Rapper DMX always looks for new producers when recording - because he hates cashing in on trends.

And the WHO WE BE singer insists his songs work well without using the hip producer of the moment.

He says, "I always pick up new cats. Whoever got a hot beat. I'm not d*** riding.

"I'm not chasing down the same n***a everybody else chasing down in order to get one beat. It ain't that serious. I'm not looking for a beat to sell my music."
