing to pay his ex-wife and their four children $10,000 a month in child support.

The rapper, whose given name is Earl Simmons, recently served three month in jail also tied to unpaid child support charges. On Tuesday, though, he was ultimately released without bail after making his case to the judge. "It’s not like I can hide,” Simmons said according to a report from USA Today.

His argument for release contended that he couldn't make money without performing, and thus, without being released. “All I have is my name and my reputation,” he added, saying that playing shows is “only way I can make a living."
