Muze PNote DMX loves dogs, and feels a connection to them; he's certainly never made a secret of it, infusing his raps with numerous references to man's best friend. On the intro to his fifth record, GRAND CHAMP, the East Coast rapper/actor asserts his canine preference as, not surprisingly, the pit bull ("they make good companions, but even worse enemies/it's all in how you take 'em"). It's a fitting portrait of the gruffer-than-gruff-voiced, remarkably uncompromising hardcore rapper, who leaves the listener to either embrace his stark world or get the hell out.
Muze PNote GRAND CHAMP reveals DMX to be as fierce as ever ("only know how to be one way, that's the thug"), spewing his usual blend of unconstrained love and vitriol. He follows the intro with one of his trademarked laying-it-on-the-line rants before launching into a series of furious condemnations. Like 2Pac and Nas, DMX has learned the value of the schizophrenic combination of the inspirational and the ultra-violent; he could be his own greatest companion and his fiercest enemy. It's this quality that makes him one of the most intriguing hip-hop superstars out there, and GRAND CHAMP continues his larger-than-life legacy.

Bio

In a music industry that often specializes in manufactured stars--neatly wrapped packages that look the right way and do and say all the right things--it is a rare event to witness the emergence of a true artist. DMX, rap's ruffest ryder, is of this rare breed of artists. He has held the hip hop world spellbound with his raw, unbridled energy, unyielding passion and lyrics of fury since his explosive arrival in 1998--the year that was unquestionably the year of the dog. After stand-out performances on tracks like LL Cool J's "4.3.2.1", the Lox's "Money, Power, Respect", and Mase's "24 Hours to Live", DMX got the world's attention with his own, bonafide street anthem "Get At Me Dog."

In May of '98, he released his groundbreaking first effort It's Dark And Hell Is Hot, which also featured the intoxicating, gritty joints "Stop Being Greedy" and "Ruff Ryder's Anthem," debuted at number one and quickly went multi-platinum.

That summer, after a headlining stint on the Survival of the Illest tour, DMX retreated to the studio yet again, and in December he released the classic horror-film-on-wax, Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood. Flesh, which included the poignant, autobiographical song "Slippin'," and released only six months after its predecessor, also held the top spot on the charts--making DMX the first artist ever to have two number one debuts in the same year.

After spending the first part of 1999 on tour with fellow Def Jam artists Jay-Z, Method Man and Redman on the most successful hip hop tour ever, the Hard Knock Life tour, DMX split for the heat of Miami to work on his And Then Was X album.
