GREER, S.C. — Rapper DMX has been arrested in South Carolina for driving without a license.

Authorities say the 42-year-old, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was arrested at 1 a.m. Wednesday after an officer saw him at a gas station in Greer. Simmons already faced several charges of driving without a license, so deputies say an officer pulled him over after watching Simmons leave a gas station, get into a car and drive away.

Simmons was released after paying a fine. It isn’t clear if he has an attorney.

Simmons was arrested in a Phoenix suburb in 2011 after a trooper clocked him driving at 102 mph. He had recently finished a stint in prison on probation revocation for failing to submit to drug testing and driving without a license.

Hmmmm. Sounds like a repeat

Hmmmm. Sounds like a repeat offender with no regard for the law. A little wing clipping seems in order.

Ode to Earl

I be Rapper DMX and I be near,
The man put me in jail in Greer,
Dog ain’t safe in a gas station lot,
Can't even use the pot,
I may not have a license,
But I have a nice car,
My rap gonna take me far,
I ain’t never gonna get a license,
I ain’t never gonna work,
Phoenix couldn’t hold me,
I got credibility,
Wam, bam, Sam,
Scam the real man,
DMX, DMX, DMX
