DMX has been released from a Phoenix jail after serving a 90-day sentence for felony convictions. The rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, left a Maricopa County jail Thursday on a $10,000 bond.

Simmons' lawyer, Glenn Allen, said his client was in good spirits and was still in Maricopa County.

"He's extremely happy that he's home," Allen said. "We look forward to being able to handle his case with him out of custody."

A spokeswoman for the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says Simmons will likely return to court to face charges added while in jail. Simmons was booked on a charge of probation violation and aggravated assault for allegedly throwing a tray at a jail officer.
