US Rapper and Actor. Reader, Mr R informs me he met DMX once at a music awards and talked to him. His assessment closer to 5ft 8.
Comment on the Height of DMX

Manny said on 24/Nov/15
I'd say DMX is no taller than 5'7" and may very well likely be 5'6" or slightly under, he doesn't look that tall. He was some 3-4 inches shorter than 5'10" listed Chris Rock (who might actually be no taller than 5'9").

Slightly taller than 5'6" listed Ja Rule (which some argue is 5'5" range)...but DMX is in timberlands, without them, he'd be no taller imo

5'10'' is absurd. He looked only 2 inches shorter than 6'4'' Dr. Phil when they greeted each other on Dr. Phil's show.


Dr. Phil isn't 6'4".
MD said on 12/Nov/15
Where did 5'11" come from? Well, I'm sure it's because it's obvious that he's at least average height. Here he is with 5'9" Lance Bass:

Now, he does have an advantage here with footwear and Lance's lean, but it appears to me that he's at least average height. 5'6" anything is absolutely ridiculous.
BillyJean said on 9/Nov/15
According to Katt Williams, DMX is 5ft 6.5......and that's IF Katt is really 5ft 4.5 as listed here.

Where did this 5ft 11 listing for DMX come from? I haven't seen his height listed in any of his many mugshots lol.
Sonny Black said on 31/Oct/15
5'10 at the most.
Joe said on 10/Oct/14
He's easily 6 inches shorter than MGK who claims 6'4". Which means he's possibly around 5'10".
Billy Dawg said on 17/Sep/14
Next to Chris Rock, he possibly can't be taller than 5'8"! What's your verdict on this one Rob?

[Editor Rob: in that one photo he can look a few inches shorter]
jtm said on 20/May/14
he was listed 5'10 here before and that was still very generous.
tribbles said on 14/May/14
I stood next to him once and LOL that dude isn't a hair over 5'6". Does he seriously claim 5'11"?
Theodore said on 23/Feb/14
DMX looks nowhere near 5'11" on film. More like 5'8" or 5'9".

Has a loud voice, though.
MD said on 6/Nov/13
You are delusional if you think he's over 6'0", and I don't need to see any video.
Anon said on 3/Nov/13
MD, paused this video at 8:20:

Unless DMX wears boot lifts, DMX is over 6 feet tall!
MD said on 30/Oct/13
Bull, Anon. That would make him 6'2". He's not even 6'2" in his thickest boots. He's closer to 5'10" than he is to 6'4". Get real.
Anon said on 26/Oct/13
5'10'' is absurd. He looked only 2 inches shorter than 6'4'' Dr. Phil when they greeted each other on Dr. Phil's show.
Idra said on 2/Aug/13
Katt Williams said DMX was two inches taller than [Katt] but that may have been for comedic effect. Surprised none of his mugshots provide his height.

Ralph said on 28/Mar/13
I just saw DMX on sixth avenue. He was wearing timberlands and was about my height, putting him around 5' 9''.

