Eminem & DMX Collaborate On New LP
Eminem and comeback kid DMX are in the studio putting together what would be a momentous collaborative LP.
According to one source, this is not one of those ‘dream situations’ – they are already in the studio.
Compton-based producer Cavie, who has worked with T.I., Cee Lo Green and Macy Green, claims Def Jam executives first pitched the idea of the two rap heavyweights joining forces, and the pair have since spoken and agreed to move the project forward.
“That right there, I’m going to be honest with you, it was just an idea we were throwing around and it kind of just stuck — I probably should give all the credit to that to my man Ali and [Def Jam executive] Randy Acker,” the veteran producer told SOHH.
“They got ties with Marshall [Eminem] and they were like, ‘We’re good with Marshall and we’re good with X. How can we make this record happen?’ To my knowledge, they’ve already had the phone conversation, they’ve already spoke, everything is good. They talked on a real level.
“I don’t want to get too deep into it but they’ve already spoken and the record is in the making. We’re just waiting for all of the particulars to come flying. We’re going to see hip-hop history.
