Before he went to prison, DMX did not have much nice to say about hip hop. Preparing to return from behind bars, not much has changed. Yesterday, X said he still had issues with Jay-Z and revealed he is not a major fan of Drake.
During the peak of DMX's career, all of the rappers were on top of their game. Regardless of beef, or any other issues, everyone gave the best they had. DMX does not see this with the new crop of rappers.
While he revealed he is a fan of Nicki Minaj, X said the rest of the rappers are not impressive. He said the music he has heard, so far, has been sad. It has been like this for some time, as Nas evidenced and DMX promised to revive hip hop, in 2007.
DMX said his comments are not meant to disrespect anyone. X has kept up with hip hop because BET is among the only channels available in prison. Watching Nicki Minaj, DMX said his favorite song from her is "Did It On 'Em." But, for the most part, DMX has been surprised with the people who have made the top ten on "106 & Park."
