it's dark and hell is hot
welcome to it's dark and hell is hot, my tribute to the late american rapper, DMX.
rest in peace DMX, 1970 - 2021
earl simmons, darkman x, better known as DMX was one of the greatest rappers to ever pick up a microphone, a legend from yonkers, ny. i first started getting into DMX around 99 and a lot of his music was present during many of the amazing times during my formative years. you would often hear dmx blasting out the windows of my car as me and my friends cruised through town. today (09/04/2021) will be a day of nothing but dmx for me. peace.
DMX was an american rapper and actor. he released his debut album it's dark and hell is hot in may 98, and shortly after released his second album flesh of my flesh, blood of my blood in december 98.
DMX kicked off his run in 98 and continued until 2001 with 4 classic albums, although one could argue this run lasted until 2003 with his 5th album.
i'm currently building my dmx mixtape for this page, howver you can check it out over on spotify.
