    If he dropped an album today I'd buy it. Not many rappers can stay so consistent for so long.

    The REALEST to ever do it, sometimes I think too damn real for a fake-ass industry; And maybe in the eyes of industry heads X is just too real for them to handle. We recognize you X and we got your back (no homo). It's crazy I've been listening to "Grand Champ" all day today even before seeing this post...

      I think if X read your post he would tell you that if you aint a homo then you dont have to let people know. "You screamin no homo...but that's so homo"

    DMX answered any and all questions about his current abilities. The now-40-year-old rapper stalked the stage with the fervor of an emcee half his age, belting ferociously into his microphone and generally wowing everyone in the room. Prison didn't hurt his flow; his rhythm sounded as crisp and on-point as ever. If anything, it seemed, his jail time had sufficiently reinvigorated the oft-troubled performer. His next offering, "Who We Be," also from 2001 maintained the same high-energy appeal. The crowd was hyped up, and so too was the performer. After just two songs, he could no longer contain his glee. "I was made for this shit right here!" he screamed after making sure that the audience knew that this was his first post-prison performance. "I ain't going anywhere," he continued, the crowd cheering him on.The crowd, clearly, was there for DMX and only DMX. They didn't leave disappointed.

    good glad to read this. 500 people is a start. get it right. get yourself right. then do 1000 people, 2000 people, and finally 5000 people, and then release an album X, and maybe you can help bring an end to this tight pants bullshit.. but i think a lot of fans are swayed by the media, and won't buy X's new shit because of all the mishaps... i say that's bullshit look at DMX's numbers. they are unbelievable. people would give they soul's up to have the amount of success this dude had. keep ya head up
