DMX Calls Drake "Disrespectful," Says He'd Like to "Beat Him Up"

The Dog isn't feeling the fact that Drizzy is executive-producing the new Aaliyah album.

It's been years since DMX released some impactful music, but his interviews are packing the wallop of an atom bomb. The Ruff Ryder rapper, who's on the comeback trail with his forthcoming new album, Undisputed, was his usual blunt self in a recent interview on New York's Power 105 FM, where he had some particularly choice words for everyone's favorite Canadian rapper-singer.
DMX has expressed his dislike for Drake before, but he took it to a new level on The Breakfast Club morning show. In particular, he said he wasn't feeling Drake's executive producer role on the new posthumous Aaliyah album — and the fact that he wasn't reaching out to Timbaland and Missy Elliott, her former mentors and collaborators. "It's disrespectful; like, that don’t even make sense," DMX told hosts Angela Yee, Charlemagne Tha God and DJ Envy. "You can't do s--t like that. That’s like wrong, man. I wish it was like seven, 10 years ago — catch a n---a on the elevator and beat him up, just to let him know it's real, son. He ain’t gotta be by himself. That's not a problem. We wolfed out in this joint."
The comments aren't much of a surprise considering his last interview with Angela Yee and company. Back in February, he seemed unable to come up with a single thing he liked about the Toronto MC. "I don't like anything about Drake," he said. "I don't like his voice, I don't like the sh-- he talks about, I don't like his face, I don't like the way he walks, I don't like his haircut, just nothing."

But Drake wasn't the only victim of DMX's ire. He also revealed that he wasn't attracted to Drizzy's crush and Young Money labelmate Nicki Minaj. "I'm good on that. I wouldn't do that," he said. "I don't know her to not like her. I'm not attracted to her. It's too much going on. I know she don’t hop out the bed lookin' like that."

Even Kanye West and Kim Kardashian caught some stray bullets. DMX insisted he wouldn't "wife up...any b---h that got famous from f-----."
