Here’s what DMX would look like in Tekken 7

Tekken 7 is taking the fighting game community by storm, announcing its third season and introducing a new character at EVO 2019 – but that isn’t stopping fans from creating their own additions to the cast.

EVO 2019 saw the addition of Leroy Smith, a Wing-Chun master with unbeatable style and a mysterious backstory who is set to release later this year.

Leroy is already a hit with fans, with many in the Tekken community anticipating his release – and his inclusion may have inspired a fan concept that is similarly storming the fighting game community.

Rapper DMX posed for a series of photos with GQ in late September, donning a series of Matrix-inspired, early-oughts/sci-fi cinema looks – one of which seemed perfect for a Tekken fighter.

The internet is never slow on the draw to whip up a photoshop, and neither was Brockhampton designer “henocksileshi,” who quickly inserted one of DMX’s looks into the Tekken 7 character select screen.

Complete with a slick pair of sunglasses and a python, DMX certainly looks like he could throw down with the rest of Tekken’s cast – and even trade blows with Leroy Smith.

In fact, DMX’s “Tekken-inspired” look seems oddly reminiscent of scrapped Street Fighter IV character “King Cobra,” who was replaced in favor of Rufus – although we have to imagine his mix of Kung Fu and breakdancing would have been a sight to see.

Daigo Ikeno, Capcom“King Cobra” was a scrapped character for Street Fighter IV – but we’ll be darned if DMX couldn’t play the part!

DMX wouldn’t be the only rapper to take an interest in Tekken, either, should he respond to the photoshop: music artist T-Pain even cosplayed as Leroy Smith shortly after his EVO reveal, marking a major moment for the FGC in light of one of Tekken’s most hyped original characters yet.

Even rapper Snoop Dogg appeared in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, complete with his own stage and a theme song titled “Knocc Em Down.”

It’s no secret that rappers seem to love Tekken, and considering T-Pain’s stunning Leroy cosplay, it would come as little surprise if he ended up making a theme song for the character – nor DMX, for that matter!

Jadeyanh reassures fans she is “okay” after live Twitch stalker scare

Jadeyanh has reassured her Twitch fans she is “okay” and her father is “still alive” after a stalker called her, threatened her dad’s life, and demanded she expose herself live on-stream during the streamer’s Jan. 17 broadcast.

The popular Just Chatting star, Jade-Anh ‘Jadeyanh’ Ngo, broke down in tears and ended her stream early after a shocking phone call from her stalker midway through the broadcast.

One viewer, who confirmed they were watching the stream live when the incident occurred, reported that “a stalker called her” using her father’s phone number. Once on the phone, they demanded she “show her breasts on Twitch,” or they would hurt her dad. She then “realized her father was fine, and called the police.”

Dexerto has sighted the now-deleted VOD to confirm details.

“I’m okay and my dad is still alive,” she tweeted soon after ending her stream.

Her father, Harvey Hung Ngo, also replied to the Twitter post. He confirmed he was still alive and “will be [for] a long time.” Jadeynah’s dad also said “my daughter is strong, and no one can blackmail her, you asshole. We will get you!”

Jadeyanh confirmed these details in a Twitter post soon after.

“While streaming my ‘Dad’ called me. When I picked up, a guy demanded that I must show my boobs on stream. He said if I refused, he will slit my dad’s throat who, according to him, was lying tied up on the floor,” she wrote.

“He kept calling me horrible things and even dropped my address in order to terrify me even more. I tried to reason with him. After I refused to show my boobs, because he wouldn’t let me speak to my dad, he said he killed him.”

Her father, however, was “fine, asleep” when this phone call occurred. One of Jadeyanh’s mods wrote in her chat that they had “contacted [her] uncle,” who then contacted her dad. After seeing this, Jadeyanh hung up and called the police.

The Twitch streamer — who spoke in German for the duration of the on-stream call — said she shared the details so there wouldn’t be “any misunderstandings.”

“On that note, thank you everyone who was there to comfort me. Special thank you to my mod, Creditz, for going above and beyond. I am truly blessed to have someone like you in my life,” she added in a follow-up tweet.

“I’m still under shock because I believed for a couple of seconds that I let my dad get murdered because I didn’t flash on stream. Everything feels numb.”

Unfortunately, this is not the first time Jadeyanh has had a run-in with a stalker on-stream. In November, the streamer was repetitively delivered pizzas and had a fake gas leak reported in her building. She begged the stalker to “please stop.”

It is unclear whether these two incidents were from the same person.

Another streaming superstar, Rachel ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter, also had a run-in with a stalker recently. She was forced to ask Twitter for help, after a “delusional stalker” made hundreds of accounts in a bid to get her attention.

A number of other stars have also reported stalkers and “scary” incidents, including Fuslie, Sweet Anita, Gabbie Hanna, Mr Beast, Jenna, and more.
