Method Man x DMX x Joey Bada$$ – “Cold Place” feat. Scarface (Video)


Straight-forward beat, and lay straight-forward lyrics from some straight lions, and you get a nice FIRE going. Good look for Joey Bad holding it down with these Golden Era greats – DMX, Meth, and Facemob.

Swizz Beatz x Rick Ross x DMX – “Just In Case”

Okay. A collabo with Rick Ross and DMX will get clicks and listens on sight. But this is DOPE beyond that. And of course, the result is an anthem!

The DMX comeback kicks off with a Rick Ross and Swizz Beatz collaboration.

In March, studio footage of DMX, Swizz Beatz, and Rick Ross surfaced, leaving fans excited at the prospect at a focused comeback from the beloved Dark Man. In a clip still available on Swizzy’s IG, the producer can be seen vibing in a packed studio, complete with Godfather Of Harlem star Forest Whittaker on hand.

DMX Breaks Down His Most Iconic Tracks (Video)

I’m angry all the time… I got a lot to be grateful for… It’s kinda who I am…

Great idea to have a studio bus right on the movie-making lot for DMX. Joel Silver gets a check mark in the genius column for that move. Got some bangers for the movie soundtrack that way.

Rap legend DMX breaks down his most iconic tracks, including ‘X Gon’ Give it to Ya,’ ‘Ruff Ryder’s Anthem,’ ‘What’s My Name?,’ ‘Party Up (Up in Here),’ and ‘Where the Hood At?’

Nas – “I Am…” (The Has-Lo Version) [Album]


Interesting. VERY! Has-Lo redoing the Nassir classic project “I Am”…bold move! It panned out though. Has-lo finally decided to share it with the world, literally, because this is a FREE download. Check out what Has-Lo has to say about this Version:

I was going through my hard drive and came across these. A few years ago I was working on a remix version of Nas’ “I Am”. I never completed it due to some technical issues. These rough mixes are all that’s left of the project. I figured it’d be pointless to sit on them. Maybe some of you will enjoy them. Some of these beats will be remade and used for other things, some will only exist here. Anyway, I hope you dig it.

TMZ: DMX Screaming His Heart Out On A Slingshot Ride (Video)

“I ain’t gone front. I’m scared as sh!t.”

When a DMX hollers, and there’re no other rappers around, it definitely makes a sound. And great viral video. True, anything X does on camera is going viral nowadays; but this moment of humanity…looking fear dead in the face…conquering challenges at the height of… a carnival ride.

Hahaaa! This TMZ clip has made the rounds on the web. DMX having fun, meeting new folk (dude in the seat next to him with a reassuring, “It ain’t nuttin'”), and wildin’ out in general. Watch and chuckle.

DMX Says ‘Iyanla Fix My Life’ and Then… (Video)

Compelling television. Indeed.

Earl ‘DMX’ Simmons appears on OWN’s ‘Iyanla Fix My Life’ to ‘do the work’ with the show’s host. Well, it started out that way. But where how it ended up going…man. I won’t spoil it, but wow, Iyanla Vanzant got up in X’s…face…and it was on! Watch. Just know that, like whenever you spotlight DMX, in this hour-long vid, X Gone Give It To Ya!

Seriously though, all said and done, #SupportDMX for real. This brother means too much to Hip-Hop and humanity. I hope for the best for X and his fam and his life.

Media Gasface: The Dean Brothers (Video)

“Meet the Dean Brothers, TD and Waah :
the first one fathered Swizz Beatz, and the second one the whole Ruff Ryders movement.

You know when people say Kool Herc is the roots to it all ?
That’s true for these guys too, only litteraly : the man was living in the apt under them back in the 70’s.

Ain’t that unexpected ? So is learning that the blueprint of DMX’s career was designed by Mount Vernon’s most notorious Overweight Lover, Heavy D.” -Gasface
