BATTLE OF THE DOGS: DMX & Snoop Dogg’s VERZUZ Battle Was The Best Thing To Happen This Week

​ ​ ​ ​

DMX and Snoop Dogg went hit-for-hit for their VERZUZ Battle and it was seriously the best thing to happen this week. It was a link up the culture needed. More inside…

Where my dogs at? We right here dog!

It was the battle of the dogs last night as DMX and Snoop Dog faced off for an epic VERZUZ Battle. East Coast vs. West Coast. There wasn’t any beef though. It was ALL love as both rappers showed uber respect for the other, which ended up creating a historic moment for Hip Hop.

The Hip Hop heavyweights rolled up in the studio a tad late, grabbing their essentials before they got it popping. Chicken tenders, Kool-aid and bubbly (Diddy's Ciroc) were on deck. Over 500,000 people tuned in via the IG Live. VERZUZ Battle co-creator Swizz Beatz was in the studio with the fellas and at one point told them they reached over 1 million views across all platforms. Throughout the session, X and Snoop kept clowning Swizz for boosting their heads up with inflated viewership numbers.

The VERZUZ Battle started with a prayer from X:

Then, Snoop kicked off the battle with “Deep Cover” and X responded with “Intro.” Snoop then played "Who Am I? (What's My Name?)" and DMX responded with "What's My Name?" Snoop came back with "Gin and Juice" and X dropped “Get at Me Dog" feat. Sheek Louch. After playing the track, X revealed Snoop actually inspired the track. He said when he would link up with Snoop and when they were about to depart from one another, Snoop would say “get at me dog” and so he turned the phrase into a song.

From there, the rap legends went hit-for-hit, rocking out to their catalog of classics. And they didn’t shy away from tracks that would be frowned upon during these times. After X played “It’s All Good,” Snoop responded with Dr. Dre’s “B*tches Ain’t Sh*t,” which he is featured on. The song is misogynistic and very degrading to women. Folks were in the comments mentioning how the problematic lyrics didn’t age well.

”Every time I get mad at my baby mother, that’s the song I put on. On repeat,” X said as Snoop laughed. “On my grandmother. I’m telling you. When I get mad at my muthaf*ckin’ fiancée, that’s it!,” he continued.

”Before y’all get to cancelling just please understand cultural context. We were cavemen back in the day,” Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club” radio host Charlamagne wrote in the comments.

If a rapper was to release a song like that now, they would get canceled with the quickness. Peep the clip below:

DMX is currently engaged to Desiree Lindstrom, who is the mother of his youngest child, Exodus. He was hype to watch his dad perform: 

X has 15 children in total with several different women. Oh, he also gave them a shoutout during the battle.

”I want to give a shoutout to my baby mothers,” X said.

”All of them?,” Snoop asked.

”Yeah,” X responded. “Dog love. Dog love.”


Right before he gave the shoutout, X yelled out “Where the b*tches at?!” as we all clutched our pearls at home. In the comments, Charlamagne asked if you can say “where the b*tches at?” in 2020 considering the climate.

As the battle continued, X and Snoop rocked out as the “Gangsta Holy Ghost” filled the studio. At the end, X and Snoop sat down like they were chilling in the neighborhood and started freestyling. It appeared X didn't really want to at first, but after Snoop hyped him up, he got busy. Peep the clip below:

It was a perfect rap pairing as Snoop kept the energy high, dancing all over the studio. X seemingly got winded while performing some of his tracks, but we’re just happy to see that he’s seemingly HEALTHY and out of trouble. This VERZUZ Battle was definitely a highlight of 2020.
