DMX chatted with XXL magazine about his beef with Ja Rule and his ongoing trouble with his record label, and surprisingly brought up the Backstreet Boys as musicians in a similar predicament. Asked if he was jealous of Ja, X said, “I’d be jealous of the Backstreet Boys when they sold more than me. The only reason you think of jealous of you [Ja Rule] is because you know you sound like me. That’s common fu**ing sense, man. You think Backstreet Boys are jealous of N’Sunk or whatever the fu** they name is? Fu** no – they have better things to worry about.” As for his label dissing him, X added, “Goin’ back to Backstreet. They made their label huge and brought them in sh**loads of money and now they can’t record, I heard, because their label is fu**ing them around. I feel them. They’re real mutha fu**as in their own way, but their management ‘team’ refuses to recognize that sh**. I feel those men or boys or whatever the fu** you wanna call them. We give our souls to our music. We put our lives on the fu**ing wax and [the labels] treat us like sh**.”
