Rapper Earl Simmons, better known as DMX, is housed in a mental-health unit at an Arizona State Prison Complex facility called Alhambra near 25th street and Van Buren.

DMX was sentenced to a year in jail (minus 113 days served) on December 16, after he pleaded guilty to violating the terms of his probation. At his sentencing, Judge Christine Mulleneaux told him she believes he has "an undiagnosed mental condition," possibly bi-polar disorder.

DMX's manager, Nakia Walker, wouldn't comment specifically on whether DMX might have a mental disorder, but she says she wasn't surprised when he was moved to a mental-health unit. The rapper himself always has refused to comment on speculation about his mental state. In 2001, he threatened to beat up writer William Shaw for asking about it in a Blender magazine interview. "Waaaay too personal," DMX said.

The embattled hip-hop star is incarcerated for the 13th time. His record includes more than 25 arrests across the nation, 11 felony convictions, and 15 misdemeanor convictions.

Arizona Department of Corrections files confirm that DMX was admitted to the Flamenco Mental Health Unit at Alhambra on December 20. According to Walker, he will not be allowed to have  visitors for 30 days.

Anyone that mentions anything about their belief in God is always considered to be "mental" its just in the devils plan to shut christianity up and whoever believes in him to be locked up the devil is really the ruler of the world but in the end God is goin to put all this madness to rest and upon his return every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is LORD!!!!!

No matter how hard you try to ruin an ex-rapper's image, who now wants to be RELIGIOUS, we know. We know who you are and what you want us to think. As for anyone who shifted this man to a mental institute (cough "legal" judge upholder of the "law"), see you in hell, you tool.

I think the bigger problem is the 11 felony convictions. Doesn't that make him a repeat offender, subject to a longer prison term?
