*Trouble-magnet rapper DMX has been arrested more times than he has fingers and toes.

His most recent stint behind bars came after he was apprehended for not paying child support to a baby mama who lives in Buffalo, New York.

After spending six months in the slammer, DMX is finally a free man–again. He told reporters that he was never made aware of the child support he owed.

DMX was released Friday and greeted by his attorney Dominic Candino, but he’ll be tossed back in jail if the court determines he knew about the money problems all along and chose not to pay up. As for his plans now that he’s free — X told a TMZ correspondent that he’s ready to get back in the studio and record new music. Hopefully he can stay out of jail long enough to do what he does best: bark into the microphone.
