DMX Talks RAP BEEF With Jay-Z, Says He's Not Feelin' Drake Or Rick Ross Either

Promoting his upcoming album Undisputed (March 27), DMX stopped by The Breakfast Club where he talked about Jay-Z being jealous of his talent, why he never recorded an album with Ja Rule and what rappers he likes and doesn't like.  Listen to it inside....

During his interview with TBC, it became apparent that DMX is actually pretty funny.  He's surprisingly quick witted and had a joke for everything.

But when the subject of beefs came up, he became extra serious.  He said he thinks Def Jam stopped focusing on him as an artist AFTER Jay-Z took the reigns.  He pretty much said Jay was jealous of his talent and wanted to take out the competition.

He said the album with Ja Rule never happened because of their egos.

And he jokingly said he doesn't like Rick Ross lyrically....and added that he talks about food entirely too much.

He then dissed Drake saying, "I don't like anything about Drake.  I don't like his voice.  I don't like anything he talks about.  I don't like his face....."

Damn.  Everybody's hating Drizzy these days.  Also, X told a funny story about the time he impersonated a cop.

Listen to the interview below:

1.  Soul Train may be headed to Broadway or starting own cruise line.  Story.

2.  Tina Campbell of Mary Mary expecting fifth child.  Story.

WANT YOUR OWN AVATAR? GET IT HERE.

Ok first off he's not hating

Ok first off he's not hating they said what do you think about Drake and he said how he felt. That's not hating that's called and opinion. It wasn't like he's trying to start beef he was asked. And why are yall still talking about drugs? he came into the industry first album with the song slippin talking about his drug addictions. So atleast he's honest unlike most of these down low rappers. As for Jay-Z EVERYBODY AIN'T LYING ON HIM. LL.COOL J, NORE, JOE BUDDEN, and many other Jef Jam artist like Redman weren't getting their ablums promoted because while Jay-Z should've been being a CEO he was on tour rapping....Huh? X had perviously sold more records than Jay so maybe he was just a little jealous. DMX is always gonna be honest so if you want fluff don't ask him.

Yo real talk!! The man, never

Yo real talk!! The man, never just came out and started blasting at anybody...DMX was asked what he thinks about these people!! He expressed his opinion! If you dont like a cats style its your right to state your opinion if asked! Thats what he did!! He was asked and DMX is as real as it gets!! The spoke his mind. He aint gonna hold it for nobody!! Thats what we need back in hip hop!! To much fake going on...You say he is a washed up....we will see!! Let em know DMX!! Bring the real back!! YOU KNOW!!!!

I like X in the interview

I like X in the interview reminded me that he has his own unique sound and it's something that's missing, now whether it'll be enough in this current climate who knows but its good to see he's still in it

Ugh! Why can’t past, older

Ugh! Why can’t past, older artists who claim they still have skills and relevant ish to say just showcase those and not find it necessary to knock the current line-up? Yes I’m talking about DMX, Lil’ Kim and others. If you’re good it’ll show. Keep your mouth shut and wait until your single, album whatever is blowing up all over and people are trying to get interviews with you for THOSE REASONS! Not just for inflammatory sound bytes about someone else where the interview becomes more about the other person than you! Oh and DMX, I’m all for your comeback, really I’m rooting for you and have been for a couple years but this direction is disappointing. Did you ever think Jay dropped you because he knew you were basing out? Did you ever think that paying attention to the way another man WALKS might be a little gay? Get on your grind and do you. Men lie, women lie, numbers don’t!!

I agree with you in that

I agree with you in that despite how impressive this interview was, DMX is a HUGE liability for the reasons you stated. I disagree, however, about your assessment of his views on Drake. People can differ. I dislike Drake from head to toe as well. I love Kanye and Jay-Z and I rock with Lil Wayne on most occassions (musically only). I am a female, a lawyer at a large law firm, graduate from two Top Tier private schools (one being a Top 10 school), and the list continues. I dislike Drake because his flows are weak and I'm too nice to comment on his looks. So I feel DMX. His dislike of Drake does not create an impression that he is hating because Drake is successful but rather that Drake just sucks--plain and simple. But that is our opinion and we're entitled to it.

OMG People. Lighten up! Smh. Anyway, I loved this interview and respect his total, un-filtered honesty. Not someone who tip toes around the bush. DMX makes gritty real music, it's not for everyone. Just giving his opinion. I was in tears this morning! Love u X. I'm a fan of Jay, and yes, he's also a grimy, Brooklyn cat about his "business", everyone knows this by now.

This is why I put dudes on

This is why I put dudes on IGNORE when they say that women gossip, are jealous and/or talk alot. DMX and Beanie Siegel have been smoking the same GREEN -ish: envy. So let me get this straight: you late 30's/40- yr old assholes mess up your lives for several years--then when YOU want to get back in the game, you hate on the people who came up & KEEP coming up? GTFOH! Why does DMX think anyone CARES what he thinks? He doesn't like Drake's face...does he think we like his cracked old, scraggly, Marmaduke looking ass? I LOVE Drake & Jigga: not just because they release hot tracks and actually have something to SAY--but because they are successful in other ways in terms of business ventures. They also--unlike DMX; they plan for LONG-TERM success. When DMX claimed one of his baby-mommas raped him a fewyears back, and when he didn't know who Barack Obama was and that he was running for Prez back in '08 I washed my hands of him. Trifling ass.

DMX needs to grab a seat and

DMX needs to grab a seat and get himself together. It's just like a typical has-been, drug addict, and/or bitter person to place blame on the next person for their downfalls and short-comings. Now, all of sudden since Jay out here killing the game he railroaded you out of jealousy? No, X you railroaded you because of stupidity and bad life choices. He has been bitter towards Jay got years, especially after his career went down the drain and Jay became really successful. He was just whinning saying that Beyoncè made Jay soft and he wasnt as hard as he used to be. He sounding like a bitter has-been and it's sad because he actually has talent and possibly the potential to have one of the biggest comebacks in hip-hop history but he is too jaded and pissed off to see that. Just sad.

Oh wow!!! Dark Man X I truly a prime example of "when keepin' it real goes wrong!"  I didn't even listen to the interview after readin the statements! He really needs to cut the bullish*t. He has only his self to blame for the turn his career took. I mean, what dude in his right mind (especially famous) would impersonate an officer!! WHO DOES THAT??! You're married to a woman who accepted & loved you @ your absolute worst and stood by you and what' you do? Go get a "jump off" preggers and claimed that she raped you! Like Jay said "jealousy is a female trait" shake it loose like the  that you are! I used to love X bu this guy is portraying himself as a bitter, envious has been and it's pathetic to watch. *turns the channel*

You youngins need to stop

You youngins need to stop about his drug use. X is the only rapper to have 2 number 1 albums in the same year. He was 1&2 back to back! He fell off, but everybody loves a good underdog story! Let the man live! And he has always been funny and a good interviewee. His Behind The Music was heart breaking, he needs counseling.

I agree he need counseling

I agree he need counseling but dissing other because they're more successful than YOU feel they should be and somehow blame them for your failures & shortcomings is the exact OPPOSITE of what he claims to be which is "real". Perhaps if he had his sh*t together and on point the reins would've been offered to him instead of Jay @ Def Jam. You can't knock a brother for accepting an opportunity to advance & propel himself ahead! And as far as Rozay & Drake he's entitled to his opinion as are all of us but HE'S the one who comes off as "jealous". If he doesn't like these dudes don't buy their albums but bad mouthing 'em is lame!! Exert that energy into making a tight ass album! If Rozay & Drake aren't doing it "right" show 'em!! Oh, and I'm not a "youngin'" 
