Jay-Z is getting candid.
The music legend recently appeared on LeBron James‘ HBO series ‘The Shop,’ where he shed light on DMX‘s incredible stage presence.
His words below…
“X is about to go, and I’m like, ‘I wanna see.’ And he goes [growls], and the f***ing arena goes crazy. First of all, it’s deafening, and I’m like, ‘Ohhh sh*t.’ He has a thing, like an Alize and Hennessey mix, it looks like blood, like he’s drinking blood, and he’s running back and forth [on the stage]. Halfway through the show, and then he takes his shirt. And the whole crowd goes wild. ‘Aaaaaah!'”
Hov recalled the emotional rollercoaster that the crowd went on. One minute they were screaming and then the next, they’re all in tears.
“He’s going nuts, right? And I’m like, ‘Sh*t.’ First the guys are going crazy, now the girls are going crazy. And then he gets to the end, and he starts a prayer. And now they’re crying, the whole arena is crying. And then [concert organizers] go, ‘OK, now you go.'”
