Rapper DMX, who has largely been out of the spotlight for some time, now, seems to be doing whatever he can to get back in it.
TMZ obtained video of DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, running laps naked in a Detroit hotel last weekend. The video shows the rapper walking out of his hotel room in his boxers while room service is finishing up behind him, standing next to the elevators, taking off his boxers, and going for a jog around the halls completely naked. The room service attendant didn’t even appear to witness this display.
Although it’s unclear whether or not DMX saw the security cameras in the hallway, it’s very apparent that he could care less about it all.
According to reports, the rapper decided to run around the halls naked “just because he felt like it” and apparently said, “I’m not ashamed of anything I got.”
DMX rose to stardom in 1999 with the song “Party Up” and has since had some other hits, as well as appearing in a number of movies.
More recently, DMX has landed in the news for various arrests that include driving without a license, driving while intoxicated, and possession of marijuana. The rapper has been arrested three times this year, with the most recent incident occurring after South Carolina police found drugs in his vehicle.
The latest bizarre stunt by the once famed rapper lead many to question his motives, but the rapper insists it was simply because he felt like going for a naked run.
TMZ has publicly released the video.
