No matter what you think of him, that DMX was born to entertain us. Once upon a time, he was the biggest thing in rap music but his run-ins with the law kept him in the belly of the beast, where ironically, he currently resides at the present time. The loving folks over at Vibe Magazine went to pay him a visit and recently found out that his current rap king successor, Rick Ross, is very interested in signing him to the MMG empire.
The only problem is X is a little paranoid. Not from the drugs but by Ross’ alleged membership in a particular secret society. Please, hold your questions and laughter to the end.
VIBE: You got major labels interested?
DMX: Yeah. Actually, Rick Ross’ peoples wrote me a letter while I was in here.
DMX: Yeah like ‘Yo we got a home for you. We’ll pick you up in a limo. Just come to Miami. Just come, we got you.’
Vibe: Oh wow, have you thought about that?
DMX: I’m thinking about it. It was a good feeling. I respect him as an artist, and I would like to work with him. But he got the whole Illuminati thing going on. I got fans who write me like ‘I’m glad you’re not a part of that.’ And I don’t know what it’s really about entirely. So it might be like a good thing.
Vibe: That’s crazy man. Because I don’t know if you heard but right now Rick Ross is on fire. Maybach Music Group signed up a whole bunch of people. Wale, Pill–and they’re really doing it man. That would be a crazy power move if you guys joined up.
DMX: Yeah. I have respect for him and he expressed interest that he wanted to work with me while I was out. So I definitely want do a song with him, but I don’t know about the record label thing. I would have to see what his camp is like and feel people out. I’m not the average artist. [Vibe]
Apparently someone needs to send X a care package in the form of an updated CD collection. The poor guy has been listening to “Free Mason” from last year’s Teflon Don on repeat.
Look out for Vibe’s full interview next week. Should be a doozy.
