Rapper DMX has been caught on camera sprinting naked around the corridors of a hotel.
The hip-hop star shed his clothes during a stay at a hotel in Detroit, Michigan earlier this month and video footage, obtained by TMZ.com, shows him leaving his room and running laps around the hallways.
DMX, real name Earl Simmons, drops his underwear for the dash and is seen wearing nothing but what appears to be a house arrest ankle monitor in the clip.
When asked about the incident by editors at TMZ.com, the star insisted he just "felt like" stripping off, adding, "I'm not ashamed of anything I got."
A rep has since issued this statement:
"DMX was in 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."
