Ruff Flyers: DMX Screams on Orlando Sling Shot Ride

Hardcore rap mainstay faces fears at Orlando's Magical Midway

That's how Ruff Ryders. . . whoa! DMX might be one of the most intimidating hip-hop artists on the planet, but he's not immune to the terror of a wild amusement park ride. TMZ has located a video of the gruff-voiced rapper screaming his brains out onboard the Magical Midway Sling Shot in Orlando, Florida – and the results are beyond hilarious.

Rockers and Their Pets: DMX

"This some scary shit!" X screams at the start of the clip, nervously fidgeting before blast-off. The heavily bleeped video is hard to transcribe, but once the rapper launches into mid-air, he unleashes a spree of hardcore gibberish: "WHAT?! WHAT?! WHAT?! Ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh! WHAT?!" Halfway through his aerial voyage, X starts to regret his decision, shouting "Hurry up – before I change my mind!" But once the Sling Shot lands back on Earth, he finds himself overcome with a sense of pride: "We did that! Gs up!" Indeed, kind sir. 

This is only DMX's latest brush with viral video glory, following an amazing clip where he uses Google for the first time (check his killer hunt-and-peck typing technique) or the legendary Reading Rainbow mash-up featuring a handful of the rapper's explicit sampled boasts.

DMX and St. Vincent will co-headline Portland, Maine's Kahbang Festival, which will be held from August 7th to 10th. Earlier in the year, promoter Damon Feldman announced plans of a boxing match between DMX and George Zimmerman, though the event was cancelled in February.
