Listen to DMX’s final guest verse on Chris Webby’s “We Up”


The last DMX verse ever recorded for another artist before his death was for Connecticut rapper Chris Webby on the just-released track “We Up.”

Produced by Nox Beatz and JP On Da Track, the gritty and hugely energetic record hears Webby bouncing all over the track with his signature pun, providing the perfect alley-oop for X to rush in and deliver a fiery verse full of bars difficult. .

X, that’s pretty disrespectful, nigga/ You don’t have to cross the line for me to control you, nigga/ My scratch game official, match official/ This goal gon’ hit ya, it sound the same as a whistle“, raps X in the first lines of his verse.

He keeps on: “I woke up and broke what I had to break/ Don’t take an earthquake to shake this ground/ Don’t play, you know I’m sensitive, nigga/ May they never be able to find the rest of you nigga / I was working while you jerk off.

The track arrives with a video shot and directed by Rook Director, in which Webby is accompanied by members of the Ruff Ryders Lifestyle biker gang, who have featured in previous DMX music videos. The clip also sees X’s verse rapped by a digital pit bull wearing a Ruff Ryder chain.

“It was the last verse ever recorded by DMX,” Webby said in a press release. “Thank you to everyone who helped make this video. I wouldn’t have done it any other way.”

He added: “RIP to a legend and one of my biggest inspirations (and so many others) as an emcee. We love you X, thank you for everything. Long live the DOG.

“We Up” is a preview of what fans can expect from Webby’s new album “Still Wednesday,” which is slated for release on December 22.

DMX’s posthumous debut album, “Exodus”, was released in May. In a three star review, NME‘s Will Lavin wrote, “Less a cohesive body of work and more a collection of tunes, ‘Exodus’ feels a bit unfinished at times, due to a lack of X verses and the occasional filler disc.

“Nevertheless, it’s a wonderful tribute record loaded with stellar individual moments, and serves as a beautiful reminder of why the world fell in love with DMX in the first place.”

Meanwhile, a new documentary titled DMX: don’t try to understand was released by HBO last month.

The film follows the late rapper in 2019 after his release from prison for tax evasion, as he attempts to rebuild his life and career with comeback touring plans. It addresses both his impact on fans around the world and his troubled past, ranging from drug addiction to financial troubles.

It’s part of HBO’s Music Box documentary series, which began with Woodstock 99: Peace, Love and Rage in July and includes other films about Alanis Morissette, jazz legend Kenny G, Saturday night fever producer Robert Stigwood and Juice WRLD.
