This morning the legend DMX passed away at the age of 50. I started to write this blog last night because RIP DMX was trending well. It turns out that some douches were just trying to get clout.
Claudia wasn’t the only one who prematurely said that DMX died. Comedian Luenell had to post this apology after the entire internet roasted her.
I feel like the year I was born is the cutoff for people that love DMX. When I was in elementary school, the older kids would be passing the portable CD player, with the volume at max, and you could hear DMX growling and barking through the headphones. 8-year-old David had no idea what to think, but I loved every second of it. I was that kid that loved dogs, came into school with t-shirts of dogs, and even had the nickname MadDog. That probably had to do more with me fighting anybody who looked at me the wrong way than my love for dogs. Regardless the anger that DMX rapped with was what I loved, and his music videos were always insane. As a kid, I thought that the only people who drove dirt bikes and four-wheelers were dumbass rednecks like my friends and me. When I watched Where The Hood At and Ruff Ryders Anthem, my mind was blown to see people popping wheelies in the middle of city streets.
Getting back to the original clip that I posted, that’s the largest crowd I’ve ever seen. It almost doesn’t seem real. It’s a sea of bodies that turn from individuals to a never-ending ocean of people. We have crowd surfing, women sitting on top of people’s shoulders with their titties hanging out, mosh pits, and DMX creating havoc. His 1999 Woodstock performance is one of the most magical and crazy rap performances I have ever seen. I love watching live concerts, but they have the entire song playing for most rappers, and they pick and choose when they sing along. They seem more like a hype person than an actual musician. Not DMX, he growled and rapped his way through the entire 45-minute concert.
If you want to watch the entire concert, I found the YouTube link here, and I don’t know how YouTube hasn’t figured out tits are hanging out, but we will keep that our little secret. RIP DMX.
P.S. When DMX drops his overalls to the ground to take his shirt off, you can see thousands of chick’s panties instantly become wet. I don’t know who it is, but she must’ve been important to be on the stage, but she gasps at the sight of DMX in his boxers.
