X almost counts as two problems. I mean Jigga’s gotta worry about his well being as a friend, but he also has to worry about him wile’n out and robbing Jay. You never know what that dude is gonna do. He’s a fucking wild card. Jay made beautiful music with X (Money, Cash, Hos), so he can’t abandon his homey. Plus they’re both NY cats. But, what the fuck is DMX doing? Seriously. Does anyone know? I mean, he’s obviously barking, I know that…but where? Imagine how stressful these questions are when the answer could be “your apartment”, or “jail, needing you to bail him out”. How many dudes do you know who could equally be 1) in a church preaching, 2) pretending to be a federal officer, 3) making an album, or 4) completely blowing off a sold out concert. Takes a rare man. In the alphabet Z comes after X, but in real life it might be the opposite, so Jay watches his shit around Earl Simmons.
