DMX has a story unlike any other. From his upbringing and life in the street, to his rise into superstardom and ultimately his passing in 2021 it seems like the Dark Man X had literally done in all. But before he was walking red carpets, he was stalking the streets and serving any MC that dared challenge him. After a few false starts DMX finally got his chance to bark with the big dogs in 1998 when his Ruff Ryders/Def Jam album IT'S DARK AND HELL IS HOT was released. This week the guys take us back to '98 when X dropped his first of two chart topping multi-platinum releases to break down his stellar debut.
