It was a ruff day for the Ruff Ryder.
DMX was taken into custody Tuesday for leaving a court-ordered drug treatment program and using cocaine and Oxycodone.
The “Get At Me Dog” rapper was put in handcuffs in Manhattan Federal Court following a brief hearing before Judge Jed Rakoff.
The judge said he had tried to accommodate DMX’s tour schedule, but that the rapper had still failed a drug test, left a treatment program and failed to travel with a drug counselor as he’d pledged to do.
