This week, Snoop went back in time with a throwback pic. The Doggfather shared a pic of himself, X and comedian Mike Epps all hanging out together.
Wait, There’s More
Snoop is gearing up for one of the biggest battles of his entire career. Barring any changes, Dogg and X will have their bangers broadcast next week on Instagram Live and Apple Music.
“The battle of the dogs ‼️‼️‼️ @DMX vs @SnoopDogg 🔥 Wednesday, July 22nd. Watch on our IG or in HD on @AppleMusic. Drinks by @Ciroc. #Verzuz” -Verzuz TV’s Instagram
Before You Go
In May 2020, DMX shared his thoughts about going up against fellow rap icon Eminem in a hits battle. The Ruff Ryders leader admitted he still wanted to face-off against music mogul JAY-Z.
“Em don’t want it,” X said in the footage. “I’d rather go with my arch nemesis – he don’t gotta come outside, he can sit in the house. He scared to go to the basement and play some records? … It’s a celebration, we’re celebrating music.” -DMX’s Instagram
