DMX recorded his album at Snoop Dogg’s studio after their Verzuz battle
The late rapper stayed in Los Angeles until the album was done, Snoop says.
Before his tragic passing, DMX was getting ready to unleash his eighth studio album. The rap icon discussed the project excitedly on ‘Drink Champs’ and said it contained collaborations with Pop Smoke, the Griselda crew and more. In the weeks X’s death, more and more details about the upcoming record have emerged, the latest coming from his good friend Snoop Dogg.
“He actually did his whole album at my studio when we finished Verzuz,” Snoop said. “He never left. He stayed in L.A. and rented my studio out and did his whole album. I cooked for them, I laid it out for them. I made it feel like mi casa es su casa.”
“That was the best moment; that he felt comfortable enough to do his album at my spot and he didn’t leave until it was done,” the Doggfather added.
Snoop said the pair also bonded over his vintage car collection and a shared love of old-school music.
“DMX like old-school cars and I got like 20 of them,” Snoop explained. “So one night, I’m sitting in the back and cuz is sitting in the passenger seat. We’re sitting chopping it up and listening to old-school music. If you know anything about DMX, he don’t fuck with rap. We’re starting to find out we’re the same dog. We may have been separated at birth, but we’re the same dog. We like the same shit.”
Snoop also remembered DMX during a recent interview with USA Today.
“… He was always trying to help other people and that leads me to believe that’s why God chose this angel to come back home with him,” Snoop said at the time. “He did his time out here. He did what he was supposed to do. He influenced, he inspired and he represented. So, DMX, his soul will live on and his music will live on, as well. We thank you, brother, for what you brought to us.”
