DMX

ATTACKED ON STAGE

... But Doesn't Miss a Beat

1/6/2012 6:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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 someone hopped on stage, and appeared to attack 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.

Geez, TMZ - there you go again, making big, inflammatory headlines over minor incidents. This guy doesn't exactly "get his hands around" DMX's neck. Looks more like he jumped on stage and tried to hug him.

And what's with TMZ's endless fascination with these craptastic rappers, anyway? Between the Kardashians and all these so-called "music artists," you'd think nothing else was going on in show business.

His security team was on that guy so fast. I had to replay over and over to see the actual incident. Hahaha! It was like he appeared one second and the next half second he was gone.
