DMX and Eve Reunite at Rock the Bells

DMX and Eve

DMX reunited with his fellow Ruff Ryder Eve on stage at the Rock the Bells festival on Saturday in San Bernardino, Calif. The hip-hop veteran opened his 20-minute joint set with “We Right Here,” sweating through classics from his catalog including “Party Up (Up in Here)” and “Slippin’.”

Six minutes into his set, he brought out Eve for “Ruff Ryders’ Anthem.” “Give it up for the First Lady of Ruff Ryders,” said X. He closed with a prayer before turning over the stage to E-V-E.

“Where my ladies at?” asked the Philly raptress, who performed “Hot Boyz,” “What Ya’ll Want,” and “Who’s That Girl?” She also spit a verse over Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Ni**as in Paris” beat. “These bitches in debt better pay their tax,” she rapped before ending her brief set with her 2001 hit “Let Me Blow Ya Mind.”

Rap-Up TV: Machine Gun Kelly and DMX Face Their ‘D3mons’

In addition to collaborations with Young Jeezy, Tech N9ne, Twista, Bun B, and Lil Jon, Machine Gun Kelly got to work with one of his idols, DMX, on a track called “D3mons” off his upcoming debut Lace Up. The Cleveland MC, who previously collaborated with X on his single “I Don’t Dance,” talked about meeting the hip-hop veteran for the first time while standing on top of a table rapping a rare DMX verse.

“It’s very, very dark. It’s very, very DMX and MGK’ish,” the Bad Boy signee told Rap-Up TV of the Dame Grease-produced song. “Obviously I have the ‘Wild Boy’ side, I have the inspirational side, but I also have the very dark side.”

The eery record, which samples the Gladiator soundtrack, was recorded in a dark room. “When [DMX] was rapping, he was punching the air,” said MGK, who wrote his verse while recuperating from “a wild couple months with a certain drug.”

“My mind was talking to myself and I wrote the verse and it turned out to be a really creepy song,” he said.
