DMX & Rakim – ‘Don’t Call Me’ Feat. Shontelle & Aleks D.
The track appeared online seemingly out of nowhere after it went up on iTunes, though it’s not really clear how it came about. X did tweet about it yesterday upon its release, but that’s about it. As a result, who knows where this will end up or if it’s simply a one-off single. It’s probably the latter.
As for the music itself, ‘Don’t Call Me’ is an aggressive track that borders on rap-rock. The two New York MCs are backed by a live band, who erupt into the anthemic chorus featuring singer Shontelle. There’s even a guitar solo accentuated by X’s growls and screams. In other words, it’s a bizarre, jarring listen that, if nothing else, shows that someone needs to get these guys some better production.
