was either wasted, exhausted, or both following his DUI arrest Friday morning … because he passed the hell out once he got inside the squad car — and our sources has obtained dash cam footage of the entire bust.

our sources broke the story … the rapper was popped in South Carolina around 3AM Friday after police determined he had been driving under the influence.

It wasn”t immediately clear whether X was busted for alcohol or some other substance — but based on the dash cam footage, it appears to have been for alcohol … and not just because X was a little sleepy.

In the footage, the cop asks X if he”s been boozing, and X says he had one drink — but later it sounds like he admits to drinking “4 or 5” (the audio is pretty bad). Despite the drinks, X insists he”s not too drunk to drive. The cop doesn”t buy it.

X was booked for DUI and hauled to a nearby station. He was released from custody roughly an hour later.

Bonus: you have to see how X handles his itchy nose with his hands cuffed behind his back. Classic.
