Long time producer Cavie spoke with SOHH revealing that DMX is hard at work on his comeback album, and has already locked down a collaboration with the biggest artist of this generation, Eminem, which Cavie says will make hip-hop history.
“That right there, I’m going to be honest with you, it was just an idea we were throwing around and it kind of just stuck — I probably should give all the credit to that to my man Ali and [Def Jam executive] Randy Acker,” Cavie told SOHH. “They got ties with Marshall [Eminem] and they were like, ‘We’re good with Marshall and we’re good with X. How can we make this record happen?’ To my knowledge, they’ve already had the phone conversation, they’ve already spoke, everything is good. They talked on a real level. I don’t want to get too deep into it but they’ve already spoken and the record is in the making. We’re just waiting for all of the particulars to come flying. We’re going to see hip-hop history.”
DMX and Eminem have worked together in the past for DMX’s film Cradle 2 Da Grave on a song titled “Go To Sleep”, which also had Obie Trice on it. If you need a refresher, you can listen to “Go To Sleep” after the break.
