Swizz Beatz talks with Sway (MTV) about X’s current state and what’s to expect in the near future.
“Me and X probably have the realest of realest talks,” Swizz said of his close friend. “If a person don’t wanna help themselves, then there’s nothing you can do. The good thing is that X is willing to help himself. I know the X I can work with, I know the X I cannot work with. Right now [he] is the X I can work with. That’s why he’s on the [‘Who’s Real’] remix smashing it and we got about seven other records that, if we put out right now, it would mess everybody up.
“But I wanna have the proper setup where he’s getting a fair chance and the most attention and most respect right now,” Swizz added. “I’m not putting nothing out until we have the lineup together, which we’re close to having, and the streets are going to witness that raw uncut street element. X was doing $16 million movies and sleeping outside, just because that’s where he felt comfortable. He’s the realest in the game. He never was on no jewelry, no cars. X, he’s one artist that I truly know is a real artist. It don’t get no more real than X.”
So X is ready to bounce back, Ja Rule is currently trying, and since they made up last night… you think there will ever be a chance for a Murder Inc reunion? Also, after the jump catch Dame Grease speak about scoring Earl’s movies.