He barked and yelled "WHAT?!" at me, by the way.
KC said on 1/Nov/12
I played pool with DMX at a Hollywood bar a few years back. He was wearing sneakers and stood the exact same height as me...5'10".
MR.HEIGHT said on 10/Feb/12
this guy wishes he was over 6'. doesnt even touch 5'11" with his lifts on. Hes a weak 5'8" outa bed
Willo said on 28/Sep/07
Aiit peeps...Look to settle this...Look at the right hand photo - If X is wearing Timbs in that photo with Glenn he would have an inch or so on Glenn, if Glenn stuck on a pair of Timbs at 5'8" he'd be catching up to X, then if you imagine Glenn 5'9" or 5'10" with those Timbs on...nah X ain't no taller than 5'10" max. Nas is listed at 5'8" and there isn't much difference in them. No matter what his height X is the man...the best rap artist in existence, actor, idol...
miles smiles said on 28/Sep/07
It's not just Kat Williams...DMX is kind of notorious for being short to average. A friend of mine from Brooklyn who's stood by him swears he's 5-8. But the proof that he's not short are the above photos with Glenn. If he has 2.5 inch lifts in his Timberlands, he could gain about 4 inches, but that seems ridiculous. Glenn, is DMX a serious lift candidate, or is it his retractable spine voodoo alone?
glenn said on 22/Sep/07
i understand what you mean leonari.cant say i dont get it,cause i thought he was 5-9ish myself.turns out he is 5-11ish.yes,possibly a bit taller than 5-11.i never understood how he looked 6ft next to seagal.until i developed my pics,only then did i realise.i kinda noticed something fishy with the posture going up and then down.i thought i was imagining it.he defeats himself with his posture.
leonari said on 21/Sep/07
Man this guy gets a lot of crap for being short when he is actually quite tall at least in my books 5'11"" is tallish rather than shortish. Even friends of mine often said man this DMX is short. Yesterday I saw a Standup by comedian KAT WILLIAMS where he goes "that n***** is 2 inches taller than me" he is my height. which is ridiculous (and not funny) since this guy is like 5'4 or 5'5" max.
glenn said on 21/Sep/07
furthermore he walks with a strange hunch.weird posture.
glenn said on 21/Sep/07
dmx is 2 inches taller than 5-10 nas in belly and a few inches shorter than 6-3 to 6-5(depending on footwear)steven seagal.dmx never looks as short as i do next to seagal in my pic.alot of men stretch out their posture and gain 2 inches.skinny or fat.i have 5-11 friends i swear are 5-9.
Viper said on 20/Sep/07
Mr R, Glenn says that this guy has a retractable spine and that he looked 5-9 to him originally. Plus he sure does look 5-11 easy in these picture.
Mr. R said on 20/Sep/07
I showed a dvd in my class the other day of Katt Williams, the pimpcat comedian. From 2002, he says that when he moved to LA, he discovered that most of Hollywood was fake. His example was DMX, and he noted that DMX was short and "was my height." Later he said that DMX was about two inches taller than him. Katt is listed at 5-5, which may be even streching it a bit. Therefore, according to Katt, DMX must be about 5-7 to 5-8, which supports my eyewitness account from 1999. I can't explain the pictures where he looks so much taller. (Maybe its the Timberlands!) But I stand by my account!
James said on 18/Aug/07
In his films looks 5ft10 in these pictures looks 6ft
billlllly said on 2/Aug/07
wanna no y he can look 5,9 coz theres a thing use gangstas do and thats bend ow knees wen we walk and stand i do it heaps its to look less intimedatingthen wen they leest excpect it bam ur big

[Editor Rob: lol, that sounds pretty mad.

I used to be in a gang myself back in the day. Called ourselves the ENS....or Elite Ninja Squad.]
Austrian said on 30/Jul/07
definately not below 180 / 5'11 if you ask me
glenn said on 25/Jul/07
for sure are correct.
dmeyer said on 24/Jul/07
hey glenn if he can look 5'9 then he is the stallone of the rappers
glenn said on 23/Jul/07
i agree dmeyer.but he can mysteriously look 5-9 too.
dmeyer said on 22/Jul/07
can look 6 ft with steven seagal and almost as tall as 185 washington so 6 ft but he can look the same as 178 arquette so is 182 like 5'11.5 possible for him rob
Brad said on 13/Jul/07
Hey Mr. R didja see him in Vegas a few nights ago?
Anonymous said on 18/Jun/07
DMX wears Timbaland boots all the time though...they probably give an extra 1.5-2 inches so he is prbably 5'9 or 5'8.75
Mr. R said on 10/Jun/07
Was I drunk that night in Vegas? Not EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS, STAYS IN VEGAS!! I stand by my 5-8 eyewitness account, but don't know how to explain Glenn's pic.

