Biography

Menacing, muscular and magnetic, DMX has been hard-core rap's unrivaled top dog. After the deaths of icons 2Pac and Biggie, when rap was threatening to go soft--DMX's uncompromising intensity and street cred kept hard core hard. With the expected 2010 release of two new albums, The Best Of DMX (Island Def Jam/UMe), released January 26, 2010, collects 19 of his best tracks from 1998 ... Read more in Amazon's DMX Store

3.0 out of 5 stars Grand Champ?? More like Grand Chump January 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
There is a lot of controversy when it comes to naming albums. Talib Kweli's title of his album "Quality" brought in a lot of buzz. It is true you can't say quality without the "kweli," but it did bring about confusion. Calling "R&G: Rhythm & Gangsta" a "Masterpiece" brings about that same discussion as well. Nothing is different than DMX's newly titled album, "Grand Champ." If you're a dog lover, after a dog's fifth victory it is dubbed a "grand champ" which kind of makes sense for X since this is his fifth album of new solo material. But if you want to call "The Great Depression" a victory is all up to you seeing that X has lost a lot of pain in his bite if you know what I mean.

"Grand Champ" is supposed to be DMX's last album, since he is upset with the record labels taking all of the credit for his production. It makes sense, artists do work hard. But for a last album, will it be as hard and grimey as "It's Dark and Hell Is Hot," or will it be a major disaster like "The Great Depression?" Well, DMX has always been known to be a tough guy. He has won over women with his "hard" image and the men with his gruff delivery. However, X tries too hard to keep up his image on a lot of tracks. One prime example is the first single, "Where The Hood At," produced by newcomers the Tuneheadz. He has a whole verse where he talks about homosexuals and goes out of his way to bash them. Def Jam even took the liberty to edit out one of the bars: "Empty out (reload) and throw more (slugs)." Seems to me that Def Jam didn't take to kindly to DMX dissing homosexuals. This will be a current trend throughout the album when DMX ever feels the need to diss someone who is different from him just to keep his street rep.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Ain't Gotta Go Home X... September 28, 2003
Format:Audio CD
DMX returns with is quite possibly his last album. DMX is known for his raw emotion and unparalleled delivery and energy. After two lackluster albums `And Then There Was X' and `Great Depression', X gets back to what he does best; rapping about his life and releasing his anger on tracks. `Where The Hood At' is another in the long list of X's street anthems. X's growl is more forceful on this album and the production is moving, rather than being laid back and sad sounding ( although the album Great Depression reflected his life at the time). The 50 Cent & Styles P collabo is straight up gangsta. X easily drops the hottest verse, refusing to be outshined on his own track. The Dark Man sounds rejuvenated on tracks like Bring The Noize, Rob All Night, and We're Back which features Eve & Jadakiss. Everybody drops hotness on this song especially Eve; she can rap. X is also known for his excellent rap/R&B collaborations ( he has a classic one on every album ) and he doesn't disappoint on this album. Untouchable with Syleena Johnson and some Ruff Ryder members is REALLY tight. But the real gem of this album is the collaboration with Monica `Don't Gotta Go Home'. Man this song is a straight up classic ( it also appeared on Monica's album After The Storm ), it's right up there with `Slippin', How's It Goin Down and Coming From. He injects the soul into his album on Thank You which features the incredible Patti Labelle, and the heartfelt track Ayo Kato is also worthy of mention.
This album doesn't have too many flaws in it except for the pointless skits, the Swizz Beats track, and having CamRon on the album. DMX drops his best album since Flesh Of My Flesh (almost five years ago), so this album was long overdue...X goes out with a bark, and we can all hear it loud & clear. 4.5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Undisputed September 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Grand Champ keeps X undefeated in my book. His best offering since "It's Dark And Hell Is Hot", and all of his albums have been great. The cd is oozing with energy and makes your soul growl and bark over the sweet beats. The cd isn't in any hurry though. It's hard to pick standout tracks off of this album. Of course "Where The Hood At" is a great song that energizes you and has you looking for someone to smart eye you so you can throw down. I bounce around like a fool in my truck when the song is playing. "Dogs Out" is one of the more up-beat tracks laced with lyrics from previous albums and capped with a catchy hook. "Get It On The Floor" is one of my favorite songs. Obviously Swizz Beats without ever looking at the cd cover. I'm not necessarily a 50 fan, but if X gives him love and puts him on his album then perhaps I should ease up. Besides Obie finally got his album so what is there left to complain about? But I digress, "Shot Down" is awesome. "Bring The Noize", 2 words Hell Yeah!! I smell..... Anyway I could do this to the whole album but I think you get the idea. This album is a must!!

1. Dog Intro- 3/5
2. My Life- 3/5
3. Where Da Hood At- 5/5
4. Dog's Out- 4/5
5. Get It On The Floor (ft. Swiss Beats)- 4/5
6. Come Prepared- 3/5
7. Shot Down (ft. 50 Cent & G-Unit)- 5/5
8. Bring The Noise- 3/5
9. Untouchable- 4/5
10. F*** Y'all - 4/5
11. Ruff Radio (skit)- 1/5
12. We're Back (ft. Eve & Jadakiss)- 5/5
13. Rob All Night(If Im Gonna Rob)- 4/5

Anyone who likes any of X's albums from the past will like this one. The champ is back and taking the game to the next level once again.
