DMX Records Going-to-Jail Video ... With a Beat

7/27/2010 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hours before DMX turned himself in to police in L.A. yesterday, the rapper shot a 45-second goodbye video for his fans ... and even included a beat-filled soundtrack for your listening pleasure.

Speaking at approximately 892 words-per-minute, X explains his plans to turn himself in for a probation violation stemming from a reckless driving conviction back in 2002 ... and in a perfectly timed PR move, he does it all to the tune of his new unreleased song "Time to Get Paid."

According to the rapper -- who is currently serving his 90-day sentence -- the mea culpa is "one of the first steps toward regaining everything I've lost."

And in case you didn't notice -- X was in such a hurry after this interview, he didn't even have time to change his shirt before taking his mug shot.

lol WTF was that?! He shouldn't have made this video, at least not in the state he was in. Damn X, you need rehab bad... the judge should have just sentenced him to rehab.
