Hood locator and father of 12 (!) DMX began a six-month stint in jail on Tuesday after failing to pay $400,000 worth of child support, WIVB reports.

Last month, the rapper was arrested by New York City Sheriff’s deputies for a number of “issues outstanding” before being extradited to Erie County serve time for the family court-issued sentence. From USA Today:

DMX also was served warrants from the city of White Plains, N.Y., for jumping bail and a robbery complaint from Newark, N.J. The Newark-based charges were dropped.

DMX attempted to file for bankruptcy in 2013 for protection from creditors owed $1.8 million in contract disputes, goods, services and child support, but a federal judge threw out the case. Last year, DMX’s Mount Kisco, N.Y., house, inhabited by his estranged wife Tashera Simmons, went into foreclosure.

Yesterday, anti-ISIS fighter Shaggy confirmed DMX’s imprisonment, ruefully noting the rapper would not be out of jail in time for this year’s Shaggfest.
