Dre Wanted To 'kill' Vibe Awards Assailant....

Music mogul DR. Dre wanted to "kill" the man who punched him in the face at the 2004 Vibe Awards, but is thankful his security team prevented him from doing so.Trouble started at the hip-hop awards ceremony, where Dre was being presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award, when the veteran rapper was struck by Jimmy James Johnson.After security pulled the assailant off Dre, Johnson was repeatedly stabbed by Young Buck - real name David Darnell Brown - during a mass brawl. Buck pleaded guilty to assault likely to produce great bodily harm was sentenced to three years probation in December 2005.And Dre now admits he was so incensed by the humiliating incident, his initial reaction was to end Johnson's life.He says, "The punch was nothing - I went onstage right after; it didn't affect me."The only thing that was on my mind was, 'Kill him.' That's it. Fortunately, that didn't happen. My security guys (stopped that from happening). They got him out of there."It was just f**king stupidity, that's all. But he paid for it dearly. I mean, he got a cracked skull and a punctured lung. So, hey.".
