In Weekend 2 of his Coachella debut, Murda Beatz kept the surprises coming as he brought out DMX for delivery of the legend’s “Ruff Ryder’s Anthem.”
Throughout the week, the Canadian producer teased that he had something up his sleeve but after such a stellar showing last weekend, there was no telling what direction he’d take things this time.
During Weekend 1, he brought out A$AP Ferg and Rich The kids to the crowd’s delight, a decision he says was made at the last minute.
“It’s kind of a spur of the moment thing. ASAP Ferg, he’s the fucking festival God, I was just like ‘Yo I’m at Coachella, I need to bring out ASAP Ferg!'” he told Variety. “Me and him have a relationship already, we’ve never made any music together but been in the studio a bunch of times. I hit him up and he was down. Shout out Rich the Kid, that’s my dog. Been my brother for seven years. I met him with the Migos a long time ago.”
On Sunday (Apruil 21st), DMX is scheduled to hit the stage again alongside Kanye West in the Coachella edition of his Sunday Service. Lauryn Hill is expected to make an appearance as well.
