DMX Explains His Detroit Hotel Streaking Incident

DMX tells TMZ why he went streaking in a Detroit hotel hallway last month.

Yesterday (September 14), DMX explained why he went streaking in a Detroit, Michigan hotel hallway August 31.

“What do you mean what was I doing streaking?” DMX said to a TMZ representative at Los Angeles International Airport a/k/a LAX yesterday. “I’ve got a big-ass dick and I like to show it.”

DMX then offers an additional explanation. “It was a dare,” he says. “It was a dare.”

The latter explanation jibes with a statement released earlier this month by DMX’s publicist, which said that the incident was nothing more than “a playful dare between friends.”

DMX’s streaking was caught on video thanks to a security camera placed in one of the hotel’s hallways. In the 30-second video, DMX is seen walking the halls in a pair of boxers. He later enters another hall, takes off his boxers and then proceeds to streak his way past what appears to be a hotel employee.

The statement released on the emcee’s behalf also says that DMX and his companions were unaware of the security camera present in the hotel hallway.

In the video from LAX yesterday, TMZ also asked DMX what his parole officer thought of his streaking. The rapper says that he does not have a parole officer.

DMX then takes a piece of paper from the TMZ reporter. The rapper says that the TMZ rep should be embarrassed because his handwriting looks like chicken scratch.

DMX reads one of the questions written on the paper, which asks him to explain how hard it is to put on socks with an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet. DMX has been arrested several times this year on charges that include driving under the influence and driving without a license. DMX also served seven months at an Arizona State Prison mental health unit from 2010 to 2011 after violating his probation.

“That’s a good question,” DMX says to TMZ. “You’ve got to work the sock under the ankle bracelet.”

DMX was likely flying in to Los Angeles in order to make an appearance on the talk show of Dr. Phil. The interview is scheduled to be taped tomorrow (September 16) and will discuss DMX’s relationship with God, among other topics, according to

    "plus touring, movies, music and all the drama they get in gets to these celebs" There have been scores of bigger artists who were raging alcoholics, drug users, etc. They needed help to get their life back on track. Why should DMX be any different? He's not making movies anymore, and the music is nowhere near where it was in his prime, so there are no excuses left for this dude to use. He's a no good junkie who needs his ass kicked.

    Life's to short to get caught up in some dumb shit. Wake up one day, 40 years old on some bum shit. Classic lines from DMX from the song life is what you make it ft Nas. I hate when these rap dudes don't take there own advice.

      u clearly dont know what you talk about. you think you can tell that by looking at him? oh really? then you would know that he did drugs since 14, but did you see it back in 1998 1999 or 2000? no so stfu. Dude just slips off and on the drugs and its mostly coke or woolies, and alcohol. plus touring, movies, music and all the drama they get in gets to these celebs.

    I hate watching videos like this with X. This is a prime example of too much abuse to the body and brain. He was my favourite entertainer and now just feel really bad for the guy. He will never be the same... And its a shame because when ppl ask my top 5 of all time, I put him in there. Old X was a real dude.
