Earlier this week, it seemed like a DMX Eminem Verzuz battle was set in stone.
That doesn't seem to the case, and the reason may be that X really wants to take on JAY Z.
"Em don't want it," DMX explained and then turned his attention to HOV. "I'd rather go against my arch-nemesis. He don't gotta got outside, he can stay in the house. You can't go in the basement and play some records? That's what I'm saying. That's why it should be done. It's a celebration. We're celebrating music. He got some hits, too. He can play 'Money, Cash, Hoes,' then I can play 'Money, Cash, Hoes,'"
Although NORE says it's all love between "arch-nemeses" X and JAY, they have a tricky history.
The two New Yorkers were briefly in the supergroup Muder Inc. along with Ja Rule, but that fell apart because the word was X and Hov didn't get along.
Then there was their legendary pool hall battle in The Bronx, and all the rumors that Jay didn't want DMX on Roc-a-Fella.
