As the Internet continues to dry its eyes from laughing at DMX getting caught running around a Detroit hotel without underwear on, his representative has stepped up to offer an explanation.
While some bloggers may worry X is suffering from mental sickness or worse, the rapper’s rep Domenick Nati claims the entire incident was a joke.
“DMX was [at] a Detroit hotel with his DJ (DJ NonStop) and his road manager (Montana) before his performance with Eve and Lil Kim on August 31st. X and the team were killing time at the hotel before the concert and dared each other to streak in the hallway. No one was aware that security cameras were rolling and it was just a playful dare between friends.” (Statement)
The all-nude everything footage surfaced across the Internet early Monday (September 9).
Stop. Drop. Your pants. TMZ has obtained footage of DMX at a Detroit hotel last weekend … RUNNING NAKED LAPS AROUND THE HALLWAY … just because he felt like it. The footage begins with DMX walking around a hotel hallway in just his boxer shorts, socks and house arrest ankle bracelet … while a hotel employee removes room service from one of the rooms on the floor. All of the sudden, X ducks behind a corner with a mischievous grin on his face — drops his shorts — and launches into a full ass naked, dong-out sprint. (TMZ)
The one-time platinum-selling rap star had reportedly acknowledged his nude dash.
Eventually, X returns to the starting line and grabs his drawers … and then casually walks back toward his room as if nothing ever happened. It’s pretty hilarious. We reached out to X … who said he just “felt like” doing a nudie run that day … adding, “Imnotashamedofanythingigot” (read: “I’m not ashamed of anything I got.”). Hey, at least he wasn’t arrested for anything that day … (TMZ)
Recently, a photo of X reportedly making a cameo in an upcoming Chris Rock movie surfaced.
Despite yet another recent driving arrest, DMX has surfaced for an upcoming movie role alongside Chris Rock. In a photo shared on his Instagram, X is seen side by side with with Rock right after they shot a “jail” scene. Details on the film’s title and full plot are still scarce. We’ll keep you updated as we discover more. “The scene is comedic which allowed X to show off his versatility as an actor. X and Rock played well off each other and Rock’s character even gets DMX to lead the inmates in a song. There are more acting roles to come and DMX is also planning on attending the Sundance Film Festival in January.” (Miss Info TV)
