    Best Known For

    Following the deaths of Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G., DMX took over as the undisputed reigning king of hardcore rap. He was that rare commodity: a commercial powerhouse with artistic and street credibility to spare. Everything about DMX was unremittingly intense, from his muscular, tattooed physique to his gruff, barking delivery, which made a perfect match for his trademark lyrical obsession with dogs. He could move from spiritual anguish one minute to a narrative about the sins of the streets the next, yet keep it all part of the same complex character. The results were compelling enough to make DMX the first artist ever to have his first four albums enter the charts at number one.

    Has tattoo on his back of his dog killed by a motorist and the words ONE LOVE BOOMER.
