DMX's Hilarious Reaction on Ride

If your Tuesday may be gloomy and/or boring, you must watch this video of DMX on a ride.

DMX might be one of the most intimidating rappers out there, but when it comes to scary amusement park rides, he's not so intimidating. TMZ released a video of the rapper on the Magical Midway Sling Shot in Orlando, Florida and well his reaction was priceless.

You'll just have to watch it for yourself. Before the ride even starts, DMX yells, "This is some scary shit!" He then begins making his signature dog growls and he starts screaming his face off as the ride starts. He yells "WHAT" nonstop which will have you rolling on the floor laughing.

Before realizing he's on camera, he reassures us that all his yelling was for the video. "We did it for the camera! We Wasn't scared!" he yells.

Yea, yea...we're sure it was all "for the camera."
