Hip-Hop Rumors: Fredro Starr Disses DMX On New Freestyle

Queens rapper, Fredro Starr from Onyx has released a new freestlye taking more than a few verbal jabs at DMX. Although the reason for the diss is still unclear, Fredro hints that he is simply retaliating to something that X said. In the new freestyle, Fredro Starr raps:

“This nigga X talking shit right, if he ever try it again/He be a front of the firing pen/If his crew front, there be a lot of dying men/At the funeral, family and crying friends,” he raps. “Let’s get back to the money, we go together like tire and rims/You wanna ball? We can go as high as the rim/So much weed smoke, time to call the firemen.”

DMX and Fredro Starr have somewhat of a history together, collaborating on the track “Shut Em’ Down” back in 1998.

DMX has been on a promo run for his new album, Undisputed. I’m sure he’ll respond to the freestyle sooner or later. Take a listen to Fredro Starr’s diss freestyle toward DMX below. Are you feeling it?


Shout out to Disqus @disqus_3iDWBAoCwg for putting me on to the origin of the DMX / Fredro Starr issue. Apparently, DMX blew up Fredro Starr’s spot as a hater on a recent interview with the Breakfast Club in NYC. The origin of their “beef” stems from a woman who DMX allegedly had a baby with who Fredro Starr claims to have introduced to him. The woman was originally sleeping with Fredro, but left him for DMX at an industry party. DMX says that Fredro was still texting the girl knowing that she as with him and he claims to have seen the text messages.

Fredro tells the story a little differently. You can check out Fredro’s side of the story on his Tales Of The Industry series (Ep. 4).

“This episode was never released and tucked in the archives out of respect for X’s situation at the time as well as his ongoing troubles…”

    Smh, you want to be a journalist in Hip Hop and you don’t even keep your ear to the street, lol. In an interview with the Breakfast Club, DMX was talking about how men harbor feelings for women. Ran into Fredro at a club in LA back in the day, Fredro was talking real fly, DMX asked him about the chick he was with, Fredro played it off like she was on the house, DMX is like bet and takes her back to the hotel where he sluts her out the whole while Fredro is texting the chick like “Yo you still with dude”, DMX says he saw the texts. I believe DMX too, Fredro has always seemed like a lame to me, little man with a Napoleon complex.

      Thank you for da information.

      Sydney, i ain’t mad atcha, i understand… i know fa sho that if Rihanna or Chris Brown were involved in this, we would have read all about it already!

    • Fredro sounds bitter…Sticky Fingaz blew up…..Freddro had his chances….dissing X isn’t one of them….plus X will beat that @$$!

      Shut em down 98 was onyx’s hottest album!

      • If Fredro sounds bitter, then DMX sounds even worse.

      • bisolabliss

        no surprise here Dior, you are now pulling a ‘Montezuma’…. i.e. attacking X on every page, on every news article or rumour piece, SMH

      • I know you LOVE DMX but if he can open his mouth to talk smack about someone, he need to respect the fact that other artists will open their mouths and talk about him too.

      • Yo! Who are you talmb’n bout Montezuma? LOL

        He hasn’t been on the new board much since the “UPGRADE”…..every now & then I fire ” E ” shots at him ( Then take ” E ” Cover ).

        If you get in touch with him, tell him to link up!

      • Nah, X on some ‘chet though…but when hasn’t he been?

      • i actually have that cd too. their last major release i believe too.

      • That ‘chet was Fiyah! Rob & Vic, Veronica, Street Ninjaz, React ( $00.50’s first feature? ) & basically the type of album you can let bang all the way through!

  • He doesn’t even flow or anything, he constantly stops…and what’s with the flames? Is that supposed to make the weak rhymes more intense or something? Back in the day X would own this guy all day long, even 2012 pissed off X would take him on easily. DMX could beat Fredro Starr with one of his rants on a radio interview.

  • dominicancoke

    Dmx said the following which made little freddro mad..(105power breakfast club) for example freddro star you know how he is ayo b ayo son whats good baby onyx what x what up baby!

So I take her to the telly and slut.her out and.this nicca.texting her all night ayo shorty.u still with him? What kind of sh!t is that

  • 3iDWBAoCwg is right – FRedro trying to grab at something but nothing there. X sons this dude period. Sticky and Fredro had beef to @one point no? I wouldnt even entertain him

  • Sosa_Limone

    i just saw the ruff ryder anthem video a couple days ago for the first time in a hot minute, but i am pretty sure i saw Onyx in the video rocking ruff ryder shirts, along with the lox, and eve. i thought it was pretty interesting, like they were supposed to be down with the movement, but i never saw them with the ruff riders again after that video

    • mosestobymcgeethree

      DMX always sounded, to me at least, like he was Onyx wrapped into one.

  • RichFromBX

    c’mon…X is like 42 or 43 and Fredro is like 41…83 years of experience and this is how cats are acting..smh..

  • bigdoe6

    Fredro lost his pass with this one. He’s OFFICIALLY on my lame list. Aint no fun if the homies can’t have none. Stop crying homie.

  • therealest1

    Why does it always start with a woman?

  • Pingback: Nah Right » Video: Fredro & DMX Are About To Beef Over a Groupie()

  • He’s trying hard not to show that he was hurt and caught feelings… LoL.. FOH! You can tell when a cat is fronting… LoL

  • Hey it’s fair game…If DMX can talk smack while drunk as hell, then Fredro Star can do it as well….At least Fredro is not leaning and sipping on anything.

    • bisolabliss

      get a life already…

  • LetsBeRealpeople

    (Baby steps Syd, baby steps.)
    I don’t know when y’all saw the BC interview, but I saw last week. It wasn’t a short clip either. Matter of fact this part that got this dude shook, was like 13 minutes in, if I am not stretchin’ truth too much. Dude acting like a feist dog, he too old to react like this. Freestyle? So he “freestyled” his reaction to a story DMX told a week ago….come on…lame.

  • toreal

    I’m glad he went in on that jealous crack head.