Alex said on 11/May/07
I thought he was 5'9-5'10 in the past but with Glenn he looks around 6'0.
Sean John said on 6/May/07
DMX looks about 6'0 to me
Brad said on 25/Apr/07
I think Busta looks like he n Flav smoked 5 pounds of chee chee.
glenn said on 25/Apr/07
a least dmx is down to earth with me.snoop is ok.busta is another story.
Brad said on 24/Apr/07
My father grew up in Yonkers...yer either real good or real bad there.DMX is a baddy. Snoop smokes too much cheeba & Busta doesn't have much between his ears cept some truck anchor pieces hanging off it he paid too much for....he's an Ace Frehley sideways.
glenn said on 24/Apr/07
i have that album on vinyl.yeah,whats up with dmx,snoop and busta always in trouble?
Brad said on 23/Apr/07
Guy needs a driver...gets too many tickets.
Viper said on 22/Apr/07
DMX's first album, Its Dark and Hell is Hot is a rap classic.
Brad said on 21/Apr/07
Wears cool bling. I'd put him on the point if NY vs. LA starts up again. Yonkahs (New Yawk talk) and big dogs on big chains equals: tough.
Viper said on 20/Apr/07
Though you cannot trust mugshots with 100 percent certainty. They could have measured with shoes on or just told their own height. But DMX does look 5-11 minimum to me now.
glenn said on 20/Apr/07
at least they got this one right.nas is another me.
Brad said on 20/Apr/07
NYPD arrest record has him listed at 5' 11". He looks it. Yonkers rules!
Viper said on 20/Apr/07
A lot of people saw this guy as 5-7-5-8 in pictures as well as in person. I cant figure it out at all. I mean he only looked 5-7 with Mark Wahlberg in that one picture. Yet this dude looks over 6-0 in the picture on the left.
glenn said on 19/Apr/07
he looks near 6ft around seagal.
The Horse of FUNK said on 18/Apr/07
Apparently this guy has the ability to stretch his spinal chord out to 6' and retract it to 5'7". lol I like Viper's 5'7" estimates though, I've always pegged him as a bit extreme and ridiculous.
glenn said on 18/Apr/07
he is so mysterious;he even looks 5-9 to me in the flesh,until he stretches his spine out.
dmeyer said on 18/Apr/07
i alwais new dmx wasnt under 5'10. to 5'10.5 since he wasnt that mush dworfed by seagal wish is hard
zazaz said on 18/Apr/07
Well, on the left image, DMX looks even five inches taller then Glenn. On the right image, DMX looks three inches taller then Glenn. I'd say that DMX is at 5' 11" or even 6' in height.

[Editor Rob: its funny reading this thread from the bottom 2005]

Rob, you can delete that old photo, if you'd like. I don't really see it helping, and on second thought could be really misleading not knowing the ground level.

But, since the old Getty links got deleted, I would like you to post these:

With 5'7.5" Pauly Shore

With 5'10" David Arquette

MD said on 24/Feb/07
A strange photo, but Mark Wahlberg, who, even in his best lifts can only look 5'9.5" with DMX back in 2001:

We can't see their feet but they HAVE to be on different levels, but it really doesn't look it.
Glenn said on 29/Jan/07
No worries Rob.I emailed you not knowing you replied.what gets me is this genius has the time to post that.meaning he is stupid,jealous,or has no life.or all.yeah,Walhberg was on to me.thats why he wore lifts.these celebs tell you jerkoff,huh? you know them? funny,theyre on to me but my camera is on fire! never rests buddy! and I have another part time job,2 girlfriends,friends and multiple hobbies,yet my camera keeps catching images of celebs.gee,they are ON to me.Clint Eastwood and Lauren Bacall in 2 weeks,not to mention scores others.RACK,RACK,RACK.and the photos stack.let me show you what a man that needs to be on meds can say hello.I DARE you.and size me up and or bring the tape a kiss for you honey, :-o.
Glenn said on 29/Jan/07
Ok you know me? do you know why I was at this location? time stop and measure me.and furthermore the 1300+ pics here show that Im think I take photos for this site moron? Ive been taking photos for 17 years.what makes this story sound like a crock is that for 1,celebs are NEVER on to me.2,I AM 5-8.if I was frantically walking around, it was for a REASON you idiot.a reason beyond your comprehension dickhead.obviously I was staking out a a man next time and say your a little fact Ill tell you were Ill be next.Rob,if he is up for the challange,let him reply.otherwise dont let this moron on the site again.

