DMX Reminisces On Filming "Belly" With Hype Williams

DMX says that he has a hard time recalling being on set on account of his diet of booze at the time.

DMX recently spoke with MTV2’s Sucker Free about his time shooting the 1998 flick Belly with director Hype Williams. In a recently released clip from the interview (via RapFix), Dark Man X recalls how working with Williams on the video for “Get At Me Dog” inspired him to want to be part of Belly in its early phases.

“Hype Williams did my first video 'Get At Me Dog,' and at the end of the video, I’m eating and everything and he asked me if I wanted to be part of a movie.” His response to Williams was plain and simple: “Hell yeah.”

X also reminisced on shooting the film, and explained that his memory is a bit hazy surrounding being on set.

“I really don’t remember how I felt at the time,” he said. “You gotta remember also, during that whole movie, I’d eat an egg and cheese sandwich with turkey bacon in the morning, then I'd drink a bottle of Hennessy per day. That was the contents of my stomach everyday."

    If you think the anti-Brother bigotry that permeates on this site is astonishing, check out Hi-def Digests' hate-filled, pernicious review of the Belly Blu-ray. The ignorant bile these guys spew can only happen in the atmosphere of the Internet and proves one of the downsides of the net is that whites now have the means to express their fascist views in the safety of their own home. Anonymous web users who talk shit about Brothers on line but not to our faces are dick-less scum.

    Honestly my man looks so sad. I was a senior in highschool when X debuted. Belly came out the following year. To see how this dude looks and sounds right now in the present its just a shame man. Take a DMX & then a Jay-Z both whom were once peers from the same era and look @ them now. It's sad man. Reminds me of one of his old rhymes "wake up 40 years old on some bum shit..." no judgement, i hope the man finds his own peace with life, but its such a sharp contrast to what he once was...
