Casanova Enlists DMX For ‘Don’t Play Games’
Time isn’t meant to be wasted, and it doesn’t take well before DMX makes his presence felt on Casanova’s new single “Don’t Play Games.” For his numerous loyal fans, still humming from the high of last night’s Verzuz battle, X’s impressive cadence is sufficient to start anticipation. Here, he holds it down with an intense chorus, giving ad-libs as Casanova shoots a savage verse. “Never rat, stay with a strap, X got Yonkers, BK on my back,” he raps, accentuated by a DMX’s signature “WHAAAT?!”
X gets the second verse all to himself, setting the tone with some animalistic imagery. “Gorilla on the track, King Kong silverback,” he spits. “Muthafucka want a problem, I’ma give it back / when shit hit the fan goons come out, and we all in / folding n***as up like a lawn chair, aw yeah.”
There’s plenty of chemistry here, and from numerous points of view it’s nothing unexpected that X and Casanova had the option to discover such effective artistic common ground.
