What Would A Battle Between DMX And Jay-Z Be Like?

Before DMX and Jay Z became international rap titans, they competed in a classic hip-hop war. Even with all that feuding in the past, Hov and X have collaborated on a bunch of songs, including "It's Murda" and "Blackout." They even almost formed a group with Ja Rule.

In 1999, Jay Z and DMX embarked (and majorly cashed in) on the Hard Knock Life Tour. Although Jay Z’s album gave the tour its name, the lineup was a joint headliner of the Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder and DMX.

Captured in the documentary film Backstage, Jay Z and DMX had vastly different demeanors on wax, on stage, and as celebrities. While both were pillars of Rap-made-right and suddenly sex symbols, they only overlapped in skill and love of the art.

DMX or Jay-Z

DMX doubles down on wanting to go against JAY-Z in a Verzuz battle. “It's a celebration. We're celebrating music,” DMX said.

In the late '90s, Jay-Z and DMX were Def Jam's most successful stars. The friendly rivalry includes several rap battles between the legendary MCs, including their Backstage Freestyle match in 2000. In 1999, they also created the infamous supergroup Murder Inc, which starred both rappers and Ja Rule.

Before DMX and Jay Z became international rap titans, they competed in a classic hip-hop war. Their Bronx battle in the early '90s is the stuff of legends and it's also what sparked their ongoing beef, according to Irv Gotti.

Top 5 DMX Videos

New York rapper DMX did it best when it came to making stories out of songs. Earl Simmons, better known by his stage names DMX and Dark Man X, is an American rapper and actor. Take a look at some of hottest videos released by The Wrap-Up Magazine.
"Slippin" was one of my favorite track released by the artist. In this visual, DMX's tells the story of overcoming his own demons such as smoking crack.

Now this was the break through anthem. "Ruff Ryders' Anthem" is a song by American hip hop recording artist DMX, released as the fourth single from his debut studio album It's Dark and Hell Is Hot.

We posted this full playlist of the album "Flesh Of My Flesh". This whole album was hot and could not be stopped. Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood is the second album released in December 22, 1998 by rapper DMX, little more than seven months after his debut album.

"Ain't No Sunshine" Is off the Exit Wounds soundtrack. This is when DMX was at his prime in rapping. DMX released his best-selling album "And Then There Was X" which featured the hit single "Party Up".

DMX Welcomes 15th Child

DMX welcomed his 15th child into the world last Friday (Aug. 16) with his girlfriend Desiree Lindstrom. The baby boy's name is Exodus Simmons and he weighed six pounds, 10 ounces.

The veteran rapper's substantial family tree has caused him some issues in the past. In June 2015, DMX was arrested for unpaid child support. Just a few months after being released from that arrest, X was picked up yet again on charges of unpaid child support. His ex-wife and mother of four of his children, Tashera Simmons, accused DMX of missing his $10,000 a month child support payments following his prison release. At one point, reports said he owed about $400,000 in unpaid funds.

DMX ended up blaming it all on his former manager, who was fired late last year. X claimed the payments should have been handled by the business manager, and he assumed Tashera was getting the payments as usual until he got arrested.

2016 got off to a rough start as well, but it was because of his health.  DMX was found unconscious and rushed to a hospital in February. Luckily things have gotten better for Dark Man X as he started to do notable interviews, appeared at one of the Bad Boy reunion shows, and teamed up with his old Ruff Ryders associate, Styles P for a new song called "Still Scratching." With the birth of his baby boy, this appears to cap off a much better year for the Yonkers rapper.

DMX Placed On House Arrest

TMZ reports that the multi-platinum rapper, real name Earl Simmons, got an earful when he showed up for his bond hearing on Friday, August 11, 30 minutes late. DMX is out on bond in his tax evasion case, but isn't making it easy for the judge not to throw him in jail.

He's allegedly failed four drug tests for cocaine and marijuana. In addition, X violated another condition of his bond by leaving New York City to take care of some family matters in St. Louis, without getting court permission first.

DMX is currently facing 14 counts of evading more than $1 million in federal taxes. If convicted he could be sentenced to 44 years in federal prison.

#MusicVideo by Kosha Dillz 'Solo' Ft Gangsta Boo


The pandemic has been hard for everyone and Kosha Dillz is no stranger to it. During the last week before the complete lockdown, the unlikely pair of Three 6 Mafia's Gangsta Boo and Kosha Dillz recorded "Solo" with 2021 Grammy Nominated producer Sam Barsh (Anderson Paak, Earthgang, Logic) for Kosha's album Nobody Cares Except You, which was the precedent going into the loneliness of the pandemic.

Now that most of society is on an upswing out of it, the temperature has changed the possibility of happiness, and a whacky creative music video could be what we need!
