DMX wanting to rap over a trap beat is nothing to laugh about at least not for the good folks on Twitter.
This is no April Fools joke. This morning, DMX went on Twitter and asked his fans to email him some trap beats for him to rap over. Some fans felt like it was a joke while others ridiculed the former Ruff Ryder chief as a sell-out to the new wave of trap music. “Trap Beats for my dog.” X tweeted.
As per usual, the reactions on Twitter were mixed with some being hilarious and others being either supportive or critical of DMX wish to rap over a trap beat. The rap legend is reportedly working on a new album with Swizz Beatz due sometime this year.
