DMX's Lawyer Will Play Judge His Music Before Sentencing For Tax Evasion

Prosecutors want DMX to get the maximum five years in prison for the one count of tax evasion he pleaded guilty to late last year.

X's lawyer Murray Richman has a rather novel way to try to convince the judge otherwise.

Richman plans to play US District Judge Jed Rakoff the 47-year old's music because he thinks X may be too emotional to speak during the sentencing on March 29 and he wants Rakoff to "understand him genuinely in his voice."

“It was a salvation of sort to shut out the noise,” Richman -- who's already sent Rakoff the lyrics to “Slippin'” and “The Convo" -- said. “It is raw [DMX]. 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 is hoping to get his client off without prison and wants to convince Rakoff that the best solution would be to get the newly-sober X back on stage where he can pay back the IRS the $1.7 million he owes and feed his 15 kids.
