T.I. says that he and the late DMX were planning to make music before his passing

The self-proclaimed “King Of The South” spoke about the late rapper on "The Big Podcast with Shaq."

TIP revealed He almost collaborated with DMX before he passed away

T.I. was recently a guest on Shaquille O’Neal‘s The Big Podcast, alongside former NBA player Jamal Crawford. The Atlanta rap legend recalled bonding with X shortly before his passing and revealed they discussed making music together.

“X came to my house like two weeks before he died. We were planning to work together,” he said. “He came to the studio, and I was recording something else. I think by the time I had finished he had to run to another engagement.

“And then one time he said he wanted to go to the studio, but I was at the house with the kids, and I couldn’t get out, so he said, ‘I’ma just pull up on you, man.'”

The Atlanta rap veteran continued: “He came by, and we just sat up all night ’til four, five in the morning, talking loud in the kitchen. I was having margaritas; I think he might have had a beer. Smoking and chilling, just talking like we known each other forever. That was the first time we had ever really [met].

“We were talking about kids, and he left town that day and I left town, I was taking my kids to Orlando. And we was on the phone planning to meet back up and work again. I think maybe two, three days later, he had passed.”
