DMX Reveals Rick Ross Wants Him To Join Maybach Music Group

In an interview with VIBE.com from behind bars, X explains that Rawse reached out to make him part of the MMG family.

DMX has revealed that Rick Ross reached out to him while behind bars showing interest in signing the gruff MC to his Maybach Music Group imprint. Speaking with VIBE.com, Dark Man X explained that Rawse’s people sent a letter to him in prison with the intention of getting him on the label.

“Rick Ross’ peoples wrote me a letter while I was in here,” he said. “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.’”

X is considering their offer, but is afraid of getting tangled up in Ross’ Illuminati affiliation. “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.”

As of now, he’s up for a collaboration with Ross, but is lukewarm on the MMG deal. “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.”

    Strange Music needs to sign DMX and Bone Thugs n Harmony... I'm sure thy'd be able to revive these guys' careers like they did Kutt Kalhoun and Brotha Lynch Hung... Sign them Travis, Sign them Tech...

  • MyName

    I actually think that X could quite fit in MMG in a strange way. Because DMX is so different with his grimy style. I could imagine X being the highlight on a MMG posse cut because he really stands out and he could actually create a buzz with MMG being where they are right now.

    i dont want him to get signed in a label like this and i definetely dont want him to work with this clown. and even if he gets signed he will understand quickly that he doesnt fit there. x is a real artist im afraid that this label might change him and make him a sellout just like everybody in this label.x wants to help people through his songs but everyobody in this label only talk about cars, money, bitches exactly the kind of artists that x has been dissin in his latest live performances and also in his songs. its a big chance but i think that x should just keep it real and look forward to get signed in another label.

  • DV

    X should sign with DuckDown. That would be ill.

  • Big Wo0orm45

    I fuck wit X, fav rapper by far. n i fuck wit Ross music. But das not a gud look at all. Das not even close 2 X style. X aint rly a punchline rapper and damn sure not a bullshyt rapper. But i honestly think X shuld jus go out as a Legend and stop tryna make dez comebacks. Da man has said everything he needed to say. Had 6 number 1 albums n one number 2. hes accomplished more dan most rappers ever will and is jus a all around real ass nigga. I say jus become a KRS-1 and weigh in on how u feel bout da game. dont get involved wit alota dis bullshyt bein made.

    go for it x maybach music is getting big right now and looks like they may be the next movment pluse x and pill on a track would go hard but i would have to say wale is my fav on the label he is a problem

  • Edi Kajmolli

    im prayin X makes a serious come back man the game has been missin a dude like him recently... tired of these metro ass lame rappers

  • Nico 3

    It's not like he has any other shit poppin off. Maybe X can finally reinvent himself a bit and get away from the pigeon hole he put himself in all those albums. That said, his in your face style doesn't match up well with Ross.

      I wouldn't mind a heap D signing with these guys, but I wouldn't like him to work with their producers. Everything sounds the same, and it wouldn't suit him.

    Smh I was just watchin Backstage the other day... Back then X and Jay-Z were seen as equals. Now X is considering signing with an artist Jay-Z put on. Watchin how different everybody's lives turned out from that tour is crazy. X, Ja Rule, Red & Meth, Dame, Sigel, Amil, That shit is crazy af. Ah well.... DMX x Meek Mill over a Lex Luger track would be ill.

    What the fuck is X talking about he don't know about the illuminati shit. When he was a part of a certain secret society believe it or not. How the fuck x think he got all them movies and extra shit he was doing x know what time it is. I hope x has seen the light and hopefully he wont join back up with that bullshit. Think im lyin look that shit up and not from the internet.

    • Anonymous

      @anom: Like i said do some real research and you will see that x was involved. The illuminati shit is real and when the shit hits the fan im a say I TOLD YOU SO. You cats who dont believe or are in denial are the real retards because your close minded. There is a bunch of shit that goes on everyday behind closed doors that effects everything that we do. X got those movies an extra shit because thats how the illuminati works to get the fame, money, and exposure you gotta give them something in return and its usually your soul and loyalty. But some of you are to fuckin dumb and close minded to realize that shit. Anyway I know what I know and x was involved in a certain secret society but he got kicked out because of his crack addiction. LIKE I SAID DONT BELIEVE ME LOOK IT UP AND NOT FROM THE INTERNET!!!! So you can believe what you want and ill continue to know what I know.

