The war of words between New York rappers Fredro Starr and DMX just intensified with the one-time Ruff Ryders leader now lashing back at him and questioning Starr’s street credibility.
Responding to recent disses shot his way by Starr, X simply downplayed them and poked fun at the rapper’s stature.
DMX is returning fire in his war with Onyx rapper Fredro Starr — telling TMZ, he ain’t one bit afraid of the guy’s death threats … claiming, Starr’s “a midget” who “can’t even reach my knee.” X tells us, “I am not worried about him … All he is is a sitcom Moesha gangsta. He should just stick to being a reality gangsta cause that’s about all he’s good for.” (FYI, Starr appeared on the show “Moesha” back in the 90s.) X is blowing off the drama … claiming Starr “is just trying to use me to get back in the music scene.” (TMZ)
Late last week, Starr publicly addressed where his problems with X stem from.
“Right now we’re going to clear the whole DMX beef or whatever y’all want to call it, situation, whatever it is,” Fredro said in a video. “First of all, your man on [Power 105.1’s] the ‘Breakfast Club’ trying to make me look like a sucker for love type of dude and it ain’t nothing like that. Whatever he talking about happened ten years ago. First of all. Everybody laughing, everybody thinks it’s a joke up there but when my name came up in the conversation, I didn’t take it as a joke. That’s the reason why there’s a situation.” (Forbez DVD)
Starr then went on to say X got a woman pregnant he introduced him to.
“Ten years ago, I went to a premiere, DMX premiere, he called me, ‘Yo, come to the premiere.’ I went to the premiere with the shorty, with a groupie, with a jump-off, I gave him the jump-off. I gave him, like, this is you, son. Make a long story short, he got her pregnant. I ain’t got nothing to do with that. But why is my name coming up in the conversation in the radio, using my name to catch laughs off? It ain’t nothing like that.” (Forbez DVD)
Fredro’s freestyle diss popped up on music blogs earlier in the week.
“A lot of n*ggas think they Ironmen, they lying men,” Fredro raps. “Just roll me in the lion’s den/Talking about real hip-hop/I am him/A lot of haters want the fire to end, don’t want the fire to wind/But I’ve got the fire and desire to win/Won’t stop until I cop a f*cking flying Benz/This n*gga X talking sh*t right/If he ever try it again/Huh, he be in front of the firing pen/If his crew front, be a lot of dying men/At the funeral, family and crying friends/Let’s get back to money/We go together like tire and rims/You wanna ball, we can go as high as the rim/So much weed smoke, time to call the fire men/We got the cocaine, n*gga, flying in/Any way you want it, any way you need it, my n*ggas be supplying them/When the new J’s came out, I was buying ten…” (16 Bars W/ Firestarr)
