DMX Goes Ballistic at Charity Concert

10/19/2009 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He was late ... to a very important date ... and when he arrived, DMX went nuclear on security guards who wouldn't allow him perform at a charity event this weekend.

DMX: Click to watch
The rapper got into a screaming match with security when he arrived to a Colorado Springs concert nearly 90 minutes after security was told he was scheduled to perform. In the video, both sides can be seen going off on each other.

X, his bodyguards and fans eventually got into a shoving match with security in front of the stage, while the crowd -- who had already been told he wasn't going to show -- chanted "DMX! DMX!"

He eventually got on stage -- but the sound system was reportedly turned off so he couldn't perform.

Only DMX could turn a charity event into a melee.

God it's so good to not know people like him and his crew. I love the people in my life and they are nothing like DMX, he and his crew are bad seeds and they need to go back to the hood to which they fit in at. DMX is a DRUG ddict with a very low IQ and his only way of solving a thing is through violence and being aggressive.....straight stupidity. This is one of the reasons black people can't have functions and are treated differently, when push comes to shove they only act with fist,guns and screaming. Must suck to not know how to talk to people and use your mind, how to make something good out of something bad, how to find an answer without riots.

He's an idiot. He was 90 mins. late. I gather they didn't want him to take the stage because they didn't want to pay him because it appears he broke his contract. If he begins his show then he can argue he completed his obligation. DMX is a BUSTER!!!! People need to stop hiring him.

Starting a riot is against the law. Put the thug, DMX, behind bars.

I like BMX. It's kinda like riding motorcycles, but on a smaller scale.

Leave it up to the media and TMZ to create a bias view of what really happened. Most people that have made a negative comment about this have only seen TMZ's version of this video. There was no riot, but there were many upset fans. DMX did not cause anything, but instead, tried to do what any dedicated artist would do and give the fans what they came to see. Instead, he was met by security that decided to abuse their power and not "secure" the situation. Instead their actions caused most of the "melee" that was seen in this video. I personally know quite a few poeple that were a part of this event, and they're stories all seem consistant, and are to the contrary of what TMZ has done to this video. And so everyone knows, as a performer myself, this is what happens when a promoter tells his artist one thing and his security another, things go bad, and the media gets their hands on it to make a quick dollar off of someone. But good or bad, publicity is still publicity. Nice try TMZ, but you didn't make a beleiver out of me this time.

Oh and by the way, I will agree with some of you guys and say that DMX, as a multi million dollar artist, could have acted more professaional. but the same goes for the promoter of this event. This could have been avoided if he would have interviened instead of letting things get out of control. in any footage that you will find, you will not find the promoter anywhere trying to reason with DMX or defuse the situation.