    LMAO...X at this point signing you is like signing shawty lo... yes you are unquestionably more talented but you're also extremely unreliable. you've been either cracking it up or behind bars for the last what 5-10yrs? just be thankful dog. and that illuminatti shyt is for the mufukas that dont have time to focus on their own lives. no one gives a fuk that about illuminati bullshyt. all that matters is good music and the old X spittin over some of those beats that ross be picking would be str8 fire...

  • JoeM

    Man DMX used to be my favorite rapper.. done fell the fuck off. I'd lose what little respect I have left for X if he signed to officer ricky.. Come on X, get back to yo fucking roots.. holla at ya mans Swizzy and Jadakiss, they seem to be doing alright for themselves. Fuck officer ross.. Get back to that dark grimey new york school street shit X.. And this coming from a Miami dude.

    • forevermatic

      exactly, both jada and swiss are still relevant I don't see the need for X to be Ross' sidekick

    • J

      Agree 100%. X is NOT made for MMG. Dude has his own style, his own attitude, and that would completely clash with MMG. X needs to be X and do his own thing...RUFF RYDERS

  • DMXfan

    It would be great if Strange Music would sign DMX. It would fit perfectly.

    • Big Dan

      What! Strange Music and Tech Nine are putting in some serious and impressive work, but I don't think any of Tech's album on Strange have sold what X's worst performing did in one, okay, two weeks. No X is not going to be moving 5-8 million units any more, but he needs a big machine behind him, not some mom and pop outfit.

    Fuck signing to another rapper's label. Go indie, man. He got the fan base (as someone below me mentioned). Go cater to 'em. With a flow, delivery, and overall presence on a track whatever he drops is sure to ring bells. He don't need no other rapper hyping him up. This is DMX!!! He's his OWN hype man. All he needs is a couple tracks from Swizzy, a few of the Salaam Remi "Nasty", "Made You Look" tracks and he'll be buzzin' like a bee on crack!! Fuck another rapper's label. DMX is a BRAND NAME!!!

  • jae

    i allways wanted dr dre to pick up x

  • I think...

    I think em should sign darkman. Maybe he can help him kick the coke habit. If em can go from taking 80 some pills a day to straight as an arrow sober insane spitter I think he can walk X through this. Shady's been making a lot of power plays and this could be another one. Probably wouldn't ever happen though.

  • Anonymous

    I don't think you should do it X. Ross is a phony raps about shit that he never lived. If you are a correctional officer like Ross, you can't have a criminal history. So how does Ross come out and say he is all this shit when he had no criminal background because again you can't to be a correctional officer or whatever

  • Dr. Pepper, out of the way!

    Rick Ross turned out to be quite the business man. I hope X brings real hiphop back to the forefront. I'd like to see these guys hook up for a featured track, but X has to keep it Ruff Ryders forever. I would be interested in X going in on one of those classy symphonic rick ross beats, and ross going in on a dark man x cut. This type of collaboration is good.

  • hellrazor

    X, dont do it. please dont sign to that label. that label should change its name to WAY WACK MUSIC GROUP cuz their shit is wack (to say the least)

  • Anonymous

    Hey, Ross has the finances for promotion/marketing and could EASILY match or exceed any offer from any major. Ross must understand X has a ridiculous fanbase and can hold down an entire album DOLO and doesn't NEED the MMG camp to be featured on X's solo efforts. If X signs wit Ross, Teedra Moses HAS to be on his 1st single's hook, though...shit!

    Thats my nigga X for life and yeah collabs would be dope.

    • TwittaSpitta

      X isnt the businessman that ross turned out to be. He established the mold with Ruff Ryders but couldnt keep it together. He had a meanest roster in the day (lox, drag-on, eve, etc). Nobody has really found the balance in keeping a solid group/label (badboy, g-unit, terror squad, etc). The closest group that ever came to holding it down was dipset, and u see where they are at now (trying to regroup). mmG might be the first to be a true empire, but only time will tell.
