New York rapper DMX really, really, really wants to go head to head against JAY-Z. The hip-hop veteran has continued to make a major plea to battle Young Hov in a hits battle.
X To The Izzo
New footage has emerged of X downplaying his interest in battling fellow rap veteran Eminem. Instead of entertaining a Marshall Mathers bout, the Ruff Ryders head explained why he wanted to go up against JAY.
“Em don’t want it,” X said in the footage. “I’d rather go with my arch nemesis – he don’t gotta come outside, he can sit in the house. He scared to go to the basement and play some records? … It’s a celebration, we’re celebrating music.” -DMX’s Instagram
Recently, New York rapper N.O.R.E. shared a huge shocker. N.O. said producer Swizz Beatz told him about an interest in Em facing off against X.
“This moment is so Legend !!! 3 minutes before this @therealswizzz CALLS X and says Eminem is down for that smoke and X SAY HE CAN GET BUT I STILL WANT JAY HAHA SO CLASSIC BEHIND THE SCENES S**T SORRY IF I WASNT POST TO SAY NOTHING but I had to DMX VS SLIM SHADY??? What y’all think??? I’m riding wit the DOG!!!” -N.O.R.E.’s Instagram
Wait, There’s More
In a recent interview, DMX talked about going face-to-face against JAY-Z. Despite Young Hov having more than 10 albums to his name, X said he would take on his longtime pal.
Before You Go
Last month, X held a virtual Bible study session on his Instagram Live. He read from the Holy Book, including a verse from Ecclesiastes, and preached to listeners while professing his faith.
“I saw something else under the sun: In the place of judgment – wickedness was there, in the place of justice – wickedness was there. I said to myself, ‘God will bring into judgment both the righteous and the wicked, for there will be a time for every activity, a time to judge every deed.’” (Ecclesiastes 3:16)
“God put it on my heart to speak. This is new to me. This is not what I do. I ain’t with showing everybody what I’m doing at every minute. That’s just not me. That’s not how I get down. You see me when you see me. It is what it is. That’s how I get down. I ain’t gon’ change. I love who I am. I’m God’s child. We all are. ‘A time for crying, a time for laughing, a time mourning and a time for dancing, a time for throwing stones, a time for embraces, and a time for avoiding embraces.’ ‘A time for embraces, and a time to avoid embraces.’ What! Come on. At the end of the day, at the beginning of the day, it’s going to be God’s will. If you try to understand why He does, what He does, you’re just going to end up with a headache. Just do the right thing. As long as you got God, it’s gonna be alright.”
