Despite his distaste for current hip hop superstars like Drake and Rick Ross, rap veteran DMX revealed in a recent interview that there's at least one member of rap's new generation that he listens to and appreciates. Dark Man X is a J. Cole fan.
"I tell you when it was [when I was ready to co-sign him.] I don't listen to the radio, I listened to the radio one time in the car, I'm driving, and I heard a [J. Cole] song and I was like, 'Wow -- d*mn, he's saying something,'" DMX said.
"I appreciate his lyrical content and then I found out who it was. So that's why [I co-sign him.]"
