DMX is gonna have the book thrown at him in his tax evasion case, if federal prosecutors get their way … TMZ has learned.
According to docs, the U.S. District Attorney’s Office is recommending the rapper get the max — 5 years in prison — when he’s sentenced next week. Prosecutors are urging the judge to “send the message” to X that “star power doesn’t entitle someone to a free pass.”
TMZ broke the story … DMX struck a plea in November. He entered a guilty plea to one count of tax evasion, and avoided seriously hard time — up to 40 years.
X was feeling good about the case after the deal, but since then he’s been sent back to jail for failing a drug test — and now prosecutors want to make sure he learns a lesson.
In docs, prosecutors say he’s been “on a one-man crime spree for the past 30 years.”
He does have a lot of mug shots. Sentencing goes down next Wednesday.
