DMX Attacked By Fan, Man Tries To Choke Rapper
The man jumped on stage with X and appeared to strangle him...
DMX is thought to have narrowly escaped injury after he was attacked by a fan while on stage on Thursday night (5th January).
According to TMZ, the Slippin' hitmaker was performing at Cáfe Sevilla in Long Beach and was just about to start his second song, when a man jumped on stage and appeared to try and strangle the rapper.
The unidentified fan, who was bald and wore a white t-shirt, is seen in a video of the incident lunging at the hip-hop star, putting his hands around X's throat.
Security then rushed the stage to tackle the man, putting him in choke hold and dragging him away from DMX.
Not one to be phased by such an episode, DMX ordered the DJ to restart the music, shouting to the crowd: "We don't stop the music for s**t!"
