Coolio To Enter The Ring…

DMX was set to fight Eric Martinez in an upcoming celebrity fight in Alabama, but DMX is out and Coolio is in. DMX originally agreed to the terms of the fight, but his people later said that DMX will only participate if he is guaranteed the win.

DMX’s manager, Nakia Walker, submitted an addendum to the original contract saying “Event Promoter and Management agree that [DMX] is scheduled to win Boxing Challenge.” and “All parties agree this event has been scheduled to occur only in fun and that the artist involved is not a professional boxer.” The manager cited that DMX is “a hip hop artist, not a boxer.”

The fight promoters, Thunder Promotions, refused to sign the addendum because they never agreed to fix anything and that this is a real fight which DMX agreed to. DMX threatened to back out and the promoters chose rapper Coolio to replace DMX while they also prepare a lawsuit for breach of contract. Thunder Productions said that “Coolio has been much easier to deal with and he is going to take this seriously.”

DMX was supposed to perform at a charity concert last weekend in Colorado Springs, but when he showed up over 90 minutes late, security would not let him perform.

Fans were told that DMX was a no show, but when word spread that DMX was in the venue, the crowd chanted “DMX! DMX!” A fight broke out between DMX, his bodyguards, fans and concert security when DMX tried to take the stage. Once everyone calmed down, DMX went on stage, but the soundsystem was already turned off, so DMX could not perform his set.
