An extraordinarily high-selling rapper, DMX's murderous lyrics and affinity for barking have rocketed him up the Pop charts. With super-catchy synth beats provided by Swizz Beatz, Dame Grease, and others, he has become a staple on playlists coast to coast. His always aggressive delivery and violent imagery have captivated the imagination of fans worldwide, prompting him to release three full albums in less than two years. While innovative lyricism and diverse content are two things he will never be accused of, his selling power and reign on the charts cannot be denied.
