Perception is reality and the perception of troubled legendary MC DMX is that of a dysfunctional man due to his recent negative press. Earlier today (September 9th), TMZ released footage of X running through a Detroit hotel.

According to DMX’s official statement, the entire incident stemmed from a dare between him and DJ NonStop. The rapper claims to have been unaware of the hotel lobby having security cameras:
DMX was 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.
DMX’s house arrest has also been lifted and he is cleared to work.
