Embattled rapper DMX was granted a continuance at his probation revocation hearing this morning at Maricopa County Superior Court.

DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was on probation following his release from jail this past July. He was arrested at his home in Cave Creek on November 18 and is accused of violating the terms of his probation. According to the arresting officer, the alleged probation violation is "ongoing use of cocaine, use of Oxycontin without a prescription, failing to submit to drug testing, failing to participate in counseling programs, failing to make payments, and driving on a suspended license."

At today's hearing, DMX's attorney, Glen Allen, asked Commissioner Jeffrey Rueter for a continuance to appear before Commissioner Mulleneaux. DMX's new court date is Thursday, December 16. In the meantime, he'll continue to be held without bond at the Lower Buckeye Jail.
