BREAKING NEWS: DMX’s Bark Returns With The 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards

I was watching the BET Hip-Hop Awards, hosted by Mike Epps, as I’m sure many of our readers were doing as well, when I was shocked to see DMX hitting the stage with Swizz Beatz. With his frequent visits to prison and numerous hardships, this was the last person that I expected to see grace my television screen. Coming out with energy reminiscent of performances in his prime, DMX performed a few of his classic songs. The crowd stood up in amazement at the sight of one of Hip-Hop’s most beloved and talented artists redeemed in front of their eyes. This has been a long time coming and I am relieved and grateful to have witnessed it. Seeing DMX doing what he does best felt like a battle that had been won and a hurdle that had been overcome. We can only hope to see more moments such as this from DMX in the near future.

WHAT’S NEW: Diddy Apologizes For Ciroc Incident

During this past weekend’s BET Hip Hop Awards weekend in Atlanta, Diddy found himself in an altercation with a non-Ciroc drinker. He began lashing out at the club goer because he was not drinking the liquor that he endorses. This had the potential to become a physical altercation if renowned rapper T.I. had not stepped in to rectify the situation. As many celebrities have done in the past after acting out of character, Diddy took to Twitter on Tuesday to express his apologies for his actions.

Diddy’s apology:

“I’m a child of God and I should be better no matter what someone says to me. I’m sorry for the ignorant way I represented myself and us.”

If this is your first time hearing of this incident, see the video below. We can only hope that after this experience, Diddy has learned from his actions.
