After four years growling from atop the charts, DMX fell off for a while. News of the sketchy crimes the snarling, barking rapper was committing (the multi-platinum artist dabbled in carjacking) made it seem like X's slippin' was the result of ODB-like tendencies. DMX wasn't entirely to blame -- Ja Rule had stolen his growly sing-rap style and exploited it to shit. Now that Rule's a distant memory and even 50 Cent's losing that new-rapper smell suburban kids go for, the time's right for an uncaged DMX to remind everyone who runs shit. After a year of Kanye and Pharrell's Lacoste-sweater-vest raps, this gutter shit should find DMX welcomed back with a vengeance.
