‘We were talking to each other right before he left,’ the inmate said.  ‘Someone asked if he could rap for us.

‘I had a cell phone and I recorded it as he was doing it.’

The source added that the star, who rose to prominence in the 1990s with fellow New York rappers Jay-Z and Ja Rule, got along well with his fellow inmates.

‘He was regular, considering the circumstances,’ they said. ‘He got along swell with the other inmates.

‘We were there together for six months and then he got shipped to another jail.

The source said that he and other inmates asked DMX about celebrity life and what it was like living in the spotlight.  

‘We asked him about the things that go on in Hollywood,’ they said. ‘When he was around the guys, he seemed normal.’

The former inmate said that this wasn’t the only time that DMX rapped behind bars.

‘He occasionally rapped for us,’ he said. ‘It was what he loved to do. If someone asked him to do it, he would do it.

The source said he grew up listening to DMX and said it was ‘amazing’ to ‘be next to him and see it up close’.  

‘I never saw him write tracks in prison but I think that he did. He was a popular guy. He was popular in the free world so you know he was popular in prison.’

The source added that he was saddened by the news of DMX’s death last week.

‘I felt bad. I grew up listening to him so it felt like a big deal.’