Amen to that anonymous.
Anonymous said on 16/Jan/07
Plus when you take film pics, unless you expose them yourself, the guys at the photomat may keep copies.
Glenn said on 15/Jan/07
Thats also true Rob.
dmeyer said on 15/Jan/07
i agree rob one times i had a nap at 8 to 10 pm so i was at night 5'11.5 and i looked the same height a 6 ft friend of mind who was up since 6 am
Glenn said on 14/Jan/07
Yeah,Rob.its a nervous feeling when your dicking around wondering if your Harvey Keital pic came out,when you asked him for 14 years or so.what sealed it for me was I got a pic with 120 year old Jerry Lee Lewis,4 months ago,and his eyes are wandering and the photo has a red exposed streak through it.couldve been ALOT worse.if he dies,Im happy with it.luckily,he is coming back soon.and even worse,a month before that horror,a REAL horror happened.2 photos in a row taken with Steven Adler of Guns&Roses,who is of poor health,didnt come out.mysteriously exposed.I had a few in the 90s too,exposed.3 photos,3 different occassions,on Lily Tomlin,and Fred Coury of Metal band Cinderella,didnt come out.what are the odds? things could be worse.I know someone that had that luck 3 times with the difficult THATS bad.Digitals snap photos slow,though there fast now.

[Editor Rob: even with a good camera, when you give it to an assistant or someone else to take a pic, I guess you are in the hands of them to not screw things up.
saying that, I've seen some 'professional' photographers at photo opps turn out sh**tty blurry, overexposed/underexposed garbage.]
Glenn said on 14/Jan/07
Im very rarely at a doctors office.does the average person go monthly? or should I go for the site? not trying to be a dick,but realise your request can be silly.however,now that I have a great working digital,and if a girl sleeps over,Ill have her hold tape the tape measure for cant promise anytime soon.well,maybe today funny enough.most peoples true height will never be the summer,I wake around 2pm.sometime ealier.every other time its 3:30 to 4:30.hit the bed between 7am and 8am.

[Editor Rob: your ditching the old film cameras?

your 5 hours behind here, but I do notice many times you seem to be up very late, hence, you'd be rising later in the day.]
Anonymous said on 14/Jan/07
"Do I have time for this nonsense"?
Well apparently Glenn, you have time to take 1000's of pics and be on this forum, so 1 more pic
at your dr's office isn't insane. Listen, I'm not trying to be mean, you seem like a cool guy.
It's just with all this controversy on height, if we know your height for sure (not saying your lying)
then that will clear some things up.

(But somethings, like Brad Pitt's true height will never be clear)
Anonymous said on 14/Jan/07
i think glenn is betwwen 5'7.5 and 5'8 he looks only 4 inches shorter than ford who was aleast 6 ft then also he looks taller than beyonce similar height with leto since he is 171 at night and 173 morning so he is average 172 cm 5'6 dont make sens for glenn more like 5'7.5 the real height is the one at 2 pm 5'11.75 is my morning height but i claim 5'11 glenn i do believe you are about 172 and you look easy 173 in some pics maybe because of 1.5 in heels

[Editor Rob: I think its been mentioned if you are waking up 6-7 hours later - correct me if wrong but Glenn might not rise till afternoon? - then the 7-8am risers will be at lowest point at night, but those rising later might not yet be...just something to consider.

I know one day at an event they had a photo op scheduled for 11am, I had been up driving and walking for 11 hours solid, so was lowest height, but the celebrity might have had 1/4 inch advantage on me...]
Glenn said on 13/Jan/07
First off,do I have a height chart in my house? 2nd,do I have time for nonsense? 3rd,why should I?,4th,one must be blind if they cant tell from the 1000 or is it 1200 pics up.
Anonymous said on 13/Jan/07

If you are "5'8" as you so claim, how about a barefoot picture of yourself next to a height chart?
You've taken 100's of pics of yourself, why not 1 more and prove to the world you're right?

[Editor Rob: ask yourself if in the majority of pics if glenn appears like 5ft 8 or not? Taller than dennis hopper, robin williams etc?

