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!

New TikTok house under fire for “copying” Wave House member reveal

A new TikTok house is under fire after fans have accused them of copying Wave House with the way it has gone about launching and revealing its members.

Icon house is a brand new UK-based creator collective and since its launch on Monday, October 19, has garnered a quarter of a million followers on TikTok already. The house’s social media accounts are doing a slow reveal of all the creators, one-by-one.

So far members are known to include former Love Island star Luke Mabbott, Georgia Harrison from The Only Way is Essex, Footballer Elis Watts, and model Josh Ryan. There are allegedly four more creators yet to be revealed.

However, fans have noticed that the choice of reveal bares a very strong resemblance to the Wave House, another UK-based content house which launched in September and has already gathered almost three million followers.

The Icon house is slowly revealing its members one-by-one.

The Wave House members, including Kate Elizabeth, Spencer “elmofilms” Elmer and Carmie Sellitto, were unveiled using jewel-encrusted masks in a series of videos staged at their £5 million mansion.

Upset fans hit out at the Icon House on the UK version of TikTok room. One person wrote: “Embarrassing how they didn’t even try to hide the fact they copied the wave house.” Another person added, “literally copying the wave house masks.”

The Icon House was formerly known as My House Ldn and has since rebranded after a scandal. Popular TikToker Kristen Scott, a former member of My House Ldn, accused one member of sending her sexual messages when she was underage. She posted several videos exposing the messages and speaking out about the issue and the old content house has since fallen apart.

Icon house appears to be recruiting reality star influencers, a strong way to quickly gain clout. It remains to be seen if Icon House can truly challenge Wave House as far as followers go.
