DMX, who is reportedly working on an album with Swizz Beatz, has done an interview in which he discusses the current state of Hip Hop.
“The quality of rap fuckin’ sucks right now,” DMX says in an interview with 359HipHop. “There are certain nice rappers, but for the most part, niggas suck. That’s what the fuck it is, man. Take it how you want to fuckin’ take it. Straight up. The camera man agrees with me. That’s what it is man, take it how you want to take it. Bring it. What?”
During the interview, where DMX says jail time hasn’t changed him as an artist, the rapper also speaks on recent arrests.
“The last few times I got locked up, I was locked up for hours at a time,” DMX says. “Driving without a license. Who the fuck gets locked up for driving without a license? Me, because I’m famous. That’s all. Police suck dick. That’s what the fuck they do. They suck dick. It is what it is. I’m not a criminal. I’m not committing crimes and shit. I drive my fucking car. I have a car. I drive it. Oh, you want to pull me over and lock me up? Do what you do, homie, but I’ll be right back out doing the same fuckin’ thing I was doing 8 hours ago. So fuck you.”
X also spoke on Eminem’s talent during the interview when asked if the rapper is actually a “Rap God.”
“I don’t know what Eminem is,” DMX said. “I know he’s a talented artist. We have a good relationship, but don’t ask me no random shit to start no random beef. Please. Don’t do that.”
