Want to watch rapper DMX grunt, curse and scream in a new video? There's no music involved, it's just the 43-year-old reacting to an amusement park ride called the Slingshot at Magical Midway Thrill Park in Orlando, Florida.

The video from TMZ shows DMX (real name Earl Simmons) and another man strapped into the ride which promises one of "the most heart pounding, adrenaline pumping, exhilarating thrill ride experiences in Central Florida."

Before being catapulted over 390 feet above ground at 3-5 G-forces, DMX psyched himself up by yelling "It's some scary s---!" five times, as well as "What?! Whaaat?! Get it!" He also put his head back, gritted his teeth and grunted "Uh uh uh uh uh" several times.

"It ain't nuttin. It ain't nuttin," the man in the second seat said with his head down and his eyes closed tightly. And then it was clearly somethin.

As the ride shot into the air DMX screamed, grunted and cursed some more while clutching a thick chain around his neck.

"We did that. We did that," the husky-voiced rapper/actor said as the ride slowed. "We gotta have a stone-cold ice face ... like we wasn't scared." He then noticed the camera and joked, " All the screamin' all the yellin' ... we did it for the camera, yo!"
