Earlier this week, VIBE was granted an exclusive interview prison interview with DMX. The troubled East Coast rap legend is currently less than a month away from being a free man. He was sentenced to a year for violating his probation last Dec.
During our talk with X, he revealed that a certain Miami rapper extended an invitation for a fresh start with his emerging label. —Mikey Fresh
VIBE: You got major labels interested?
DMX: Yeah. Actually, Rick Ross’ peoples wrote me a letter while I was in here.
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.’
Oh wow, have you thought about that?
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.
That’s crazy man. Because I don’t know if you heard but right now Rick Ross is on fire. Maybach Music Group signed up a whole bunch of people. Wale, Pill--and they’re really doing it man. That would be a crazy power move if you guys joined up.
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.
