Video: DMX Rides The Sling Shot

“G’s up!”

Everything about this video of DMX and his man on one of those Sling Shot rides in Orlando is incredible. The pre-launch pysch-up, the screaming, the level-off and then the realization that they’re being recorded. X should do a reality show where he just travels the country getting on insane amusement park rides.

Well no wonder Wayne shouted out Jay-Z on “D’Usse”. Despite their ongoing exchange of subliminals, Wayne seems to have no reservations about following Hov’s blueprint. TMZ reports that Weezy is set to launch his own sports management company, and he’s landed a pretty huge name for his first signing: super star soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo.

According to TMZ, Wayne’s as yet unnamed firm will work with PolarisSports (a CAA affiliated company) and GestiFute, which is where Ronaldo’s current agent currently punches his clock. The new venture will see Wayne’s organization repping the Real Madrid star for all US based branding, marketing and endorsement agreements moving forward.

Ronaldo seemingly gave credence to the still unconfirmed report yesterday when he sent out the following tweet while visiting with the Japanese prime minister.
