While female rappers Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj are duking it out over old-school style dis tracks, New York rapper DMX has struck out at Drake and Rick Ross via an interview- and he took some shots at Jay-Z, too.
Disparity in backgrounds could be a reason (DMX grew up in the projects and was in and out of juvie as a kid, while Drake starred on Degrassi High), but DMX listed a bunch of reasons why he’s no big fan of Drake. He cited vocal style as well as basically “he’s ugly” when answering the question, saying:
“No… I don’t like anything about Drake. I don’t like his f*cking voice. I don’t like what he talks about. I don’t like his face. I don’t like the way he walks. Nothing.”
As for Rick Ross, DMX thinks the rapper is a boring fatass, commenting:
“I’m just not impressed. He’s aight, man. He talks about eating and girlfriends too much. How much can a nigga eat? How much weed can you smoke? Let’s talk about something else… I see a whole nother side of the coin, son.”
While the rapper- who has in the past feuded with Ja Rule- said J. Cole is “nice,” he had something to say about Jay-Z, too. DMX opines:
“I see what’s really good. You trying to eliminate the competition. At first you retire, then get me off the label and now you’re back rapping again. That was just some bullshit. You know what it is. That was getting rid of the competition.”
Up next for DMX is a new reality show reportedly in the works.
