If all you know or remember about DMX is his 2000 hit “Party Up (Up in Here),” or his extensive rap sheet, then this video, like his affectionate “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” freestyle, will likely surprise you.
Today, TMZ posted the footage, which shows the New York rapper riding the Sling Shot at Orlando’s Magical Midway Thrill Park. And while you might expect a stone-cold rapper like DMX to remain composed, hilarious (and typically aggressive) screaming ensues. In his defense, as DMX notes in the video, the Sling Shot does look like “some scary shit.”
