But it appears as though things are finally looking up for the hip-hop heavyweight following a reportedly successful stint in rehab.
According to TMZ, the Yonkers born lyricist has packed on 40 pounds since entering a New England treatment facility in August. X's lawyer, Murray Richman, also shared that the rapper is “back to being human again.”
Although the program is almost complete, Richman suggests X will remain in rehab for 30 more days since it's had a positive effect on the emcee. X has even been granted day visits with a friend to a nearby town.
Back in mid-July, a lawsuit was filed alleging that the "Slippin'" rapper evaded $1.7 million in taxes. While X managed to make bail for the criminal case, the rapper failed to abstain from drugs and was subsequently placed on house arrest. X’s case, in which he is facing up to 44 years in prison if convicted, is still pending and will reportedly resume once he returns home from rehab.
