Ruff Ryder founders Waah, Dee, and Chivon Dean chopped it The Breakfast Club today.

During the chat they discussed JAY-Z and DMX's falling out, which led to X and the Ruff Ryders leaving Def Jam when Jay was the label boss.  [Jump to 54 minutes.]

"What had happened was Jay-Z called X and told him 'The inmates have took over the prison.' And when your man Jay-Z got in position X felt like he didn't honor him and hold weight like he was supposed to.  He was moving kind of sideways.  It wasn't a comfortable situation.  He told him one thing he did something else, and then it went left," Dean explained.

According to Dee, X may have had a bad attitude from the beginning.

"In [DMX's] mind he was like, 'I won, I'm better than you.' So when Hov wound up being president at Def Jam he felt like he had to answer to him and X didn't like that," Dee said. "He felt some type of way about Hov dictating his future."

Earlier this year, DMX challenged Hov to a Verzuz battle. Jay didn't respond.
