DMX Explains Why He Needs to Be Off House Arrest to Feed His 15 Kids

X going to give it to you.

X also doesn’t believe in condoms.

X’s lawyer, Murray Richman, fired off a letter to a NY federal judge Monday asking that his client be allowed to travel to Atlanta, Vegas, Philly, and L.A. for some August/Sept. gigs … the most immediate being Thursday in ATL.

X’s probation officers want the judge to turn thumbs-down, because they think it’ll interfere with his drug program. Murray tells TMZ … he’s negotiating to get X out for some of the upcoming dates, saying the guy’s got 15 kids to feed and needs to make a living.

X is on house arrest after failing multiple drug tests while on bail for Tax evasion.
