Hood Sh*t: DMX’s Backstage Rider For Los Angeles Concert Revealed


Despite dealing with some very harsh legal allegations recently, DMX put on quite the show in Los Angeles at the Belasco Theater on Wednesday night. However, every artist usually has a list of demands that they NEED in order to perform to their full potential. DMX’s full backstage rider has been revealed, and we can’t help but laugh at his demands! The Yonkers-native had special requests for both backstage and his hotel room comprising of:

1) Three bottles of Hennessy
2) Two boxes of condoms for the hotel room (smart, play it safe)
3) A carton of Newport cigar
4) A wide assortment of fried chicken
5) An assortment of candy including Now & Laters, Oreos, Sunkist, Starburst and Skittles.

Usually we hear wild things like an all-gold toilet seat with diamonds in it but leave it up to good ol’ X to keep it hood and take it back to the basics.

(This is the second time Tune and Mannie shared a stage in the last week, as he performed with him in Miami during Ultra.)

Christina Milian was in the building supporting her boo as well…so I’m guessing her daughter Violet was with daddy for the Easter holiday. Check out pics and video from the night below!
