DMX Talks new music in fashion spread

Ahead of his new album release, DMX is featured in a new GQ magazine spread. The motor bikes are still there but DMX got a grown and sexy makeover for the fashion feature as he talked about how life has changed.

In the interview, X says he’s happiest when he’s looking at his son Exodus. He knows that despite his first arrest at 10 years-old, he knows his life has a purpose and explains how God has influenced him saying,  “I just need to have a purpose. And I don’t even know that purpose, because God has given me that purpose since before I was in the womb, so I’m going to fulfill that purpose…whether I want to or not, whether I know it or not, because the story has already been written. If you appreciate the good, then you have to accept the bad.”

DMX also talked about the new music he is working on saying,”The standard that I hold myself to is the same: Better than everything I hear. I need to be better than everything that I hear. And I can hear it. They winning with that? Oh, I’m good. If you don’t give people something incredible to listen to, they’re going to listen to whatever. And I get that. I’m not mad at the fans for enjoying these songs, or the DJs for playing songs they play. I’m not mad at them or the artists that’s winning even though they suck. I’m not mad at them.”
