Year of the Dog
Is, or was Hip Hop ever dead? DMX believes so, and that is why he will consider himself "Resurrecting Hip Hop" later this year. His new album is supposedly a response to Nas' last LP. I've said before that Hip Hop never died... just evolved. When DMX came out almost a decade ago, he was HOT. It was Dark, and Hell was definitely hot. Since then he has been on the decline with every album. I don't know one soul who could not quote at least one track from his first album. Between the robberies and the drug usage, I honestly don't know what to expect from this next album. I hope with all my might that this next album is a 5 mic album (wishful thinking). X stated that he will have guest appearances from The Game, 50 Cent, Nas, Mary J, Swizz Beats, Eve, and Bone Thugs N Harmony. Production will be taken care of by Swizz, Storch, Jonothan Rotem, and the Alchemist. There are some big names affiliated with this album... sure hope its not a bust. If you're trying to resuscitate X, don't mess this one up.
