UNCENSORED explores the lives of popular personalities as they provide first-hand accounts of their success and the obstacles they faced throughout their careers. This episode will highlight the rapper in his own words as he discusses his more than 30-year career and legacy in hip hop. Raised in Yonkers, New York, by his mother, DMX was considered a “problem” as early as kindergarten. A tumultuous relationship with his mother caused him to bounce between boys’ homes and eventually detention centers. However, battle rapping solidified his love for the art, and his first break was a feature in The Source Magazine’s Unsigned Hype column in 1991. In 1992, he was signed to Ruffhouse Records. His debut album, It’s Dark, and Hell is Hot, didn’t arrive until 1998, but it peaked at No.1 on the Billboard 200. He quickly followed up with his second album, Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood, making him the first living artist to release two chart-topping albums in the same year. He eventually released six more studio albums, with three more reaching No. 1 and one reaching No. 2. His success in music primed him for acting. He starred in Hype Williams’ hip hop classic Belly and followed that success with roles in Romeo Must Die and Exit Wounds.Continue reading WATCH: #UncensoredDMX [full]

An ICON has been called home! There is NO ARTIST, like DMX! There is no RAPPER that has had the IMPACT that DMX, ne’ Earl Simmons has had on POP CULTURE!
The raspy, growling New York rapper who rose to fame with his 1998 blockbuster debut, “It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot,” became a chart mainstay for years! X was a dominant figure in hip-hop and popular music in the late 1990s and 2000s. Each of his first five albums reached No. 1 on the Billboard album chart.
Those works solidified his reputation as an intense performer who moved boldly among party and sex-themed music and songs that brashly chronicled his demons, abusive upbringing and struggles with his faith. Seven months after his Def Jam debut, DMX released his second album, “Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood,” during 1998’s Christmas week. The album sold just shy of 700,000 copies in its debut week, according to Billboard.
At the peak of his success, DMX crossed over into acting, with roles in action films such as 1998’s “Belly,” 2000’s “Romeo Must Die” and 2001’s “Exit Wounds.”
The INDUSTRY is REELING at the passing of this legend! The WELL-WISHES are pouring in from around the WORLD as we pay TRIBUTE to a truly complex and iconic artist and his artistry!
