Styles P says he had the toughest verse on DMX’s track, “Blackout,” a classic produced by Swizz Beatz featuring Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek Louch of The Lox along with JAY-Z. For years, fans have debated who has the most memorable contribution.

“Damn you mean ‘What do I like best?’ My verse, nigga, I don’t even care what nobody else say [laughs]said Styles P in a recent interview with HipHopDX. “I’m pretty sure I had the toughest verse. Although it wasn’t the best, I’m sure it was the most aggressive. I might have said the weirdest shit.

He continued: “I always leave for me, but no ‘Blackout?’ Nah me. I think it’s safe to say. You know what it is, if you want me to be honest, you know. I’m roasting shit, I’m not a sleeping dog. I’m the guy who doesn’t say much but look at my track record and look at what I rhyme about Come in and you’ll never hear I got burned.

“Blackout” was featured on DMX’s second studio album Flesh of my flesh, blood of my blood in 1998. The legendary rapper died earlier this year at the age of 50.

Styles P released a joint project with Havoc, wreck way, December 3.
