Manhattan Federal Judge Jed Rakoff ordered him to home confinement following the failed drug tests.
Shortly thereafter, DMX asked Rakoff for approval to travel for work.

Rakoff decided Friday that DMX could travel to Atlanta for a gig — as long as he was with a sober coach at all times.
DMX’s Atlanta job fell through, however, he decided to enter an inpatient substance-abuse program, according to his lawyer, Murray Richman. “This is a voluntary move on his part,” Richman told the Daily News.
