Don’t ask DMX a question if you don’t want to know the honest answer. One of the reasons we love him is because he lacks a filter no matter what camera he’s in front of. Apparently his feelings toward Drake haven’t changed much since his February interview with 105.1’s Breakfast Club. While talking to RapFix’s Sway, DMX praised Lil Wayne for his success, but wanted it known that he’s still not feeling Drake. Not only does he not like Drake, he also does a funny impersonation of him. “He has talent, but it’s kind of redundant,” he said on the live show. “It’s the same all the time, it kind of sounds the same. To me personally, it’s an annoying sound. Like a washing machine, or a dryer. I don’t even have to explain why, I just don’t like what it is.” If you’re wondering why he’s going so hard on Drake, he at least has a reason.
Granted DMX doesn’t like Drake’s music, he’s also has another bone to pick with the Canadian rapper. “I’m kind of feeling some kind of way about the fact that you’ve been commissioned, you’ve been blessed, you’ve been given the opportunity to do the Aaliyah album, yet you don’t include anybody that she worked with personally,” he said. “What part of the game is that? There’s a reason why I feel the way I feel. How do you do that? How do you disregard what this woman did?” All the drama surrounding Aaliyah’s posthumous album is too much. It’s not likely that Drake will engage in a beef with the hip-hop OG. But is it wishful thinking to hope they battle it out on wax? Maybe Drake can make DMX a believer.
