DMX Recalls The Conversation Of Drake Asking Him To Sample What These Bitches Want On U With Me

DMX visited Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” radio show in New York City at the end of June to chop it up with DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God for an interview.

During their conversation, X recalled having a conversation with Drake and Noah “40” Shebib over the phone about them wanting to sample his “What These Bitches Want” song on the “U With Me?” track off VIEWS.

Back in 2012, DMX mentioned in an interview that he was not a fan of Drizzy, but he has now changed the way he feels about the 6 God after this “humbling experience” of Drizzy Drake wanting to use one of his songs.

You can check out X‘s full interview with “The Breakfast Club” after the jump below. He starts discussing Drake at the 25:35 mark!

One Of The Producers Behind Drake U With Me Off VIEWS Speaks On The Song

One of the producers behind Drake‘s “U With Me?” song off his VIEWS album, DJ Dahi, spoke with Genius about how the track came together and how it was almost left off VIEWS.

Dahi explained that he sent the beat to Drizzy Drake‘s manager Oliver El-Khatib, who told the producer that Drizzy loved it and was going to use it. However, an unfinished version of the song leaked in the summer of 2014.

Things didn’t look good for the track then, but Noah “40” Shebib (who also has production credits on the song) called up DJ Dahi to ensure him that the finished version of “U With Me?” will still be appearing on VIEWS. You can read the interview after the jump below!

Is Drake Dropping A New Album This Year?

We all know about Drake’s popularity. His debut, Thank Me Later, came out this past spring, and believe it or not, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that Drizzy could come right back with another album just in time for Christmas.

“Drake’s crazy,” Young Money president Mack Maine told MTV News last week. “He’s doing a mixtape right now. He called me one night, like 2 in the morning. He has the intro done for the new album. We was discussing dates where he should come back. That’ll be soon. And this mixtape, he’s gonna put that out quick. His formula is crazy. He works fast. I can’t give the secret away to the formula. He’s a musical genius. The way he and producer 40 put things together is crazy.”

When we asked Mack if Drake was putting out another LP before next summer, he simply said, “Real possible! What we discussed, definitely, what me and him discussed.”

“It makes sense,” Mack said. “Like DMX and those guys at Def Jam. They dropped two in one year. I think 50 Cent did two in one year. If it wasn’t a year, it was right around that time. Drake’s hot like that. Why not? Give them what they want.”

When asked if Drizzy would have an album in the marketplace in time for it to be a stocking stuffer around the holidays, Mack Mizzle smiled and advised us to “expect the unexpected.” – MTV

I really can’t see Drake dropping another album this year, can you ❓
