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.

I am here as the agent the sold DMX to Soulclay Entertainment to hold this charity event. I was at this event and actually brought there to give advice on promoting this event which was never used. John Guterres President of Soulclay Entertainment did all of this mess. Fact 1: John G informed the limo driver to drive DMX around till 11pm to be late. Fact 2: John G informed the security, there as no CSPD in the house, not to let DMX on the stage to perform. Fact 3: The sound guys were told to cut all sound so if DMX got on stage he was not let to perform. Why you ask would a promoter do this. Answer: He did not take the advice of a 15 year producer and advertise for a Grammy Award Winning Artist. This cause him to not make enough money to cover the rest of DMX's Guarantee which is still owed $7,500.00. I know this all as fact due to being his agent and I am still owed $1,500.00 for the booking fee. If anyone wants to dispute this please email me. When charges are fied against Soulclay Entertainment TNZ will be the first to know. Now Gary update this report please as we spoke today!
