Hollywood actor interrupts Madam X set to tell her it’s not hip-hop enough

Holy Ship, the annual electronic party at sea, hosts a slew of
artists from across genres for each sailing. For its 11th
sailing, talents like The Black Madonna, Denis Sulta and Madam
X were invited on board and brought into the ship’s

During Madam X’s anticipated set on the journey’s final day on
Friday, January 12, the UK star was placed between artists 4B
and GLADPVCK on a “hip hop” party lineup. Despite the titled
billing, Madam X took the stage to play her sounds of grime,
drum ‘n’ bass, techno and an assortment of welcomed UK flavor
to a packed room.

Sometime during the set, an uninvited guest by the name of
James Earl grabbed the mic and turned down the fader to
proclaim: “What is this shit? What’s happened to my hip hop
room? Where’s my trap at?” He was quickly booed off the stage
for his unwelcomed opinion and Madam X continued on, addressing
the incident later on Twitter and Instagram.

“To the ass-wipe who felt the need to come on my set, grab the
mic and slew my music for not being “hip hop enough” – you can
jog on,” she wrote. “I am not responsible for incongruent
programming. Although I was placed on the “hip hop” stage, I
will always do me and play my shit. Never in all my years of
DJing have I experienced such distasteful, tacky behaviour.
Only want positive vibes when I play.”

A quick check on the official Holy Ship lineup confirms that
James Earl was not an artist or a DJ playing on the ship or in
the room hosting the “hip hop” party. Earl is listed on online
film database IMDB as an actor with appearances on shows like
musical sitcom series Glee, Scream Queens and
a small stint in a 2009 flick about male cheerleaders called
Fired Up!