Tricky to do full length pic with height tape on your own.]
Glenn said on 12/Jan/07
Thanks for backing me on that Legend.prooves Im not 5-6.even though DMX truly gives the illusion of 5-9.
Glenn said on 9/Jan/07
I went through that too shredder! you should post this in the Sly page.
the shredder said on 8/Jan/07
I have a friend that claimed 5'11 and i always thought he was no more then 5'8 or 5'9 ... but when I took a pic standing next to him , he proved me wrong because he looked no shorter then 5'10 in the pic ! i peg my friend at 5'10.5 on the dot !!! ... also , I have a cusin that only claims 5'8 and I swear hes no shorter then 5'9 ! even in pics with me he looks 5'9 - 5'10 range , although never claimed over 5'8 flat ! I also saw them barefoot countless times !
dmeyer said on 8/Jan/07
5'11 make sens since he looked a lidl shorter than tom arnold who is 6 ft 1 i met him
Andy said on 4/Jan/07
no way DMX is 5'11, i'm 5'11 and i live a few doors down from him and have seen him a few times, hes no more than 5'9 tops, unless he has a ridiciulous hunch
robbie d. said on 23/Dec/06
In Slippin', dmx says:

"I'm ready for the world or at least I thought I was
baggin' niggas when I caught a buzz
for thinking about how short I was "

i guess that's an admission of bein made fun of for bein short as a kid, though it's possible he could have hit a growth spurt later...
Derek said on 17/Dec/06
Seagal is really 6'3" dmeyer. 5'10" minimum for DMX, maybe 5'10 1/2". Looks a little under 5'11".
dmeyer said on 16/Dec/06
5'11 is possible since he didnt look to short near 6 feet 4 seagal
Lucky Luciano said on 7/Dec/06
DMX must still have a bounce house in Teaneck. I see him all the time. It's funny because alot of women think he is Mekhi Phifer. He doesn't respond well to that.
Mike said on 4/Dec/06
Woah DMX is like LL Cool J, im confused. For DMX i heard 5'9 and 6'1 nothign inbetween, but the Glenn pics put him inbetween those heights. 5'11 is the inbwteen heights of 5'9 and 6'1 though
Glenn said on 2/Dec/06
What do you look like Phil? try taking as many photos as I do,in high pressure situations.youll have all kinds of looks Einstein.

[Editor Rob: i deleted that little comment]
LuckyLuciano said on 29/Nov/06
5'8" is right he MUST be wearing lifts and Timberland shitkickers. I see him ALL THE TIME at Sunny Delights Bakery in Englewood NJ and a chinese buffet in Teaneck across the street from the armory and around town. Always looks high as hell and smells like weed. That pic is baffling^^^^^.
Glenn said on 22/Oct/06
I know Smoke.
Smoke said on 20/Oct/06
I am not being funny but he looks like he is 5"11 -6ft in the pics above.
Glenn said on 18/Oct/06
One of the mysterys of my life! swore he was 5-9,5-10.I have to ask him.
Alex said on 17/Oct/06
Like Viper said he looks 6'0 on the left, 5'11 on the right but I've heard of 5'9-5'10 listings of this guy. I am unsure about him.
Glenn said on 12/Oct/06
Hojos was there 4 years ago.could still be.
Brad said on 12/Oct/06
Looks 6' tall. He's from Yonkers. I wonder if that Howard Johnson's is still there next to the Cross County Shopping Center. My $ is still at the harness track there.
Glenn said on 10/Oct/06
I always thought he was 5-9.
Diverse said on 6/Oct/06
i thought he was shorter. like 5'7"... saw a picture of him getting arrested and he looked small. possibly the cops arresting him were like 6'2"... also because the comedian katt williams (who is very short, around 5'4"), was joking about how DMX was only a couple inches taller than him.
Viper652 said on 6/Sep/06
He looks 6-0 on the left, more 5-11 on the right.
JK said on 6/Sep/06
looks Definetley 6ft, if Glenn is 5'8'' that is. coz he has 4 inches on Glenn.
Glenn said on 6/Sep/06
You never know,he could be 6ft.someone mentioned him listed at 6-1.Ill be damned that I never asked him.I figured it wasnt needed as he looked 5-9 to 5-10.he and Sly might hold the title for retractable spines.
dmeyer said on 5/Sep/06
even if they are 1.4 they arent elevators since most people wear 1 to 1.25 that add only 0.25 to 0.5 inches

[Editor Rob: yes, not huge, I'm just saying what I found a pair to give. I don't think Glenn is in less than 1 inch trainers these days, so they might be very close in footwear?

