Fans are really trying to get their hands on DMX these days as seen in new footage of someone attacking the platinum-selling hip-hop artist during his Long Beach set last night (January 5).
Although the melee was brief, footage of what went down has begun circulating across the Internet.
A crazed fan got his hands around DMX’s throat for a split second at a concert in Long Beach last night …. and it was all caught on tape. X was performing at the Cáfe Sevilla in Long Beach … and was just about to start his second song when some dumb a** hopped on stage and attacked the rapper. Security rushed right in — and put the stage intruder in a MONSTER choke hold — then wrangled him off the stage. The DJ briefly stopped the music during the melee … but X immediately ordered him to get back to spinnin’ … yelling, “We don’t stop the music for s**t!” Ruff night. (TMZ)
X’s show comes just days after appearing at rap star Lil Wayne‘s Miami concert.
“Tonight is history ’cause I got a f—ing legend standing behind me,” an excited Wayne tells the crowd from the stage. “When I turned around, I saw this ni—, I was like, ‘Stop the music and let these motherf—as know that DMX is in this b*tch.'” It’s a rare thing to see Weezy star struck, but he did his best to explain to the crowd just how happy he was to see DMX in the building. “I remember when I was 17 years old, I was on the world’s biggest hip-hop tour. It was called the Ruff Ryders/Cash Money tour, and you was rockin’ that sh–,” he said to DMX. “This is f—ing crazy, it’s crazy,” Wayne added, relinquishing the mic, letting DMX take front and center to perform a medley of hits including “Get At Me Dog” and “What These B*tches Want.” (RapFix)
Prior to M.I.A., X was spotted rocking a holiday party in New York.
During Funkmaster Flex‘s Christmas Party, Earl Simmons or DMX to you and I, surprised the audience with his appearance and the following stage performance. Partygoers at the Santos Party House were in disbelief, as DMX ran through some popular songs off his lengthy catalog. X also spat an acapella verse showing he is still with nice with [the] mic. He also announced new music is on the way in the new year, with a new project titled Undisputed scheduled to drop March 26th. (Soul Culture UK)
In addition to new music coming this year, X and his wife are reportely appearing in an upcoming episode of VH1’s “Couples Therapy.”
On December 8, 2011 the couple began filming a new reality show entitled Couples Therapy that will air on VH1. The program consists of twenty-one days of extensive relationship therapy, both as an individual couple and also as a group. The group therapy will be with other celebrities such as Linda Hogan, Angelina (“Jersey Shore”), and Vienna and Kasey (“The Bachelor”). “Therapy is always a good thing,” says Domenick Nati, DMX’s publicist. “Tashera has been there from the beginning and I know that she means a lot to Earl.” (Press Release)
