The pot of water has boiled over for rapper DMX as records show that he is in a $1.5 million tax debt.

Records also reveal that The Dark Man was hit by his own nesting grounds as the state of New York filed a $8,343 tax warrant against the rapper and his wife on Feb. 15, 2007, in the New York County Clerk’s office.
The numbers continue to rack up as the IRS filed a $663,554 lien against DMX on Sept. 10, 2007, in the Maricopa County (Ariz.) Recorder’s office.