It becomes noticeable advantage when the other person is in something like a converse or racing thin shoes like hugh jackman wears a fair bit, then you've got a nearly 1 inch advantage]
JK said on 5/Sep/06
Louie, if he had 4 inches on Glenn that would make him 6'0'', coz Glenn says that he is 5'8''
dmeyer said on 4/Sep/06
he looks 4 inches on glenn possibly 5'11 also alwais wearing 1.3 inches tim boots so no elevator he wears them open

[Editor Rob: I finally borrowed a pair of larger heeled timberlands and done the old barefoot, then 'in shoes' measurement with them. I did measure as giving around 1.4ish inches advantage over barefoot, the insole wasn't that thick either...]
dmeyer said on 4/Sep/06
thanks rob i think he is aleast that since he didnt look too short near nearly 6 ft 5 seagal
Glenn said on 4/Sep/06
A true perplex.
JK said on 3/Sep/06
Yeah he could be a 6 footer, but by looking at the pic on the left he does look 5'11'' - 6'0''.
Viper652 said on 31/Aug/06
The picture on the left still amazes me. You would think DMX is a solid 6 footer.
Glenn said on 28/Aug/06
Seriously Rob,5-11.this guy could even be more.but like I said a million times before,I have friends that appear 5-9 that stretch out to 5-11.
JK said on 18/Aug/06
Rob i think you should upgrade him to 5'11''
Viper652 said on 17/Aug/06
Id say the picture evidence you have provided overrides any 5-8-5-9 estimate. Could he be wearing lifts? I think its possible, But, If the guy only wears Timberlands everywhere he goes I think he probably does not. Just my opinion.
Glenn said on 17/Aug/06
Yeah but with Mr R,there was other short claims too.such as myself seeing 5-9.
D.J. said on 17/Aug/06
DMX looks at the very least, 5'11". Time to upgrade him.
JK said on 17/Aug/06
Rob, why does it say above ''5ft 8 Glenn beside BMX''?? BMX??
Viper652 said on 17/Aug/06
I meant that he can look a totally different height in one picture to another. Glenn said the same thing as well.
Jay said on 16/Aug/06
In the opening of DMX's video "Party Up" it shows a profile of him as the bank robbery suspect and it lists his height as 6'1" and weight as 190lbs.
JK said on 16/Aug/06
Rob I think you should upgrade him by an inch. Viper, i didn't get what you meant by a shapeshifter.
Viper652 said on 16/Aug/06
You know, Im actually beleiving that 5-11 more and more. Maybe Mr. R was having a hallucination when he saw DMX at 5-8 tops jk :) This guy is a total shapeshifter though.
Viper652 said on 16/Aug/06
What is bizarre is DMX looks taller next to Glenn than Colin Farrel, and Glenn thought Colin looked 5-11 and DMX 5-9-5-10 in person.
J. said on 15/Aug/06
DMX was always listed and described as 5'11", since the release of his first album. I never thought he was any shorter until Mr. R's claim. So, maybe X is 5'11" after all. He does have bad posture and a slim frame ...does this give a shorter-than-5'11" impression???

