DMX spoke with Complex about the studio session for "I Don't Dance," his new single featuring Machine Gun Kelly.

Speaking of ďI Donít Dance,Ē how did your relationship with Machine Gun Kelly start?

Well, heís been a fan for a long time. He reached out because he wanted to do a song with me. Then, I saw one of his videos, and I was like, ďI like this kidís energy.Ē What made me gain an extra level of respect for him was when he came into the studio. He had his people and I had my people in the studio, so we kicked everybody out. It was just me and him, one on one, and we just vibed and talked for two hours before we even played one f****** beat.

You built that rapport.

Exactly. He felt the way I felt. You donít just want to walk in, drop a verse, and thatís it. He knows. It was like, ďLetís kick it. Letís see where each of us is coming from.Ē That way you know better how to work with a person.

He then went on to say that he doesn't necessarily listen to MGK's music, he just likes and respects him.

Mary Pilon of The New York Times interviewed Diddy about the "Undefeated" documentary and how he became involved in it.

"[The Weinstein Company Chief Operating Officer] David Glasser, who happens to be the coach of my son's Little League team, said, 'We got to do something special,'" Diddy told Pilon. "He called me and said: 'I've got something special. It's not for business or for money. It's for art.' I saw it and it just blew me away. You think it's going to be about football, but it's about life. I just related to it in so many ways. Usually documentaries take 45 minutes to get started, but within five minutes of this one, I was hooked."

"Puff has been really great with being supportive of me starting a solo career and we have agreed to let me go from Bad Boy," she said. "I'm really grateful to him. He didn't have to do that. He could have been what they say that he would be and he's not at all."

"It's really not as big as what people make it," she continued, referencing claims that Diddy has mistreated artists. "He just gave me a business decision. We were very, very amicable about it and I'm very grateful for him for that. And that's all it is. Now, it's just about the music and I want to make him and them proud of believing in me enough to let me go to try it."

In an interview with Montreality, Machine Gun Kelly revealed that he will release the "Half Naked and Almost Famous" EP/DVD on March 20 in Best Buy stores and may release a book in the summer, titled "The Early Tour Days of Machine Gun Kelly," covering his early touring experiences.

"It's a s***load of photos, a lot of sex stories and stuff like that," he said. "It's cool. It talks about a lot of s*** from last year and the year before that. Just like the early s***."

"We were gonna go for spring, but then we have the EP coming out, so we were like 'f*** it, hold off' and maybe we'll do this summer," he told Montrality, when asked about the release date. "I don't know. I don't want to do too many things that require my fans to just ball out on s***. You know, we have merchandise. I don't want like everything new I came out with to where like fans are like 'damn, I just spent so and so money on this,' like then 'hey, new book $30 - ah, f*** man, I have to work two months.' But, f*** it, though. It's great content. You can't really put a price on great content. Everything's not for free, anyway. I don't want to rob the kids who don't give a f*** what it costs to get it and support it. So, maybe we'll do it this summer."

DMX appeared on Power 105's "Breakfast Club" this morning, hosted by DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamange Tha God.

During the interview, Angela Yee mentioned how Machine Gun Kelly had named DMX as a big inspiration. In turn, DMX said that he likes MGK and that they had a "great vibe in the studio" (here's some footage). And then Charlamange suggested that MGK is not the type of artist that DMX would usually collaborate with. Here's the exchange:

Charlamange: "Now, Machine Gun Kelly seems like somebody you would diss, like 'I'm not rocking with this dude.'"

DMX: "No. Why? I'm not into the diss for nothing type of s***. I don't do that. There has to be a reason, something that was done to me."

Charlamange: "Lyrically, I wouldn't think you would like Machine Gun Kelly. He's a nice guy."

When French Montana's "Shot Caller (Remix)" was first released back in November, Rick Ross' verse featured a sample of the Jackson 5's "It's Great to Be Here," which was also used underneath The Notorious B.I.G.'s verse on Diddy's "It's All About the Benjamins (Remix)."

When the music video was released today, I observed that the sample was not present. I have just confirmed that it is not included in the commercially released version of the song, either.

The Weinstein Company announced that they have added Diddy as an executive producer on "Undefeated," a documentary about a football team in northern Memphis and the coach who "guides them through a rough, yet rewarding, football season."

The film has already been nominated for a 2012 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature and will open in limited release on February 17.

Perhaps more importantly, Diddy will also serve as an executive producer on the planned feature film remake of "Undefeated."

"I am excited to partner with Harvey Weinstein on this incredible project," said Diddy. "'Undefeated' is a great American story with a lot of heart and soul. It had a profound effect on me and I couldn't get it out of my mind when I saw it. There is so much truth and so much hope in this film and I feel passionately that everyone who sees it will be inspired."

"There's a moment in 'Undefeated' when the coach tells the players, 'Football doesn't build character Ė football reveals character.' I think that's one of the reasons football is so important to me. But, that line could just as easily apply to 'Undefeated' itself. In telling the story of a football team, this film says so much about individuals, about community and about our country. I'm so proud of 'Undefeated' and we feel very fortunate to have Sean on board to bring this story to audiences now and in the future."
