At first the rumor mill ran rampant with words that DMX would be going up against the Rap God himself Eminem, and flyers started going up to that effect. DMX took a minute though to sit down with N.O.R.E. to set the record straight on his upcoming battle.

What y’all think??? I’m riding wit the DOG!!!
DMX is heard saying that Eminem won't be participating in a Verzuz battle, but DMX wanted to go up against his Arch-Nemesis Jay Z. While it's unlikely that the Roc Nation mogul would participate, he hasn't yet outright denied his involvement.
While visiting Noreaga, X can be heard speaking to to what sounds like Swizz Beatz saying "He ain't gotta come outside n*gga it's in the house!" He continued "You can't go in the basement and play some records?!... That's what I'm saying. That's why it should be done. It's a celebration. We're celebrating music. He got some hits, too! He can play 'Money, Cash, Hoes,' then I can play 'Money, Cash, Hoes,'" referring to his 1998 collaboration.
"Make it happen," X added. "That would be dope." Check the clip below and let us know what you think.
