DMX lashed out at Def Jam and other labels for the way they treat their artists — including himself. “The highest paid artists get 18 cents off a dollar, and the record company still owns their product even though they’ve paid for it,” X told Radio 1. “It’s like straight robbery, straight robbery. They give you nothing, everything is an advance. But they offer it to you, you know. ‘Hey, we was looking at the new Range Rover, we thought it would be a great idea if we got it for you.’ They get it for you, you look on your P&L (profit and loss) report, you’ve got $80,000 and like ‘thank you’ – you end up thanking yourself.”
