I am back for the umpteenth time with my DMX diary. I have been called and sent messages after his death was confirmed you’d thought he was relative of mine. Those close to me knew how much I loved him.
Like I said in a post past, I reckon with his first five albums which are; It’s Dark and Hell is Hot, Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of my Blood, And Then There Was X, The Great Depression and Grand Champ but my favourite of the 5 is And Then There Was X. It was also the most successful commercially and the one that got him 2 Grammy Noms.
And Then There Was X is one Album I have listened to over a 100 times without skipping a track. I can kind of say same for Its Dark and Hell is Hot and Flesh of My Flesh but And Then There Was X had tracks that were not deeply rooted with hard-core vibes. It was an album anyone can vibe with and it seemed DMX wanted to show a slightly soft side of his.
My top 5 tracks on the album are; D-X-L (Hard White), Fame, What these B**ches Want, Good Girls Bad Guys and Party Up.
