DMX dropped some lyrics on Monday at court — about his well-known defense attorney, Murray Richman also known as “Don’t Worry Murray.”

“We don’t worry with Murray Get you out of jail in a hurry/When the government is trying to bury you,” he rapped after a short appearance in Manhattan Federal Court for his tax-evasion case.

On Friday, DMX, whose actual is Earl Simmons, pleaded not guilty to federal charges that he neglected to cough up $1.7 million in income taxes. Simmons is facing up to 44 years behind bars if found guilty on all 14 counts.

Despite this, Simmons energetically exited the courtroom, talking to reporters and rapping about his lawyer.

DMX pleaded not guilty to evading $1.7 million in federal taxes.

The longtime mob attorney — who has earned the moniker “Don’t Worry Murray” — has also represented other famous rappers such as JAY-Z.

“He’s like a father to me,” DMX added.

Simmons, who said he was in custody overnight at Manhattan Correctional Center after his Thursday arrest, was also excited about his notorious neighbor there — Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

“I was right next to him. Yeah, we were talking — I’m just kidding,” he joked. “He’s over there, I could have talked to him!”
