Dark Light

R.I.P. to the late, great DMX. When he was doing it, there was no other rapper like him. When he was hot, he was scorching.

Dropping two classics – It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot and Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood – back-to-back in ’98 wasn’t enough. He was also the the first artist to have their first five albums debut on top of the charts. There will never be another like DMX.
