DMX’s distaste for Drake is no secret. The outspoken rapper has called out the Canadian star before, but he’s not finished. During an interview with Sway on MTV’s “RapFix Live,” X once again ridiculed Drizzy’s music.
“He has talent, but it’s kinda redundant, it’s kinda the sameall the time to me personally. It’s an annoying sound,” barked the New York veteran, who compared Drake’s sound to a washing machine.
He also criticized the Young Money MC’s participation in the posthumous Aaliyah album.
“I’m kinda feelin’ some kinda a way about the fact that you been commissioned, that you been blessed, you’ve been given the opportunity to do the Aaliyah album yet you don’t include anybody that she worked with personally,” said X, who had a close relationship with the late singer.
Blackground Records called upon Drake and his production partner Noah “40” Shebib to executive produce the album, which has come under fire from fans. Aaliyah’s longtime friend and collaborator Missy Elliott won’t be involved in the project, according to her manager Mona Scott-Young.
“How do you disregard what this woman did? What this beautiful angel did and say, ‘Oh OK, I’m gonna take it for myself because I’m hot right now and I’m feelin’ myself,’” said DMX. “How do you just go there with it? Your balls ain’t that big, son.”
