It’s never pleasant to see DJ having his set interrupted, whether it’s because of gear failure, or especially that being done by a rude person.
Apparently, actor James Earl, was not a polite person. According to earlier reports, this incident occurred while Earl was attending a hip-hop themed party during the last day of the Holy Ship! festival. He decided that DJ Madam X, who arrived on stage between fellow artists 4B and GLADPVCK, just simply wasn’t playing the right music for the job.
“What is this shit? What’s happened to my hip hop room? Where’s my trap at?” He reportedly asked into the microphone before being promptly booed off the stage.
Madam X was quick to fire back about the incident on her Twitter account, saying:
“I am not responsible for the incongruent programming. Although I was placed on the ‘HipHop stage’, I will ALWAYS do me and play my shit. Never in my nine years of DJing have I experienced such tacky behavior. Only want positive vibes when I play. Love to the crowd for booing him off.”
She then adds, “Hope you crawl back into the ignorant hole you came out of. Meanwhile I will continue my USA TOUR to New York, Dallas & El Paso. Peace.”
Here is his apology.
@DJmadamX much love to you. I apologize if I offended you in anyway. The rant wasn’t about you specifically It was about the Stage. Our job as DJs is to do our homework! There was no reason for you to have to play to an empty room when it was full like this. pic.twitter.com/PqHDGc0IS2
