Over a decade ago, DMX was one of the biggest names in hip hop, but as time has gone on, he fell from grace. Many names have come and gone since DMX's time. Currently, Drake is one of the biggest names in hip hop. Signed to Young Money, everyone wants to work with Drizzy.
Everyone, however, except for DMX. With his prison release less than a month away, DMX has spoken on several issues. When he was asked about Drake, DMX said he did not like him. Admitting he has no personal relationship with Drake, DMX said he is not a fan of his work. However, he did say Drake is very talented.
Long before his trouble with the law, DMX let it be known he had issues with Jay-Z. Early in his career, DMX collaborated with Jay-Z on many tracks. Many of these songs were released on their albums from 1998 to 2000. Following 2000, the three of them, Jay-Z, DMX, and Ja Rule, all went their separate ways. For years, DMX and Ja Rule had issues with each other, but they sorted things out two years ago.
The same cannot be said for DMX and Jay-Z. Back in November, before DMX went to prison, he had a performance. During this performance, he was asked about Jay-Z. Still angry with Jay-Z, DMX went on to say "fuck Jay-Z." Word got back to Jay-Z quickly and he called Swizz Beatz to have him calm DMX down, but was met with no success. DMX said Jay-Z asked Swizzy to tell DMX to say he did not mean what he said, but DMX refused because he meant what he said.
DMX went on to say Jay-Z informed Swizz Beatz that he had planned to collaborate with X. But, DMX said it is too late for "coulda, shoulda, woulda."
