Throwback Thursday: DMX (1991 – 1995)
This week saw DMX announced as George Zimmerman‘s opponent for his “celebrity” boxing match.
Therefore, we are going to revisit five DMX tracks from his early career.
The first track is “Born Loser“. Released in 1992, Chad “Dr. Cuess” Elliott produced “Born Loser“, a song in which DMX actually sounds a bit like LL Cool J.
The second song is “Make A Move“. This is the original version that was released in 1994 and produced by Murder Inc. boss Irv Gotti. The song would later be remade and featured on DMX’s third album “…And Then There Was X“, released in 1999.
Track three is “Catchin’ the Same Hell“. This is possibly the earliest work DMX has done as the song was made in 1991. “Catchin’ the Same Hell” was produced by Chad “Dr. Cuess” Elliott.
The fourth song of our selection is Pudgee‘s (a.K.a Napoleon) 1995 song “Inner City Blues“. DMX was the featured artist alongside Pudgee. Nick Wiz takes the production credit.
The final song of our selected five is “Time To Build“. This is a Mic Geronimo song which featured not just a young DMX but also a young Ja Rule and JAY Z. Irv Gotti (a.K.A DJ Irv) produced this track.
DMX’s work is available on Amazon.
