Hip hop rap artist DMX stood demurely, his hands clasped behind his back, as a judge adjourned his case for allegedly violating the conditions of his release following a car crash last year at John F. Kennedy International Airport.
The 34-year-old rapper, who has acted in films including ''Never Die Alone,'' ''Romeo Must Die'' and ''Cradle 2 the Grave,'' showed up for court Tuesday wearing cream-colored sweat pants and jacket, work boots and heavy silver chains around his neck and wrist.
He didn't speak as Judge Dorothy Chin-Brandt granted a defense request to adjourn the case to Oct. 25.
But outside court, DMX said, ''they are all ludicrous,'' when asked about the charges against him.
He hammed it up for the media, doing a dance down the steps of the Queens Criminal Court building.
DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, pleaded guilty last December to smashing into a gate with his vehicle at Kennedy Airport in June 2004.
He was sentenced to a conditional discharge, meaning further violations within a year could land him in jail. Since then, he has been cited twice for traffic violations.
