DMX Doesn’t Like Drake…or Skinny Jeans

Dark Man X is in the slammer, but his voice is still being heard.  In an interview with Vibe.com, DMX opened up about his feelings on hip-hop in the present, his relationships with his peers, and my favorite: skinny jeans.  Check the highlights below:

On the current state of the rap game:

“I’m not gonna disrespect anybody or shout anybody out, but it’s sad the s**t I’m seeing here. All we got is 106 & Park in jail. And it’s like ‘wow, this is the Top 10?’ Like really?”

On Drake (he admits he likes Nicki Minaj):

“I don’t like Drake. It’s nothing that he did to me, He actually is talented. He’s very talented…He has a little wordplay here and there, but when I see him and hear him it’s like—‘Money, I’m not rockin with that.'”

On skinny jeans:

“Those are baby clothes. What are you shopping at Baby Gap???”

On Ja Rule (Their voices were once compared and they had beef.  Allegedly, it was squashed at this year’s VH1 Hip Hop Honors):

“he’s just not the type of nxgga that I would hang with. He never was the type of nxgga I would hang with.”

On being at Def Jam during Jay-Z’s reign:

“I had the show. And somebody in the crowd was like ‘What’s up with Jay-Z’ and I was like ‘F**k Jay-Z’. And it ended up all over the place. So he called Swizz, Swizz called me, and he tells Swizz ‘Yoo, why your man dissin me? I was gonna do a song with him’—Coulda, woulda, shoulda. F**king bulls**t. I don’t wanna hear that s**t.

On ending beef with Jay-Z in their younger days:

“We realized when you’re young like that you sometimes mistake when you battle somebody for beef. But we realized, there’s no beef involved. I don’t even know you to not like you. We earned each other’s friendship. And we became good friends. We wasn’t hanging out all the time—we two different type of niggas. But you know, if I see him somewhere we hang out.”

DMX also revealed that once he is released from prison, he has an album in the works, a Belly sequel with Nas and Method Man, as well as a reality show that will cover his family life that includes 6 baby mothers and 10 children.
