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

Editorial Reviews

The DMX story is the stuff of legends, but like all good legends, it bears repeating. Born in Baltimore and raised in Yonkers, New York, DMX endured an exceptionally difficult childhood. Shuttling between group homes, in and out of trouble with the law, he might have been destined for a tragic life, if not for his extraordinary talent for expressing himself through rap. Armed with one of the most ferocious flows in the history of hip-hop.

It's no suprise that Def Jam would drop a greatest hits album for DMX since he left the record label and dropped Year of the Dog...Again on Columbia back in late '06. DMX has been in the rap game since the early 90's finally getting noticed in '98 with the song "Ruff Ryders Anthem". Collaborating with artists like Jay-Z, Ja Rule (those were the good ol' days of Def Jam) he has dropped rememerable verses. He has dropped some dope albums like It's Dark and Hell Is Hot & Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood back in '98.

The Definiton of X: Pick Up The Litter is a good overview of DMX between 1998-2003. What I like about these albums is that most of the hit singles are on here (isn't that what a greatest hits is all about). Classic songs like "Get At Me Dog", "Party Up (Up In Here)", "Blackout", and "Slippin'" are on here, and are great to hear. I also enjoy "Who We Be" from The Great Depression album as wel, as each song brings back memories of bumping most of these songs throughout middle and high school.

It's no suprise that, like everybody else, has their own beef with what songs should and should not be on here. I personally believe some of the remixes are on here like "Ruff Ryders Anthem (remix)" and "Get At Me Dog (remix)", not to mention a few B-sides as well.

Overall, this is a great place to start listening to DMX, especially if you missed him in his earlier years.

Like a lot of people my age, DMX is an artist I've grown up listening to, and while he's never been my favorite rapper, I've always thoroughly enjoyed his music, be it pump-up jams, depressed narratives, or collabos with the Ruff Ryders. "The Definition of X: Pick of the Litter" is a poorly labeled greatest hits compilation of his five Def Jam albums. DMX left Def Jam in 2005, so his most recent album, 2006's Year of the Dog...Again is not represented on this disc. The bulk of the album's tracklist is taken from his first two albums, It's Dark and Hell Is Hot and Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood, both released in 1998. These albums are widely considered classic material and contain a lot of his darker, angrier work. There are six songs from 1999's And Then There Was X, his most commercially successful album, containing most of his most popular hits. 2001's The Great Depression and 2003's Grand Champ both contribute two tracks, which is suitable because while both solid albums, they contained less great material than his first three.Read more ›

I have been a true DMX fan, since 1997. In his rhymes you can hear his hurt deep within. My personal favorite song is slippin in my darkness hours of life, that song saved me emotionally. I also love his cockiness, in the song What the B-----'s want, and F--- all day. I enjoy all the songs selected on this disc.

His songs are not negative, they are about him releasing his rage, in his journey in life. If people are not familar with the streets, then they would think his music is offensive, or if those who never had struggle, and don't understand street lifestyle, would be threatened by the content in his music.

NO matter what, the media says about you, I appreciate your artistic style, and rhyme skills. If you are fan of DMX then get this CD.

These songs were not picked by dmx, this collection was put together in 07, way after x had parted ways with def jam. I don't think that DMX would have waisted valuable disc room for two prayer songs when they could have included actual music material. why a greatest hits album would ever include skits is beyond me. that is the main beef i have with this collection, aslo the fact that the jacket does not include which album each song came off of like most ever greatest hits albums. The main song I thought would have added to the album is the track "Damien"from his first LP.
