DMX played with internet fire earlier this week with the veteran rapper got on Twitter and asked for “trap beats.”
By an unwritten law, rappers of DMX‘s stature and age aren’t allowed to rap on “trap beats.” Those are supposed to be left to new jacks or rappers who already made their name and hits off that kind of production. So when X tweeted out “Looking for trap beats. Email firstname.lastname@example.org,” it looked like the equivalent of an old basketball player switching teams to chase a ring. Or better yet, the old head who came in the club wearing FUBU.
Twitter was not amused.