[Editor Rob: whilst I agree with a number of R's claims, I find some of them to be underestimated. Actually, I hope Mr R is alright, not heard from him in a while :-/ ]
MD said on 15/Aug/06
What I do know is that he's always, always in Timberlands. I was just flipping through the channels a few days ago and he was on some personal reality show where the camera followed him around. He went to a shoe store and bought like 11 pairs of Timberlands. That was it in terms of shoes.
Glenn said on 15/Aug/06
It is my white sneakers with near 2 inch soles.we might have to change this guy to 5-11.
Glenn said on 15/Aug/06
There is tall DMX sightings coming through.maybe he is TRULY 5-11.its this kind of shapeshifting creature that had me wondering if Mel Gibson was telling the truth of his 5-11 claim.and maybe Depp is 5-10.maybe Sly is 5-10.Colin is 5-11,etc,etc.well we know Mel is most likely no bigger than 5-9.but these other height chameleans are shifting without the help of lifts and heels.
JK said on 15/Aug/06
he looks a solid 5'11'' man, and the pictures show the truth

[Editor Rob: the truth is on glenn's face, *shock and awe*...glenn you remember what shoes you had on? there is some pics out there where he does look legit 5ft 11er]
Jake said on 15/Aug/06
What? This doesn't make sense. How is he that tall next to Glenn?

Comparing these pictures with the pic of DMX with 5-7 Wahlberg is truly baffling. He gives Sly Stallone a run for his money.
Glenn said on 14/Aug/06
Oh,another thing.this friend of mine who was actually a bad judge of height,would hang out with DMX in 2000,and would never discuss height and never had interest.he once made a comment about how short DMX was.when I asked how tall,he said"your height".though he was a bad judge of height,for him to comment on DMX means he left a short impression.the mystery continues.damn.Im asking him next time and telling him this discussion.I cant take this.
Glenn said on 14/Aug/06
Whats amazing is,his official height I read years ago was 5-10.and I saw 5-9.Mr R saw 5-8.I then saw 5-10 when I stood next to him.developed photo and then its 5-11.WHAT FUKIN BURNS me is that I was going to ask him his height and was embarresed to do so.and I figured whats the point.he looked 5-10.I doubt he is 6ft or 6-1,but it makes sense too, cause he looks that next to 6-5 Seagal.I swear Im 5-8!

Glenn is 5'6'' IMO :P J/K
carl j said on 14/Aug/06
DMX has gotta be at least 5'11. I met him face to face once in NY and im 6'1.5 exactly he was wearing regular shoes and was almost as tall as me i was actuly suprised. he couldnt have been more than an inch shorter than me witch would make him about 6ft and his shoes add's like and inch so i would say 5'11 barefoot . .. no way hes 5'8 just look at him in the pic with glenn.
Viper652 said on 14/Aug/06
The guy actually looks more 6-0 in the pic to the left which is totally shocking. I mean, he looks taller there next to Glenn than the supposed 6-2-6-3 Bernie Mac!!! I guess its because he is closer to the camera. Ive never seen him look that tall before. Does look more 5-11 in the pic to the right where they are closer together. I cant explain it.
Glenn said on 14/Aug/06
In Mr Rs defense,he did look near my height from the distance.I have seen him once before looking 5-9.then when I got a foot near him and saw him near my friend who is 5-7,he appeared 5-10.then when I got the pics back,I was like WHOA,5-11.of course if you ask Frank2 who shrinks everyone,Im 5-6.DMX had gray Timbs on that seemed liftless,and he walked fine.he did have bad posture.very cool and down to earth.I was surprised at how cool he wonder he doesnt look like a midget next to Seagle.this would make perfect sense to the theory that Seagle is 6-2.5 and wears boots and or lifts to appear he does next to me.maybe Seagle was liftless with 5-10,5-11 DMX.

DMX is not 5'10". I worked for a television company 6 years ago and saw DMX, even stood next to him. I'm 5'11", and he's about 2 inches taller than me, putting him at about 6'1". It's true, he was in Timberland boots when I saw him; at that time, he clearly stood around 6'1".

Dmx looks 5'11.5'' to me in the pic at on the left, i always thought he was 5'10''.
dmeyer said on 14/Aug/06
he looks taller than farrell compare to you
dmeyer said on 14/Aug/06
he looks 3 inches on glenn maybe 4 so 5 11 maybe
Editor Rob said on 14/Aug/06
Just reading through some older comments this page, a few folk estimated him around 5ft 10. He certainly does not look like what Mr. R had thought, 5ft 8...

