DMX has been making the media circuit over the last few weeks in promotion of his new album “Undisputed” which is in stores now. Throughout the interviews the media and fans kept asking regarding his hate towards Drake and if him and Jay Z were cool again.
“I don’t have a problem with him,” he said after a long pause, “but we ain’t high-fiving in the locker room or chest bumping.” One fan on Twitter then posed the ultimate question: Would DMX and Jay-Z ever put their differences behind them long enough to collaborate? “Anything’s possible,” was X’s response. “I won’t be the one to say ‘no’ or stand on something ignorant like ‘no I will never’ — that doesn’t make sense. I don’t see it happening, but anything’s possible.” (MTV)
“Drake,” X said when asked what artists he feels are not talented. “He is [talented], he has talent but it’s kind of redundant. It’s kind of the same all the time, sounds the same, to me, personally, it’s like an annoying sound. [noises] It’s like a washing machine. [noises] Or a dryer. [noises] You know what, I don’t even have to explain why. I just don’t like what it is and I’m kind of feeling some kind of way about the fact you’ve commissioned, you’ve been blessed, you’ve been given the opportunity to do the Aaliyah album yet you don’t include anybody that she worked with personally? What part of the game is that? I’ma tell you why I’m mad, son! There’s a reason why I feel the way I feel. How do you do that? How do you disregard what this woman did, what this beautiful angel did.” (MTV RapFix)
“No, no,” X said when asked if he likes Drake. “I don’t like anything about Drake. I don’t like his f*cking voice. I don’t like what he talks about, I don’t like his face, I don’t like the way he walks, I don’t like nothing. I don’t like his haircut. I might just — let me shut up. Stop right there.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
