DMX is definitely back these days, making his rounds. His latest interview comes from an appearance on New York morning radio show The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1 — where he speaks on a variety topics such as his disliking of other artists, who he does like and rumors the public has been hearing over the years.
During the candid chat, the legendary rapper spokes about his conflict with Def Jam, which he says stems from Jay-Z being the artist and the Def Jam President.
X said he feels that Jay-Z tried to “eliminate the competition” during his time as the label’s president, which resulted in the relationship deteriorating.
“I see what’s really good. You trying to eliminate the competition,” the rapper said Jay. “At first you retire, then get me off the label and now you’re back rapping again. That was just some bullsh**. You know what it is. That was getting rid of the competition.”
As far as other rappers, DMX revealed that he’s not feeling Drake, despite his status as a superstar, saying he’s doesn’t like “anything about Drake” and added that he is not impressed by Rick Ross either.
“I’m just not impressed, real talk,” DMX said when asked about Rick Ross’ lyrical skills. “He’s aight, man. He talks about eating and girlfriends too much. How much can a n**** eat? How much weed can you smoke? Let’s talk about something else… you got the Maybach, the Aston Martin. Ok! I see a whole ‘nother side of the coin, son.”
When asked, point blank, if he like Drizzy, X replied, “No,” adding: “I don’t like anything about Drake. I don’t like his f***ing voice. I don’t like what he talks about. I don’t like his face. I don’t like the way he walks. Nothing. I don’t like his haircut … let me just shut up…”
So, who does DMX like? J. Cole… saying, “J. Cole is nice.”
