icon Busta Rhymes Recalls DMX's Heated Reaction to Jay-Z's 'Why We Die' Verse

“ Busta Rhymes has recalled that DMX had a heavy reaction to JAY-Z’s verse on their classic cut “Why We Die.”

Appearing on Shopping For Sneakers with Kick Game, Busta detailed how X wanted to improve his verse after hearing that Hov was going to be on the track.

“My man Eric Nicks brought back the two-inch reel with DMX’s verse on it and JAY-Z didn’t spit yet,” he said. “So when we put the record out and Dog heard JAY-Z was on it, he stepped to Eric Nicks and he called me and was like, ‘Yo, you know that verse was just a ref, right? N-ggas went and put JAY-Z… If I’d have known that sh1t I’d have spit my sh1t better!’

“I was like, ‘But Dog, your sh1t was crazy!’ He was like, ‘fu#k that. Y’all ain’t tell me that Jay was getting on the sh1t. Next time we do a song, let me hear my sh1t finished first!’ Dog’s passion, I can’t even compare it to nothing else in existence.”

Busta Rhymes also detailed DMX’s at times complicated creative process, saying: “Dog would tell you he coming to the studio and then he’ll tell you to meet him somewhere. You gotta go four-wheel motorcycle riding with him first, you gotta go to the hobby store and he’ll buy like a $30,000 remote control car and he builds it and then he wants to play with it in the street.

“Dog would take you on like a 15-hour excursion before he’d come studio, and then you’re lucky if he comes that day. He might make you do that sh1t for three days in a row before he’d pull up to the studio — but when he come, he gonna deliver.”

What DMX Was Really Like In The Studio: A Deep Dive

“Why We Die” is the classic collaboration between Busta Rhymes, DMX and JAY-Z that was included on Busta’s 2000 album Anarchy.

DMX also featured on Busta’s star-studded remix of “Touch It” in 2006, which also boasted verses from Eminem, Lloyd Banks, Missy Elliott, Mary J. Blige, Papoose and Rah Digga.”

when X said
I kinda miss robbin' and stealin'
Cause it kept a n1gga hungry, only eatin' when I starved
I was ugly, so I robbed, no one loved me, sh1t was hard
Went to god once in a while when it got a little too hectic
He was the only one I knew that I respected

But then Hov said
They say the good die young, in the hood where I'm from
I only got one question to that - why the fu#k am I here?
I look to the air, I ask god, "love me please, "
But in reality, only people that hug me is thieves
Same n1ggaz that send shots through my rugby sleeves

Breh....them was BARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yup these n1ggas forgot what they came here for... Your aim is to outdo everyone on the joint and if everyone is on that same page? Greatness is achieved!!!

That's why I never knocked Wayne for saying he was the best rapper alive...

I was like "n1gga you better feel that way on the wakeup everyday!!!"

This whole album is flames but this track itself is on a throwback playlist that I was bumping the whole summer.


Undeniable classic. Bus is Top 10 in my book.

love X but he had that inferiority complex when it came to jay . Everytime i hear a story about them both , X is trying to outdo ,fight him . When Hov was president at def jam , he couldnt deal with the fact that he needed his green light to drop his album

i donīt think there was another artist that he tried to compete with that hard
Itīs really sad that drugs and prison slowed him down because i know by now they would be laughing together about those times