Here is a couple of snaps of glenn with dmx.
Glenn said on 4/Aug/06
Finally got 2 photos with him 3 weeks ago.he is one those short looking weak 5-10s.I thought he was near my height when I saw him until I stood next to him.Tupac was a 5-9 guy that would give a 5-10,5-11 impression to his heels.
dmeyer said on 3/Aug/06
he didnt look that small near seagal he is aleast 5 10
Viper652 said on 24/Jun/06
Apparently you didnt see my last comment MD :)
J. said on 24/Jun/06
One thing that I can say about DMX is that he's never out of his Timberlands. Never seen this guy in sneakers.
MD said on 23/Jun/06
Nope, he's not 5'7". Viper, you're estimates are always so extreme, and I though I was bad.
Viper652 said on 23/Jun/06
He clearly is no taller then 5-9. Hes either around 5-8 1/2 to 5-9 Max. I originally thought he looked at least 5-10 in movies.
Glenn said on 23/Jun/06
Thank you Viper.
Viper652 said on 22/Jun/06
He looks the same as 5-7 Wahlberg in that one pic.
Glenn said on 22/Jun/06
He is 5-9.I was ironically in court with him once.yeah,I know he looks 6ft on least mr R backs my claim.its not until you actually meet these people,that you can try to gauge some truth.
7 said on 21/Jun/06
rob DMX is not closer 2 5ft 8in hes like 5ft 10in to 5ft 11in
MD said on 18/Mar/06
Editor Rob, do you want to check thise one?

[Editor Rob: first comment back 23rd march 05 I mentioned the dmx/whalberg photo where I could see him looking short, although in most pics I don't think he can always look quite that short]
mefman said on 15/Mar/06
dmx was on the cover of XXL magazine about 7 years ago with Jay-z(6'1) and ja rule(5"8), he was ALOT shorter than jay and maybe a half inch taller than hes like 5"8 1/2
MeLiSsA said on 21/Feb/06
My friends saw him at the mall and have a pic w/ him and one of my friends is about a little taller than me 5'7 and DMX was a lot taller than her
Joeblo said on 26/Dec/05
Again, he's about 5'10. I'm not one to make people taller than they are, don't care
much for his music or lifestyle, but true is true.
nana said on 1/Sep/05
i did see him in Trippin with CameronDiaz n Rebecca Romjin.. they are taller than him like 1-2 inch.. they were wearing sport shoes at that time..
djkayris said on 11/Aug/05
dmx is like 5'11 i met him at jay-z's last concert in detroit and we almost saw eye to eye im 6'1-1/2" he was taller than i thought
Chris said on 29/Jul/05
I met Earl "DMX" in Chicago a few years ago. He was recording an album near the bar where I worked. I am 5'10 1/2" exactly and he was definitely shorter than me. I saw him numerous times. No taller than 5'9" probably 5'8"
Viper652 said on 6/Jul/05
Whats with all the 5-10 sightings on this guy?? Does he wear lifts?
Mr. R said on 5/Jul/05
I met DMX in Vegas at the Billboard Awards, on level ground, he was wearing regular shoes. I had to look down aways to talk with him, and I am 5'11.5". At best he is 5'8".
duc.k said on 4/Jul/05
Met him a few times in N N.Y he defantly around my height 5'10
rdogg said on 20/Jun/05
I met DMX after a concert back in 1999. I am 5'11.5 and he was a little shorter than me. I would say he is about 5'10.
Joeblo said on 14/Apr/05
Bullsh*t. He's 5'9 1/2 -5'10. I worked on "We Right Here" music video in 2001 in Baltimore and I helped him up a ladder so we were face to face and I'm 5'8 legit (just got measured on a medical scale) and he had a good 2 inches on me.
Mr. R said on 23/Mar/05
J, if I am truly honest, he seemed between 5'7-8" when I saw him. It was a few years ago at the MGM Grand in Vegas after the Billboard Music Awards. He walked past me, and I congratulated him on his win. At which point, he stopped came back and talked with me for a bit. He is 5'8" ON A GOOD DAY!
