Mopping Up Messes

... at Waffle House

11/2/2011 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

DMX mopping floorsDMX sentenced himself to hard labor yesterday, relieving a lowly Waffle House employee from mop duty ... and performing the filthy chore himself!

The photos were snapped at a WH in Greenville, South Carolina -- where the rapper stopped in for some late night eats ... after a Halloween party at a nearby strip club.

The rapper tells us, one of the workers -- who was mopping the floors at the time -- said he was a big fan ... and X was so touched, he grabbed the mop and finished the guy's job for him.

The Dog tells us, "I was in a good mood and felt that I would do that for him since it was 4am and [the employee] had been working all night."

The rapper adds, "The minute you get too big to mop a floor or wipe a counter, that’s the exact minute you have life f**ked up."

It was a nice gesture but had he slipped and been injured the employee would have been in deep doo-doo and there would've been a firing and some serious litigation involved. Mopping was nice, a big fat tip would've been nicer.

some ppl are such idiot ass odd balls! how is he capitalizing off of being a nice guy by reporting this! he didn't call a press conference at the flippin waffle house! we're all surrounded by such angry monsters...way to go X, i'm not a famous rapper, don't have a grammy, & i STILL would not take a mop from an employee to do their job...takes a big person to see past their B.S., & X got alot of B.S. to deal with, so thanks for showing ppl do matter...Good Luck DOG

A hundred years ago DMX came into a grocery store that I was working at and when the lady in front of him in line couldn't pay for his groceries he paid for her. The lady didn't even say thank you! He was nice though. I don't know his music, but I'll always remember him for being nice.

I'm from Greenville, SC and he has been here for like 3 months now. No one is really sure what he is up to. He's always out playing pool at one of the clubs in town. Strange!

That's class. DMX may be "hardcore", but he's got a ton of class. Good man!
